Mayor Belen T.

Prior to the opening ceremony, a ‘Unity Walk’ composed of students from public and private schools; government officials, heads and employees; barangay councils, event sponsors and volunteers was held starting at the Dagupan City Transport Terminal up to the Stadia to display Dagupan’s unity in support of the SDG.

“The SDG aims to effect change, fight poverty and achieve progress by year 2030 and ensuring that no one is left behind,” Mayor Fernandez stated.

A highlight of the affair was a multi-stakeholder signing of partnership to symbolize Dagupan’s commitment to achieve the 17 SDGs that are as follows: No Poverty; Zero Hunger; Good Health and Well-Being; Quality Education; Gender Equality; Clean Water and Sanitation; Affordable and Clean Energy; Decent Work and Economic Growth; Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; Reduced Inequalities; Sustainable Cities and Communities; Responsible Consumption and Production; Climate Action; Life Below Water; Life on Land;  Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions; and Partnerships for the Goals.

Allow me to express my delight and my pride to speak to all the newly elected barangay and SK officials in the City of Dagupan.

I am happy because we have concluded probably one of the most peaceful, orderly, and fair elections we have seen in Dagupan. I am happy that our people are happy with the choices. They have spoken and they have spoken convincingly and strongly as they entrust you the welfare of the community for the next two years.

Masasabi ko rin na nakakabilib na makita at basahin ko sa inyo ang inyong panunumpa dahil alam kong sa loob ng dalawang taon, makakatrabaho ko kayong lahat sa ating mga gawain sa barangay. Ako po ay ang pinakamapalad na Mayor ngayon dahil nalalaman kong bawat isa sa inyo ay aking magiging aktibong partner dahil sa tibay ng inyong pagkahalal nalalaman kong kayo ay napili dahil kayo ang pinakamagaling, pinakamahusay at bukod sa lahat, may matibay na paninindigan sa pagmamahal sa lungsod ng Dagupan.

This morning as your formally take your oath, I wish to remind that the  paramount concern of our city government remains to be the unity of the whole city behind the cause of justice and dignity, to lift those who live in conditions of poverty, ignorance, and lack of opportunity, so that together we may form one united political community.

Hinihiling ko sa bawat isa sa inyo na — at marami na po ang personal na nagpunta sa aking tanggapan upang iparating ito — na ang pagkakaisa ay maging iisang adhikain natin dahil sa ating tapat na paniniwala na ang pagkakaisa ay ang unang hakbang upang tayo ay makaraos na dito sa gitna ng problema kung nasaan tayo, especially now were still recovering from the pandemic, sa gitna ng krisis ng ekonomiya, sa gitna ng walang humpay na pag-atake ng illang tao na pabagalin ang ating pag-unlad dahil hindi pa rin nila matanggap ng kinalabasan ng eleksyon ng 2022.

Hindi naman tayo palaaway, hindi naman tayo naghahanap ng gulo. Subalit ginagawa pa rin natin ang ating buong makakaya, na buo ang ating lakas, sa kabila ng pagpapahirap, panghihiya, pambabastos at panggigipit ng iilan tao.  Ang hangad lang natin ay magkaroon ng disenteng buhay para sa ating sarili, para sa ating pamilya, para sa ating lungsod.

The people need our unity… and in doing so, let us always remind that the general welfare is the supreme law.

I ask each of you to journey with me as we continue to transform Dagupan City into the kind of community our people deserves. Lahat ng ating mga plano at mga pangarap ay abot kamoy at maisasakatuparan natin kung nagkakaisa tayo.

As newly elected officials, you are have an invaluable role in achieving this dreams because I HAVE always believed that the barangay system, if properly harnessed, can provide great benefits to the country in molding the desired cultural and social character of Dagupenos, and boosting the engine of growth of our city.

Mataas ang ating inaasahan at tiwala sa lahat ng mga barangay at SK officials na maging epektibo sa pagtupad ng inyong mga tungkulin. Nagbabago na ang pulso ng ating mga kabaleyan sa paglipas ng mga panahon, tayong mga napiling lingkod bayan ay inaasahan makapaghatid ng serbisyo ng mas higit pa sa nakasanayan. Hindi na pupuwede ang puwede. Our people have set up to to the highest standard in the performance of our duties and responsibilities.

The truth we need to do more what is required do. The truth is, much of our responsibilities, though not written in the Local Government Code, is still within our competence to perform. I enjoin all our barangay officials to appreciate all your written powers to enable you to perform your responsibilities successfully.

Please do not forget that the 1991 Local Government Code has vested you with more power than you realize and you possess greater responsibility and accountability.

Exercise your power with fairness, with prudence, with competence, with the highest ethical standards and with utmost fidelity to the people’s trust And the last thing we need in our beloved city is abusive, incompetent and corrupt officials.

Mahalaga ang ating tuloy tuloy na ugnayan sa pagitan ng ating mga barangay and SK councils at ang inyong pamahalaang lungsod dahil naiintindihan naman nating hindi sapat ang resources ninyo sa barangay.

Maaasahan po ninyo ako na ako ay makikipag-usap at makikinig sa bawat isa sa inyo sa inyong mga pangangailangan ng inyong mga nasasakupan.  Bottom line, kung successful tayo sa barangay, all the way up to the city hall, successful tayo. At kung may isang barangay lang ang magkaproblema sa ating city, nasa balita ka na agad. Please let us help each get each other’s backs.

I hope despite the different candidates that we will all have in the past election, you can keep your unity sa Liga ng mga Barangay at sa PEderasyon ng Sangguniang Kabataan because kailangan may kakapitan tayo. Kailangan, anuman ang diperensya natin sa pulitika, pagdating sa Liga at sa SK, pagdating sa kailangan sa barangay, lalo sa mga emergency, we can always tap each other, call each other, and be a text message away.

Huwag tayong bibitaw sa isa’t isa. Kayo ang aking partner sa barangay, kapit kamay tayo upang abutin natin ang ating mga pinakamatayog na pangarap para sa tagumpay ng ating mga plano para sa lungsod ng Dagupan.
