BRGY. EAST BAJAC-BAJAC 2009 LTIA AWARDEE
Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. took with great pride and pleasure the good news from Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region III Director Renato L. Brion that Barangay East Bajac-Bajac of Olongapo City has won the 2009 Lupong Tagapamayapa Incentive National Awards (LTIA) for Highly Urbanized Cities Category.
‘’Ang pagkakapanalo ng Brgy. East Bajac-Bajac ay hindi lamang panalo ng iisang barangay kundi ito ay panalo ng buong Olongapo. It’s getting to be a good habit,’’ enthused Mayor Bong Gordon.
Mayor Gordon, together with Olongapo First Lady and Zambales Vice Gov. Anne Gordon and East Bajac-Bajac Brgy. Capt. and Lupon Chairwoman Filipina A. Tablan, will personally accept the award and cash incentive on June 16, 2010 at the Rizal Hall, Malacanang.
It can be recalled that on January 2010, Brgy. East Bajac-Bajac has accepted the LTIA Regional Award at the LTIA Regional Office in Maimpis, San Fernando, Pampanga which paved the way for our very own barangay to represent Olongapo City in the national level.
‘’Last time ay ang Barangay Baretto na naging Hall of Famer pa ang nanalo na sinundan ng Brgy. East Tapinac at ngayon ay ang Brgy. East Bajac-Bajac na sana ay maging Hall of Famer rin sa buong bansa at maging ang iba pang mga barangay sa lungsod ay sumunod na rin na makatanggap ng LTIA award,’’ Mayor Bong Gordon said.
The LTIA awards committee based the selection of the winner by efficiency in operations, effectiveness in implementing justice at the barangay level and how fast the barangay process can resolve neighborhood disputes fairly.
