Mayor Labella attends DILG seminar in Manila


Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella is in Manila to attend the three-day governance orientation, The Freeman reported.

“Labella is not new to public service being a long-time politician. But he is still willing to learn how to properly govern the Cebu City government for the interest and benefit of the people. It shows his willingness and he has the heart to serve the public,” said Department of the Interior and Local Government acting city director Ian Kenneth Lucero.

Lucero said the Local Government Academy, the department’s training, spearheaded the seminar, which kicks off today and will conclude Friday.

The seminar, he added, aims to improve the capacities of newly-elected officials to prepare them for their administrative and governance responsibilities, as well as guide them in their first 100 days in office.

“They will be oriented on their functions, powers, as well the programs of the government,” the DILF official said.
