The Naga City Government, under the leadership of its elected officials, will be working to improve services in education, health, tourism, business, and agriculture.
Mayor Nelson Legacion, now in his second term as the LGU’s chief executive, said this in his speech shortly after taking his oath of office on June 18, this year, along with Vice Mayor Cecilia V. de Asis and the 10 newly elected city councilors who will compose the 14th Sangguniang Panlungsod.
The swearing-in ceremony, which was held at the Plaza Quezon in Central Business District I, was administered by Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Gerona Robredo.
In his message, Legacion also said that he will commit his leadership to work on establishing additional schools and school buildings in the city. With more schools and stronger support for the educational sector, he said he is confident Naga City will be known also as “Pandayan nin Futuro kan mga Kaakian” aside from being a Maogmang Lugar.
In the health sector, the mayor said that the city will find ways to augment ts modern medical equipment and apparatuses to ensure speedy delivery of medical services to Nagueño patients.
At present, the city has Naga City Hospital, City Health Office 1, City Health Office 2 at Sta. Cruz New Development Area, Our Lady of Lourdes Infirmary in Barangay Carolina, the New Naga City Medical Hospital 2, which is undergoing construction at Balatas New Development Area, and the Super Health Center which is going to be constructed in Barangay Concepcion Pequeña.
He also vowed to implement programs that will make the operations of local tourism and businesses vibrant in collaboration with private institutions. “We are going to attract more entrepreneurs work doubly to attract more entrepreneurs who can invest in our city,” he said.
In agriculture, the mayor plans to help the local farmers by way of buying their products. “The LGU shall directly buy their rice that we are going to distribute to several thousands of Sanggawadan and QUEEN beneficiaries as rice subsidy,” he said.
The city mayor also includes in his plan for the next three years the building and repair of more roads as important facilities to improve the services on education and health.
