Gov. Delta extends Capitol programs to brgys

City of San Fernando, Pampanga – True to his words of bringing Capitol closer to the people, Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda led the launch of the “Kapitolyo sa Barangay: Serbisyu ning Probinsiya, Lalapit Kekayu” program in the municipalities of Floridablanca and Mexico on Friday, May 10.

The governor took the lead in spearheading a series of barangay consultations aimed at identifying pressing community needs, in a bid to make Capitol programs more accessible to the grassroots. The consultations addressed key topics such as support for local farmers, public health concerns, sanitation and hygiene, the necessity for potable water systems, waterway siltation, and basic infrastructure needs.

“Bilang isang lider, naniniwala ako na tayo mismo ang kailangang bumaba para alamin ang mga pangangailangan ng mga tao. Buo nilang ibinigay ang tiwala nila sa atin, kaya buo rin dapat ang serbisyong ibabalik natin,” said Gov. Delta, stressing the importance of giving back to communities.

He also urged the attendees to avail of the Alagang Nanay Preventive Healthcare Program.

“Anuman po ang kailangan ninyo, lalo na sa aspetong pangkalusugan, lumapit lang po kayo sa mga opisyal ninyo sa barangay para madala po nila kayo sa amin,” he added.

Through the joint collaboration of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO), Provincial Treasurer’s Office (PTO), General Services Office (GSO), and Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO), a total of 3,300 people from Barangays Valdez, Mabical, Solib, San Antonio, Dampe, Sto. Rosario, Gutad, Consuelo and Calantas in Floridablanca, and 928 from Sto. Cristo and Parian in Mexico benefitted from the program. Each received financial assistance and a food pack, containing five (5) kilograms of rice and canned goods.

“Pasalamat ke pung maragul keng gagawan nang Gov. Delta uling maragul ya pung saup kekaming memalen keti Floridablanca. Patse atin pung masakit, lumapit ke kaya, keng kailangan mi keng panulu, keng ospital, eke pu mipapakarine.
