“Leadership is action, not a position.” A line which most of our leaders forget.
Recently, the Municipality of Pozorrubio has achieved it vision to become one of the First Class Municipalities in the Philippines. Kudos to the past and present administration and to all the Pozorrubians! The journey does not end there. Our town is starting again in its dream to become a City.
Much have been accomplished by our able local government unit. Projects are found everywhere in the vicinity. Some are still going on. One of these on-going projects is the construction of bridge along the river in Barangay Malasin. This project, if totally materialized, will connect the overseas barangays of Bantugan, Nantangalan, Maambal, Haway and Castaño to the town. For me, it favors the people in the said barangays for the reason that it vanishes the risk, fear and trauma of crossing the river whenever there is typhoon, heavy rains that cause the fluctuating level of water. It is their time to say “goodbye” to “balsa”. It is also advantageous to them in particular and to the municipality in general for it surely transports the increasing capita income of the barrios to the town. For me, almost a dream came true. After those sweet promises given by the aspiring political candidates running for a position in the local government during the campaign and election period. At last! Those promises initially turned into a reality.
