Garbo picked as League of Cities’ focal person for health
Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo was elected as the new focal person for health of the League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) during its 69th general assembly in Quezon City on July 21.
The mayor welcomed his new position in the LCP and revealed that he was able to speak with President Bongbong Marcos Jr. as he was being favored for the role for his outstanding performance in Mabalacat amid the pandemic.
“I accept this position with pride as it is also a validation of our work and efforts in our city to continue what we are doing to mitigate the virus,” he said.
“We are still in a pandemic and we are all trying to recover from its effects – from our local economy to tourism, while at the same time trying to manage the cases within our communities,” said Garbo.
“We will keep going so we can continue to lead by example,” he added.
Garbo successfully managed the COVID-19 Response Integrated System (CRIS) program in Mabalacat City for its effective implementation which earned various recognition including the highest overall vaccine utilization rate in Central Luzon.
Through the CRIS program, Mabalacat was also recognized as the first in Region 3 to implement its paperless system in all its vaccination sites through the Department of Information and Communications Technology’s vaccine administration system.
Mabalacat also used its existing digital hubs that are located strategically across the city for internet learning to ensure adequate and reliable connectivity.
