Mayor Paulino swears into office all incoming village officials of Olongapo
Olongapo City Mayor Rolen C. Paulino has administered the oath of office of 243 newly-elected Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataang (BSK) officials of the city.
The oath-taking ceremony was held at Subic Bay Travelers Hotel, Subic Bay Freeport Zone on June 12.
Paulino congratulated the new set of BSK officials.
“The people have spoken. You are all chosen by your people,” he said.
Melissa Nipal of the Olongapo City Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) urged the BSK officials to brace themselves and expect that their duties will become harder.
But Nipal, who witnessed the ceremony said that they should not worry because the DILG will continuously provide more trainings to capacitate them and more programs for the improvement of the barangays.
All 17 barangay captains of Olongapo took their oath before Paulino during the Independence Day celebration at Rizal Triangle before participating in the mass oath taking for all the village chiefs in Central Luzon administered by President Rodrigo Duterte at Asean Convention Center, Clark Freeport Zone.
