City Legal Officer and Olongapo City’s Resident Ombudsman Atty. Angelito Orozco has been recognized as ‘Outstanding Resident Ombudsman’ during the 1st National Convention of Resident Ombudsmen sa Baguio City.

“To date, resident ombudsmen (ROs) all over the country number 450 representing various government agencies, GOCCs and Local Government Units. Consistent with Mayor James ‘Bong’ Gordon Jr.’s exhortation of ‘Fighting for Excellence’ and with his generous support, we have been recognized for our efforts to provide efficient public service and address bureaucratic ills,” Orozco said.

“Indeed, without the genuine encouragement and pro-active support of the Hon. Mayor, such feats wouldn’t have been accomplished by this humble representative—although there are still many works to be done,” added Orozco.

The1st National Convention of Resident Ombudsmen aims “To strengthen the Office of the Ombudsman’s capability to render public service, prevent corruption and conduct immediate investigation on complaints against officials and employees.”

Hon. Tanodbayan Ma. Merceditas N. Gutierrez and Deputy Ombudsmen for Luzon Hon. Victor Fernandez graced the ceremonies.

It is the RO’s duty to assist the public in facilitating transactions in a particular government agency, according to the statement by the Office of the Ombudsman.

The Office of the Ombudsman also tasks ROs to “study study systems and procedures vulnerable to corruption and make recommendations to improve them; report anomalies, irregular acts, unethical conduct or illegal activities committed by the officials and employees of the office where they are assigned and aid in the gathering of evidence in the investigation of the same.”

The three-day convention was held at the Hotel Supreme in Baguio City
