Arroyo calls on councilors to support national gov't programs

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo today urged Luzon’s councilors

to support the Charter Change, lead an energy conservation program, initiate livelihood project and cooperate with policemen in the promotion of peace and order.

She asked the Philippine Councilors League (PCL) members who attended the 3-day and 6th Luzon Island Congress held at this freeport on May 24-26, 2006.

The President said that through municipal legislation they (councilors) could initiate livelihood projects and while attending to such projects they campaign for a change of the Charter which is already outmoded.

The councilors are the conduit of government in drawing out people’s cooperation in the development efforts and leading people’s access to the benefits from reforms. Their support to the Charter Change is indispensable since the present political system hinders the speedy implementation of government services.

To solidify the country’s independence from oil, she enjoined the councilors to promote the use of oil substitutes such as ethanol, cocodiesel and biofuel. She suggested that they cause for the planting of Jethropa in vacant areas in their respective municipalities because when processed this can be diesel substitute.

Arroyo also reminded the delegates not to forget cooperating with police officers assigned in their area of jurisdiction and keep a watchful eye over government projects to safeguard them from corruption.

After her speaking engagement with the members of Sanguniang Bayan all over Luzon, the President inspected the fourteen (14) luxury vehicles and other types from Korea, Japan and other countries which were seized by the customs and SBMA operatives after discovering that supporting document were spurious.

These smuggled cars worth P20 M are now impounded at the Naval Supply Depot Container Yard inside Subic Bay Freeport. (PIA Zambales)
