After participating in the Joint Government-Private Sector Marketing Mission in Guam recently, Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. has initiated the creation of a governing body that will handle all concerns in relation to the Guam project.

This is in connection with Mayor Gordon’s efforts to corner for Olongapeños the some 20,000 jobs that will be created with the impending transfer of the US military facility in Okinawa, Japan to Guam.

The Executive Order No. 25 Series of 2009 entitled “Creation of Olongapo City Task Force Guam” was signed and approved by Gordon.

The said task force will coordinate and make representations for the city to ensure the success of the Marketing Mission as well as the sister-city relationship with Guam.

Task Force Guam is composed of City Councilor Edwin J. Piano as Chairman, Executive Assistant Ronnie Lopez as Vice-Chairman. Members include Honorio Gomez from Olongapo City Mall, Evelyn Delos Santos from Public Employment Services Office (PESO), Market Master Damian Delos Santos of the Olongapo City Public Market and Jaime L. Mendoza, a consultant from the Mayor’s Office.

According to Gordon, “Task Force Guam is expected to represent Olongapo City and recommend action plans that are geared towards forging a stronger relationship with Guam.”

“Kailangan nating tutukan ang pagtatatag ng isang sister-city relationship upang maging mas epektibo ang pakikipag-ugnayan natin sa Guam. This will definitely help improve tourism and open a variety of business and employment opportunities for both cities,” he added.

The task force is also in charge of submitting proposals and periodic reports to the city government and provide the public updates on the developments of the Guam project. PAO - CHAY
