Councilor Ed Piano, Outstanding Councilor of the Philippines

Olongapo’s three-termer Councilor, Edwin Piano, has been recognized as The Outstanding Councilor of the Philippines (TOCP) by the Junior Chamber International Philippines and Senator Edgardo Angara at the Awarding Ceremonies held during the Philippine Councilor’s League End Term Conference at the Cebu International Convention Center, Cebu City last March 12, 2010.

This, after beating all his contenders at the region and at the national levels with his exemplary track record as a legislator committed to uplift the sectors of labor , employment, technical education, telecommunications and information technology.

“We are very proud of Councilor Piano’s success. This award only proves that the constituents have been right in choosing him as one of their representatives in the City Council, ” said Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.

Councilor Piano, a former Subic Bay employee and one of the thousands of volunteers who protected and preserved the former Subic Naval Base under the leadership of Senator Richard Gordon, was first elected city councilor in 2001 and have authored and co-authored the highest number of significant resolutions and ordinances in the city council to date.

The career of Councilor EDWIN J. PIANO can be described as a career characterized by hard work, legislative savvy and selfless dedication to public service. It is a shining example of how a Councilor’s innovativeness and practical skills can be successfully parlayed into the concrete enhancement of the lives of his constituents and the progress of his community and country.

Believing that a councilor’s duties to the people go beyond mere legislative work, Mr. Piano voluntarily assumed other responsibilities that have a direct impact on the welfare of the community. He formally organized and led thousands of volunteers in rendering a wide range of community services. He set up and now heads the Olongapo Skills Development and Employment Center, while he is one of the pillars of the Subic Bay Information and Communications Technology Council. Mr. Piano is also very active in the scouting movement in Olongapo City.

The greatest accomplishment of Councilor Edwin Piano is his effective use of his legislative sagacity and skills in crafting timely and necessary laws that respond to the needs of the community; and his willingness to work even beyond the confines of the legislative halls, without any compensation, to make sure that these laws make their intended positive impact on the lives of the people. This accomplishment aptly exemplifies the line in the JCI Creed that states, “That government should be of laws rather than of men, and that service to humanity is the best work of life.” http://tocp-jci.blogspot.com/
