Mayor Lazatin wants a drug-free City Hall

ANGELES CITY — The city government under the leadership of Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. will conduct a surprise drug testing on all its employees. 

This is will be implemented also in accordance with the existing Civil Service Commission regulations. 

“On my second term, we will ensure that the city hall will be drug-free,” Lazatin underscored. 

According to Lazatin, those who will yield positive will undergo rehabilitation. 

This initiative, Lazatin said, will reduce the demand for illegal drugs and at the same time, promote a drug-free workplace and reformation. 

It can be recalled that it is under the watch of Lazatin that the Balay Silangan reformation center was established, which Lazatin said will be expanded in his second term. 

The center is being supervised by his Chief Adviser, IC Calaguas. 

The Balay Silangan Reformation Center is a brainchild of former Director General Aaron Aquino of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to reform illegal drug offenders.
