Lingayen, Pangasinan—Gov. Ramon V. Guico III said that 2024 promises to be a busy and exciting year for Pangasinan as major projects aligned with the province’s vision will be implemented this year.
Looking back at the province’s significant milestones in the past years, the governor said that the first salt harvest in December last year proved to be worth mentioning.
The governor also stated that there is yet another gigantic project to be implemented in partnership with some private sectors. Said project will address flooding problems at the Capitol, Lingayen, Binmaley, and hopefully even in the City of Dagupan, at zero expense to the province.
“I think we will be designing an agreement on that sooner than we expect. Of course, it’s a combination of some engineering and planning on our part,” the governor said.
Moreover, Gov. Guico thanked the Sangguniang Panlalawigan for approving resolutions, ordinances, and authorizations that were given to him.
Guico shared that, unknown to many, his administration was still working while many were already having their Christmas Party, as there was still a lot of work needing to be done before the end of 2023.
In his message, the governor further added that Provincial Administrator Melicio Patague II and Provincial Health Officer Ana de Guzman spearheaded the conduct of interviews on January 2 to fill up a lot of needed positions, expertise, and specializations at the provincial hospitals.
The governor believes that out of the more than six thousand employees who were there for the longest time, they have the potential to help and become an asset to the provincial organization.
‘Time is of the essence,’ the governor said as he urged everyone to work harder and be more motivated. (Chona C. Bugayong/PIMRO)
