Bong Go gives recognition to barangay workers in Malolos, Bulacan

Sen. Bong Go visited the province of Bulacan on Wednesday, 16 November, where he personally gave recognition to barangay workers in Malolos City

Go acknowledged the hard work and dedication of Bulacan’s barangay workers during the Gawad Galing Barangay event held at Hiyas Convention Center in Malolos City.

In his speech, Go thanked all of the barangay workers for their immeasurable service and for serving as the bridge for Filipinos to the provincial and national government.

“Ikinagagalak ko po maging parte ng 21st Gawad Galing Barangay upang parangalan ang kagalingan at kahusayan ng mga katangi-tanging barangay sa bansa na ginagampanan ang kanilang mga responsibilidad ng buong husay at katapatan,” remarked Go.

“As barangay leaders, you serve as the frontliners of the government. Kayo po ang pinakaunang tinatakbuhan at nilalapitan ng ating mga kababayan sa tuwing sila ay may mga suliranin. Maliban dito, kayo rin po ang unang tagapagpatupad at tagapaghatid ng mga programa at proyekto ng ating gobyerno sa inyong mga komunidad,” he cited.

In line with his commitment to support barangay workers and strengthen the healthcare system of the country, Go filed Senate Bill No. 427 which proposes the provision of allowances and incentives to barangay health workers. If passed into law, a monthly allowance of PhP3,000 will be provided to all barangay health workers and will also be entitled to security of tenure and other benefits and privileges.

Go also recommended that barangay personnel should be provided with compensation comparable with the pay rate of regular government employees.

“Naniniwala po kami ni dating pangulong (Rodrigo) Duterte na katangian ng isang mahusay na bansa at gobyerno ang pagbibigay ng awtonomiya sa mga lokal na komunidad na makakamit lamang sa desentralisasyon ng kapangyarihan sa gobyerno. Ngunit upang maging matagumpay ito, kailangan muna nating i-empower ang ating mga barangay dahil sila ang basic unit of governance sa bansa,” Go stressed.

After the awarding, Go proceeded to Balagtas and personally joined the groundbreaking ceremony of the town’s Super Health Center.
