Gov. Imee to receive Outstanding Governorship Award for second time


Mar. 16, 2016 ...

Recognizing again her efficient and effective leadership as Governor of Ilocos Norte for the past six years, Superbrands Marketing Inc. (SMI) will honor Gov. Imee R. Marcos as an Outstanding Governorship Awardee on March 30, 2016.

SMI Philippines is an award-giving body engaged in consumer and service products, involved also in assessing the delivery of quality governance throughout the country. Recipients of the Outstanding Governorship Award are governors who demonstrate collective success and remarkable achievements as public servants.

This marks Gov. Imee's second citation as an Outstanding Governor, having been bestowed the same award last October 28, 2015, for "ensuring the rapid and inclusive development of the province" through the provincial vision, "Pasingkedan ti Kinatan-ok ni Ilocano!" (Together, we can make Ilocos Norte great again!)

In addition to excellence in leadership, service delivery, and programs for inclusive growth, Gov. Imee also upholds the Ilocano culture of timpuyog, which she defines as "the endless network of communities making up the province━Ilocanos everywhere throughout the country and the world, ready to help and build together."

Also recognized from the province are Vice Gov. Eugenio Angelo M. Barba, Laoag City Mayor Michael V. Fariñas and Bacarra Vice Mayor Jonathan Blas P. Ramit, who will each receive the Outstanding Local Legislator Award.
