Agenda of Vice Mayor Ahrdail G. Baldo:
The Sangguniang Bayan under my leadership will be proactive, its legislative agenda always in anticipation of the municipality’s ever changing needs and vast potentials for growth.
As expected, the municipal councillors will be responding with characteristic zeal, skilfully stretching, at times, the boundaries of legislative and executiveprivileges. Such a set-up has demonstrated to be anadvantage for the Camaliguenos inasmuch as the Sangguniang Bayan endeavors to go well beyond the confines of the session hall to serve its constituencies.
The local legislators should take to heart the principle of shared responsibility as will be espoused by the municipal mayor. Thus, on top of the legislative work, we should be actively involved in a number of development programs and projects to be undertaken by this local government.
My priorities are:
- Urban development and socialized housing;
- Labor, employment, livelihood through cooperative and enterprise development;
- Environment, disaster risk reduction and management, climate change adaptation, and land use; public utilities;
- Women and family; youth and sports development;
- Culture and heritage;
- Public health and safety;
- Agriculture, trade, business and industry;
- Tourism and community relations;
- Barangay development.
The Municipality of Camalig at present faces the challenge of attaining progress and development in the light of its proximity to nearby urban growth center, Legazpi City; presence of industrial facility, the Mayon Cement Plant; proposed establishment of International Airport at the Municipality of Daraga; proposed Rehabilitation of PNR Service from Makati City to Sorsogon Province; implementation of Bicol River Basin Development Program; Guicadale Project; INfRES FMR Project, DA Assisted Projects and other development programs.
