Mayor Sara Duterte brings meet-ang-greet to Tacurong

Amid her tight itinerary, Davao City Mayor Sara ‘Inday’ Duterte-Carpio managed to sneak in Tacurong City to her long list of engagements to attend an intimate meet-and-greet with the local officials of the city government, January 07, 2021.
Clad in a green T-shirt, Inday Sara appeared before a limited number of dignitaries including City Mayor Lino O. Montilla, City Vice Mayor Lalaine J. Montilla, City Councilor Lina O. Montilla – to whom Mayor Sara shares a bond with since 2010–, the rest of the Sangguniang Panlungsod, and the 20 punong barangays of Tacurong at The Palm Pavilion in Brgy. Calean.
In his message, Mayor Lino uttered his warm reception of Mayor Sara for gracing Tacurong, as well as his profuse gratitude to the latter for her numerous assistances to the city over the years – one being the provision of COVID-19 Test Kits which was personally initiated by Mayor Sara through a phone call with the late City Mayor Angelo “Roncal” O. Montilla during the onset of the pandemic 2 years ago.
Further, Councilor Lina also took the podium to articulate her initial encounter with Mayor Sara during her first-timer stint in the League of Cities of the Philippines back in 2010.
In Councilor Lina’s account, as a novice Local Chief Executive (LCE) then, she took Mayor Sara as an epitome of a true public servant and even considers her as a mentor even though the former’s older than Mayor Inday.
Moreover, the then Mayor Lina also cited Mayor Sara as her source of strategies and implementations in alleviating the difficulties of Tacurong during her tenure as the city’s LCE for 9 years.
All of these lauds towards Mayor Sara were gratefully reciprocated as she herself also expressed her appreciation to the City Government of Tacurong for gracing her meet-and-greet.
Mayor Sara conveyed that all her support to Tacurong ever since are her means of lifting other nearby cities and municipalities in Mindanao and Tacurong is just one of the many.
She also reminded everyone to continue loving the nation by following through the government’s initiatives.
Present also to the simple gathering were former Senator Jinggoy Estrada and Davao Occidental Governor Claude Baustista.
Former Mayor Helen Latog of Esperanza along with the other LCEs and vice mayors of some of the Sultan Kudarat municipalities – Mayor Maritess Pallasigue of Isulan, Mayor Rolando Garcia of Kalamansig, and Mayor Frederick Celestial of Lebak – have also joined the meet-and-greet.
Prior to the gathering, Mayor Inday and her team dined in for a lunch at Mama’s Love restaurant, a proof that the public servant has not only grown fond of the officials, the Montillas per se, but also of the City of Goodwill. (DEC, LGUTac-Information)

Tacurong Women Achievers 2021 – Frontliner Edition recognized

Lauded for their indomitable spirit of service amid the COVID-19 crisis, 3 women frontliners, each representing a sector, were awarded as this year’s Tacurong Women Achievers by the City of Tacurong Council for the Development of Women (CTCDW) and LGU-Tacurong, December 15, 2021, at Angel’s Food and Palomado Speech Complex.

From the group of Barangay Peacekeeping Action Team (BPAT), Amie G. Malinao of Brgy. Buenaflor emerged as one of the Frontliner Women Achievers, commended on how she balanced her day-to-day duties from being a wife to being a mother of 7 offspring to rendering volunteer work as a BPAT in their barangay especially during the pandemic.

Lily L. Porcal, a Daycare Worker from Upper Katungal was also acknowledged for the distinction of having served as a teacher for 33 years. Lily, at 70 years old, still managed to bring fun and educational activities to her pupils.

Completing the set of awardees, a Barangay Health Worker (BHW) from New Isabela, Eillien A. Cordova, was also honored. Despite being an elder at risk of COVID, Lily braved the dangers of the virus just to deliver her duties as BHW.

Each of the 3 Women Achievers took home a Plaque of Recognition, 10 thousand cash, one 25-kilo sack of rice, a bouquet, and a cake.

To further applaud the winners, as well as the other women in the venue, City Councilor Lina O. Montilla articulated her message of uplifting her fellows.

Councilor Lina recalled her first time running for the mayoralty post in 2010 and being one of 3 female candidates that time, her dissenters critically persuade the masses to not vote for her because “she is a woman” – a belief Councilor Lina strongly disagreed with.

According to her, the weight of one’s capability is not determined by gender.

11 years later, Lina completed her 3 terms as a mayor and is now back as a councilor.

Moreover, City Vice Mayor Lalaine J. Montilla also stressed that other than the women owning their womanhood and the strength that comes with it, the success of each endeavor also lies with the unity that they can harness together.

This is the third time the LGU and CTCDW have recognized Women Achievers in Tacurong on different occasions – the first one being in December 2020 for the marginalized women and the second instance was last March 2021 for the Most Functional Violence Against Women (VAW) Desk In-Charge.
