Mayor Belen T. Fernandez thanked Ms Balon Dagupan 2017 and her court as well as the balikbayans, government employees, volunteer workers and professionals, civil society organizations and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) for helping her great dreams to make history in Dagupan.

Fernandez narrated that 2016 was a year of victory for everyone, the children, persons with disabilities, the teachers, fisherfolks, informal settlers, the poor and the marginalized sector.

“The Good Lord has blessed us and our plans as we endeavored to achieve so much for our city in terms of improved public services, better healthcare, better infrastructure, improved governance, among others and looked at our city with kindness and faith. This is the reason we are gathered for this celebration,” Fernandez said.

“Subalit para sa akin, ang mas makabuluhan

g kasaysayan ay ang pagsama-sama nating pag-ukot sa kasaysayan at magpahanggang  ngayon ay magkasama pa rin tayo — nakatayo, nakatindig, mas malakas, mas matatag, mas masigla, mas masaya,” she added.Fernandez disclosed that people are working hard because they believe and trust that her leadership which made a big difference and that Dagupeños has now become more emboldened to speak of the big difference that the city has reaped so far.  

“Balon Dagupan is not just a fancy word — it is the beating of the heart of every Dagupeno who dreams of what our city should be — modern, forward-looking, confident, decisive, and sensitive to needs and the pursuit of happiness of our people. We have overcome many obstacles, we have shunned our critics, and we have triumphed over many adversities — these we have done because you believe in our vision. You believe that we can make history,” said Fernandez.Fernandez also recognized the contributions of the balikbayans, the OFWs for all their hard work and sacrifices and the great honors that they brought to the city.

“Please know that we dedicate this evening to our balikbayans through our annual Pawil Dagupan program. They who miss the crows of roosters that greet them every morning… they who miss the quiet lullaby of our clean and pristine waters,” said Fernandez.

As the city celebrates its platinum year next year, Fernandez expressed optimism that the coming year “shall be a great time to be a Dagupeño”.“With the enduring love, faith and blessings of our Almighty, and with all of your support and commitment to our shared enterprise in good government, I believe that we shall write another good story in the great pages of our next history in the City of Dagupan,” she said.
