ROSALES- “All the projects that are implemented in the municipality including my projects and that of the Sangguniang Bayan (SB) are yours. The funds came from your taxes and you must take the ownership. We, your elected officials, are only instruments in providing you with the basic services.”

Vice Mayor Dominador “Jojo” E. Pajela Jr. said this to barangay officials and towns people last December 16 during the opening and launching of the physical fitness gym, hair, nail and massage clinic and dart and billiard hall.

Pajela said the said facilities were funded out of his and the SB members’ “meager” countrywide development fund (CDF) and their personal funds.

“I have only P500,000 funds annually for project development and if I divide this among the 37 barangays, each will just receive around P7,000. This is a small amount compared to the funds of Mayor (Ricardo) Revita that’s why I have to shell out my personal money to provide for your needs,” he said .

Pajela also said each municipal councilor has only P250,000 CDF which is not enough to support the needs of their constituents.

Earlier, Pajela distributed T-shirts to the members of the Rosales Vendors Association which he said to make them physically upkeep to the eyes of the people.

“I have provided them with T-shirts so that they will be respected by the people. Aside from the market vendors, the pedicab drivers will soon have their own uniforms. Why am I doing his? I believe that the people should look clean. Let’s start the cleanliness with our people and not concentrate only with our surroundings,” he said.

He further said that aside from the boxing gym, he will also launch trainings for the mixed martial arts including Muay Thai, adding he wanted the town to be the center of sports in the province.

“Our gym is open 24 hours daily. We have installed amenities inside like computers, Wi-Fi, visitors lounge and coffee shop. You are the VIPs inside the facilities particularly our poor townmates. Tell me if there will be employees who will not treat you well and I will fire him,” he said.

Pajela chided the members of the police force of the town, saying they showed no respect to him whenever he arrives at the office.

“You are only giving salute to Mayor Revita when he arrives. But for me, I have not experienced any respect from you as if I am not a municipal official. Even then, I will construct soon a shooting range for you to upgrade your skills in shooting. But I hope that you will not be shooting innocent citizen of the town and physically torture them as what had happened in the past,” he told the local police.

He further said drug addicts and alcoholics should not be silenced for life but should be rehabilitated and reformed.

“These people have lives and only God could take them away. We will rehabilitate them by having soon psychiatrists and psychologists to examine their behaviors. I believe that given a chance, they could be reformed and be even better that any pastor or a religious person,” Pajela said.

He also talked about the plan of putting up a Rosales Community Hospital which will be at par with those in Metro Manila, and a Rosales Allied Health Colleges which will cater to students with free books and tuition fees.

“I want that the town to have a character. Ganito Kami sa Rosales…Malusog, Malinis, Mapayapa at Maunlad,” he said.

After the program, he turned over two-units tri-cycle patrol to the village heads of Carmen East and Carmen West which he said will help in the peace keeping efforts in the villages. He promised the other 35 villages they will also be given similar vehicles soon.

The event was attended by 6th District Rep. Marlyn Primicias-Agabas who lauded Vice Mayor Pajela and the members of the Sangguniang Bayan for their developmental advocacies in the town.

Agabas donated P50,000 as seed money for the maintenance of the newly opened facilities.
