Mayor Leonardia: I will listen to barangays’ concerns


Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia reminded newly-elected barangay officials that they must do their part in order to achieve inclusive growth.

The Bacolod politiko made the remark during the oath-taking ceremony of the city’s new barangay officials.

Leonardia vowed to listen to the barangay officials concerns and suggestions.

“We have a City Development Council and we will have many other venues in the future where we can sit together. When we do the final plans for Bacolod, we promise we will seek your suggestions, we will seek your advice, we will seek your guidance,” he said.

“We can make Bacolod’s growth and prosperity complete only if we can have the participation and leadership of our barangay officials. That is what I’m appealing to you,” Leonardia added.
