Pangasinan keeps good governance

DAGUPAN CITY -Pangasinan was awarded the Seal of Good Housekeeping recently, but a member of the provincial board said that the province will continue to uphold good and transparent governance with or without the award.
Board Member Von Mark Mendoza said, “Even without the Seal of Good Housekeeping we are already doing that [good and transparent governance] from the very first day the governor [Amado T. Espino Jr.] assumed his post.”

“At least, we are happy that the national government has already recognized what the governor has done or has been doing,” he added.

The Seal of Good Housekeeping is awarded by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) to local government units which have proven to be effective in promoting accountable governance, transparency in transactions and auditing, said Rolando A. Cabradilla, DILG cluster head for Pangasinan.

Cabradilla and Mendoza were guests at the KBP Forum at the Philippine Information Agency office on Thursday.

Mendoza said the governor has always reminded the provincial officials to just simply work and that any award later on will be a consolation.

The effort of the provincial government, he added, is spurred by the goal “to make Pangasinan the best province not only in the region but in the whole country.”

The board member said the late DILG Secretary Jesse M. Robredo, in his last visit to the province had told him that “Pangasinan is working and has been complying with all the requirements of the Matuwid na Daan program of President Benigno S. Aquino III.”

Last Monday, the governor formally received the award and a P7 million Performance Challenge Fund.

Three cities and 24 municipalities in the province have been conferred the award as well. (PIA-Pangasinan)
