EdPam vows ‘world-class governance’

ANGELES CITY – Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan yesterday vowed of a continued “world-class governance and leadership” even as he warned against a “backslide to the days of unbridled patronage politics.”
Pamintuan made the statement during a luncheon speech before members of the Rotary Club of Angeles City at a restaurant in downtown Angeles.
He said the numerous awards given to him and the city, including his ranking as 8th of 10 top World Mayors for 2012 given by the City Mayors Foundation, an international organization monitoring the performance of mayors of major cities in the world, have only made him work harder to live up to the accolades and expectations of the Angeleños and the award-giving bodies.
He was also earlier cited by Superbrands International as one of the seven best mayors in the Philippines.
Because of the awards, he said “people are becoming curious of what we have done and how we did it, that institutions like Superbrands International and the City Mayors Foundation which are both based in the United Kingdom have noticed of our small city and its humble mayor.”
Pamintuan also thanked the business sector for expressing confidence in his administration as reflected in a recent survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS), where Angeles City scored the lowest in perception of business establishments on existence of public corruption.
He said the 27 percent scored by Angeles City dragged down the national averages, resulting in lower perception of public corruption by business establishments on a national level.
Pamintuan, however, lamented that his political battle against former ally first district Representative Carmelo “Tarzan” Lazatin has degenerated to the “inane and ridiculous.”
“It seems not all Angelenos are happy about these,” he lamented.
“There are still those who are too cynical and even crab-minded, that they went to the extent of writing derogatory letters to the award giving bodies against me, and against Angeles City. I was later told that one of the award-giving groups, the Superbrands International, wrote them a curt answer: ‘Please do not drag us to your political grudge,’ or something to that effect,” he added.
He said: “The slings and arrows coming from the direction of the jungle at Telabastagan, City of San Fernando have been unceasing. The charges have ranged from the inane to the ridiculous. I have been forced to engage them tit for tat sometimes, although I would rather that I be allowed to continue on delivering on my commitments up to the last day of my term.”
“The truth of the matter is that they have degenerated to the disgusting – manufacturing issues, names, signatures and documents just to get media mileage,” he added.
Pamintuan also referred to a letter purportedly coming from the Metro Angeles Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MACCI) questioning the increase of the city budget. But he said that when he called up the signatories, most of them denied having signed the letter.
He said the letter reflected an earlier statement made by Lazatin during a radio interview. ●Charlene Cayabyab
