ASINGAN-The lady mayor of this town is one of the nominees for the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines (TOYM) for this year.

Mayor Heidee G. Chua said she is elated and full of gratitude for being a nominee to the prestigious national award.

“Malaking kasiyahan at puno ng pagpapasamalat po ang maging nominee sa TOYM,” Chua said.

The theme this year highlights the role models in the community and their importance in serving as inspiration to the young.

For the past 51 years, the Junior Chamber International-Philippines has undertaken the search for The Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines, a select elite group of individuals who have shown selfless dedication for their work, passion for excellence and compassion towards the communities they belong.

Chua said that she just does what she feels is good for the others because it makes her feel better.

Arlene Lomibao of Asingan said that the mayor’s the passion to work for the welfare of the people is contagious.

“Si Mayor Chua po ay 24/7 na mayor,” Lomibao said. “Kaya pati kaming mga staff niya ay nahawa na sa kanyang passion for work.”

Abono Party-list President Ponciano V. Onia Jr. said he is a personal witness to the dedication for work of Mayor Chua.

“Mga 5:30pm na noong pumunta ako sa Municipal Hall ng Asingan at nagalak ako na si Mayor Chua ay busy pa rin na nag-eentertain ng visitors,” Onia said. “Iyong ibang mayors diyan…after lunch hindi mo na mahagilap.”

Chua said that she finds strength in prayer and the warm smiles of people who she loves and cares for.

She cites her mother Zenaida Ganigan as her role model.

“My mom is model grassroots leader and public servant,” Chua said. “She is a two-term councilor and is now on her last term as Punong Barangay.”
