QUEZON CITY – The Quezon City government has vowed to establish its own government school to provide the best education to the city’s future leaders, a report by Manila Standard said.
“We are planning on putting up the Manuel Luis Quezon School of Government where we can mentor our youth leaders, for them to enhance their skills not only on theories about governance but also on the practical use of the knowledge they have learned,” Belmonte said.
Honing young leaders is not an easy feat; therefore, former and current leaders should contend with this matter hand-in-hand.
“It is a challenge for us to hone our future leaders because it is them who will take over once we retire from the public service. And since it is us who have experienced, and are experiencing the difficulties of being a leader, we should do our best to impart those lessons to others, so they can apply it and bring the best reforms to our city,” she added.
Belmonte cited the need to tap previous barangay officials once the plan materializes.
“I don’t want your experiences and skills go wasted the moment you retire from the public service. That’s why we will call for your participation to teach and share about the practical aspect of leadership and those that are not usually discussed in a theoretical approach,” she said.
Meanwhile, Manila Bulletin reported that four precincts of the Quezon City Police District will purchase computer sets to enhance the administrative services it offer to the people.
This, as the city council passed City Resolution 7491-2018 City Resolution 7491-2018 authorizing Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista to sign deed of donation of computer sets for the police stations in Anonas, Eastwood, Cubao, and Project 4.
The computer sets to be procured will feature intel core i5-4460T, windows 10 home operating system, 8GB DDR4-1600MHz (2 X DIMM slot), 1TB 7200 RPM, DVD RAMBO reader/writer, 23 inches backlit LCD monitor, AVR accutype, USB keyboard and mouse, Dolby speaker and headphone, Microsoft Office 2016, anti-virus, and printer.
It shall be financed by the Office of Councilor Eufemio Lagumbay, who pens the resolution, and will be delivered to the aforementioned police stations.
