Allacapan Vice Mayor to donate salary for relief assistance
TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan, April 8 (PIA)- – -The vice mayor of Allacapan town in this province had committed to donate her salary amounting to P1.35 million to the 27 barangays as a relief assistance during the Enhanced Community Quarantine.
In a post of the Municipal Government of Allacapan official Facebook page, the donation was a commitment of both Mayor Harry Florida and Vice Mayor Yvonne Florida for the benefit of their constituents especially those severely affected in the municipality.
Earlier, the vice mayor already committed to waive her salary for the construction of barangay parks so that each barangay will have its own park for the children.
However, due to the effects of COVID-19 scare in the country, she instead realigned the amount as an additional assistance to the 27 barangays of the municipality where each barangay will receive P50,000.
On the other hand, the move of the local officials gained ground from the public especially on social media.
“God Bless you both Mayor and VM Florida and your family. More blessing to come. Thanks po for always sharing,” said Lily Aglipay.
Alma Alonzo also said, “Thank you Vice Mayor and all donors ‘tay kunadan our service is beyond our capacity now kuna daguiti politiko ken agserserbi a dadduma and one is to sacrifice what we have that is extra or what our heart dictating to give. panagtitinnulong tayo kadaytoy nga sakit a Pandemic COVID 19 ti number one a makita in action.” (MDCT/PIA-2)
