Three-term PH city mayors and members of the LCP board recognized at the 67th LCP General Assembly


By LCP Secretariat
June 25, 2019 - Taguig City


League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) National President and Angeles City Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan honored his fellow city mayors who have served for three consecutive terms, as well as members of the LCP National Executive Board (NEB) for period 2016-2019, at the Joint 67thNEB Meeting and 67th General Assembly of the LCP at Shangri-La at the Fort in Taguig on 20 June 2019.

The recently concluded event was the last for the outgoing leadership of the official association of Philippine cities before it convenes the newly elected city mayors this July.

 



Being a three-termer mayor himself and the League’s National President for the past three years, Mayor Pamintuan also received a certificate of recognition from Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano, who sits as the Chairperson of the LCP (2016-2019).

At the Fellowship Dinner held after the Assembly, Mayor Pamintuan delivered a ceremonial toast in honor of all 35 city mayors in the country who have served their full three terms.

"Each one of us, whose terms end by the end of this month, has made indelible marks in our respective cities in various ways, in more ways than one—the quality of service to our people, our styles of governance, the infrastructure we built, and many more. […] May I invite all the graduating members of LCP, as well as the NEB officers for 2016 to 2019 who are here this evening, please stand up. Proudly, I implore. Because we did our cities proud," he said.

 



The event was also an opportunity for Mayor Pamintuan to share his administration’s accomplishments before the member cities and officers of the LCP NEB led by Mayor Cayetano.

"The period 2016-2019 was marked by exciting and challenging developments, both national and international, that impacted much to our organization. […] In the face of all of these, we pressed on and we have delivered some substantial results that redound to the benefit of our members. Internally, we have strengthened our organization. We flexed our political muscles and made ourselves heard in various policy fora. We organized and hosted local and international events. We revitalized our members and gave much needed tribute and recognition to our past leaders," he said.

Meanwhile, Mayor Cayetano took note of the LCP President’s report and has given her endorsement of the the document.

 



"It has been a banner three-year period for the League of Cities of the Philippines. Our organization has become more united and active than ever. [...] The relevance of the LCP as both sounding board and active advocate of the concerns and issues of city mayors has never been as concrete," she said.
