FOR senior citizen Adorado De Guzman, punctuality is the best policy.
This is why when he sat as senior citizen mayor for-a-day (Scofad) October 7, De Guzman's sole administrative order centered on said virtue.
De Guzman issued Administrative Order 152 "directing all executive departments of the city government of Baguio to strictly abide by the prescribed government office hours by being punctual…"
This, he said, will enable government employees "to better serve the public in consonance with existing laws, rules and regulations."
"In exigency of the service, there is a need for all officials and employees in the executive departments to strictly abide by the prescribed government office hours to attend to the affairs of their respective offices," he stressed.
"All officials and employees are hereby directed to make themselves available during the prescribed hours at their respective workstation in the discharge of the official functions such as but not limited to the signing of official documents, consultations and personnel interaction with the clientele of the City Government of Baguio," he ordered.
De Guzman who is the president of the Federation of Baguio Senior Citizens Association (FBSCA) also believes that many things can be accomplished with being always on time.
The SCOFAD shares his high regard for said virtue with his counterpart mayor Mauricio Domogan who is also known for being a stickler for promptness. (Aileen Refuerzo)
