CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan -- Governor-elect Daniel R. Fernando on Friday pledged to lead the province to greater heights and asked the help and cooperation of all local officials and full support of the Bulakenyos.

During the mass oath-taking of the newly elected local officials, held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in this city, the former vice governor also expressed his gratitude for the trust and confidence given to him by former governor and now Vice Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado and for the opportunity to serve the people of Bulacan.

Fernando took his oath of office before Executive Judge Olivia V. Escubio.

He said the mass oath-taking is a perfect venue for all the public servants, regardless of their political affiliations, to unite in leading and serving their constituents in the next three years starting July 1.

The new governor also presented his program of services through “The People’s Agenda 10” with focus on health, quality education for the youth, livelihood for every Bulakenyo, agriculture, proactive social services, progressive projects for every town, tourism, nature and environment, peace and order, and good and honest governance.

“Ito po ang ating layuning pangkaunlaran. Tayo ay magpapatuloy sa nasimulang programang pangkaunlaran at palalawakin ito. Ang aking pangarap ay magandang bunga ang madala sa hapag ng bawat pamilyang Bulakenyo.

Ang kailangan natin ay hindi sa numero lamang bagkus ay kaunlarang nadarama ng bawat isa, maging ng mga maralita sa ating lipunan (This is our goal for development. We will continue the development program that we began and expand it. My dream is to bring good results to the table of every Bulakenyo family. We need not only numbers but progress and development that can be felt by everyone, even the poor ones in our society),” Fernando said.

The new governor also enumerated some of the projects they have lined up that are seen to benefit the Bulakenyos -- the Bulacan Bulk Water Supply, international airport, comprehensive flood control projects, railway system, the Metro Rail Transit - 7, media hub, Bulacan techno hubs, and other infrastructure projects that will ensure jobs and employment for Bulakenyos.

Aside from Fernando, others who took their oath are Alvarado, representatives of the five congressional districts of Bulacan -- Jonathan Sy-Alvarado (1st District); Apol Pancho (2nd District); Lorna Silverio (3rd District); Henry Villarica (4th District); and Rida Robes (Lone District of City of San Jose del Monte), board members, and mayors, vice mayors and Sanggunian members of the province's 23 towns and three cities. (PNA)
