“Kinikilala namin ang napakahalagang suporta at kontribusyon ni Mayor Edwin Santiago sa mga matagumpay na programa, proyekto, at adhikain ng aming ahensya.”
This was what the Civil Service Commission (CSC) Regional Office III remarked as it recognizes Mayor Edwin “EdSa” Santiago as one of its “top partner individuals” in the whole of Central Luzon.
During the CSC’s Honor Awards Program 2018 held at The Orchid Gardens, City of San Fernando, some agency officials, government employees, and local chief executives, including Santiago, were recognized after having displayed “outstanding work performance” in the government service.
Alongside Santiago are Dr. Imelda Macaspac, Division School Superintendent and Fe Rosalinda Caylao, Pampanga High School Principal.
Meanwhile, the CSC Regional Pagasa Award was also conferred to group and individuals, with “outstanding contribution/s resulting from an idea or performance that directly benefits more than one department of the government,” CSC stated.
For the group category, one of the recipients is the city’s Early Childhood Care and Development or ECCD-Division Child Development Teachers and Supervisors Circle, headed by Aileen Villanueva, OIC- City Social Welfare and Development Office and Project Development Officer and Alicia Dungca, City Day Care Worker.
“This award is an affirmation that our ECCD management traverses a right track. We are inspired to do more for our children, and we are also inspired to do more because Mayor ‘EdSa’ has exceptional leadership that guides us,” expressed Villanueva.
For his part, Santiago expressed that it has always been a collective duty between the city government and the CSC to have a harmonious relationship.
“Ang ‘partner’ ay maaaring maihalintulad sa ‘katuwang’, ‘kasama’, o ‘kapareha’. Marami pang maaaring maging kasingkahulugan ng salitang iyan. Pero para sa ating syudad at sa CSC, ang ‘partner ay pagtatrabaho ng maayos para sa kapakanan ng buong komunidad,” said Santiago.
Meanwhile, the said awards were officially presented to CSF-LGU officials and employees during September 17’s flag raising ceremony at the City Hall.
