help in dev’t of Bacolod


When the public-private sector work together, so much can be done for the city and its people, Bacolod Congressman-elect and Mayor Evelio said about those who were given the Ang Banwahanon Award at the ceremonies held last night at the grand lobby of the Bacolod City Government Center.

“In Bacolod, we have been blessed so that over the years, it was never a solo flight for government in attending to the needs and demands of our people,” Leonardia said.

The Ang Banwahanon Award, a prestigious honor given to citizens of Bacolod in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the city, was conferred on Fe Legaspi-Remitio and businessman Ben Ortega.moremoremore
