On 9th cityhood anniv, Garbo cites Mabalacat’s story of success, perseverance
Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo described the city’s history as “a narrative of success and perseverance” during the celebration of its 9th Charter Day anniversary on Wednesday at the City Hall.
“My aspiration for the highest post in the local government back then was a bold attempt to break the years-long monotony in Mabalacat City,” he said.
“As I recall, I even compared the situation of our city to a ‘seed in the dark,’ yearning for sunlight for it to grow and prosper,” the mayor said in his speech.
“As we celebrate our 9th anniversary as a full-fledged city, we take into account all our shared dreams and our collective efforts towards the attainment and the safeguarding of what we have founded,” Garbo said.
Addressing Mabalacat residents, he said: “Mabalaqueños, malaking bahagi po ng aking pagbuo sa isang Bagong Mabalacat ang inyong partisipasyon. Masaya po ako dahil naging katuwang ko po kayong lahat sa naging biyahe nating ito.”
The cityhood anniversary’s theme was “Continue Our Lucky Streak.”
“May our cityhood anniversary remind us the essence of camaraderie, hope, and perseverance, especially in these trying times, for these shall illuminate our path for a brighter future ahead,” Garbo said.
