Bongat stresses faith in Nagueños, bares triumphs

By Jason B. Neola

NAGA CITY — Stressing his faith in Nagueños that he said never wanes in spirit to bring out the best in Team Naga, Mayor John G. Bongat asked his constituents to continue to join him in the journey towards his third and final term in office.

First elected to the post in 2010, Bongat, whose term as city mayor here will end in 2019, pleaded before the jampacked People’s Mall on Tuesday, June 13, 2017, for the public’s all-out support to his administration: “In this last term of mine, I appeal to you to give it your all. “Itao na nindo an gabos na suporta asin tiwala na hinahagad ko para sa padagos na marikas na pag-uswag kan satuyang ciudad.”

The mayor recounted the days when he was city councilor in 2001 up to the time he was elected city mayor. He said he did his best during those days because he believes that his constituents deserve no less.

“You have proven to be Team Naga’s reliable partners through the years, never waning in support to bring out the best in us. My first and second terms have been a sweep in our favor, phenomenal as it has been, the so-called Ubos kun ubos, Gabos kun gabos,” he said.

2017 Mayoral awardees to be announced this week

MAYOR John G. Bongat is set to announce this week the successful nominees to this year’s prestigious Mayoral Awards.

Inside sources said at least 32 from 44 30 nominees received by the Mayoral Awards Committee have made it to the elite list of successful nominees by the Board of Judges led by Dr. Elna N. Chia, M.D.

The committee said it took the Board of Judges more than a month to validate, evaluate and finally choose the best among them for conferment by the city mayor.

The mayoral awards and the annual search for outstanding citizens of Naga is one of the highlight activities of the city’s annual celebration of its charter day on June 18. Conferment of the awards, however, will be held on June 17, on the eve of the city’s charter day, at Avenue Convention Plaza.
