If one is in the right connection, securing equipment for the general welfare of its constituent is not impossible. This was the case of Barangay Poblacion in Castilla town which has adapted the Bagong Poblacion tag to erase the sleepy connotation of the barangay.
According to Kagawad Ruel Cal-Ortiz, the grant of the service vehicle was realized because Chairman Alex Sotto is a close associate of the key people of Congressman Jose Teves Jr. of TGP Partylist.
The reasonableness for the need of a multi-role service vehicle, an emergency can be acted immediately.
The service vehicle was formally received by the barangay officials today, July 22 from the representatives of the Partylist.
Barangay Poblacion before was the seat of the town but its remote location prompted municipal officials to transfer the seat of power in Barangay Cumadcad.
After the relocation Poblacion’s progress was at standstill. The road network saddled commuters, especially with medical conditions. As if
not a change is coming until a new leadership re-invented the potential of the barangay..
Progress becomes a byword, programs to empower the populace were in-placed, inching closer for importance not because of its 36,000 voters but of the concerted efforts of its officials headed Alex Sotto and the acceptance of the people as stakeholders in developing their community as a community where their children can live progressively.
