Reinforcing the Provincial Government's initiative for inclusive growth, Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc promised to provide adequate assistance to Local Government Units (LGUs) in the province during a series of consultative meetings yesterday, at the municipalities of Adams, Pagudpud, and Dumalneg.

On his statement, Governor Manotoc assured the participants of his full support to aid problems and concerns of every municipality down to the grassroots:

"Una sa lahat, taos-puso ang aking pasasalamat sa inyong suporta noong nakaraang eleksiyon. Kaya po ako nandito ngayon upang ako naman ang makinig sa inyo. Gagawin po namin sa Provincial Government ang aming makakaya upang matugunan ang mga pangangailangan ng inyong komunidad, sa tulong ng LGU," he stated.

The meeting was attended and participated by municipal and barangay officials, headed by the mayors and barangay captains, department heads, representatives from government and non-government organizations, and other stakeholders.

Meanwhile, Mayor Rafael Benemerito of Pagudpud is thankful for the Governor's efforts in personally reaching out every LGU in the province, saying, "Sobra kaming nagpapasalamat kay Governor Manotoc dahil siya mismo ang bumisita upang marinig at bigyang-pansin ang ating mga problema at pangangailangan dito sa bayan ng Pagudpud. Sana ay hindi ito ang una at huling pagkakataon na makaharap namin siya."

Similar problems raised by concerned groups from the three municipalities are issues on farming; improvement of farm-to-market roads; construction of barangay halls and day care centers; and request for provision of learning materials and facilities to schools, among others.

The second day of consultative meeting is scheduled today at the Municipality of Piddig and Municipality of Sarrat.
