They have also shared their inputs to strengthen our campaign, “ said Mayor Treñas on a Facebook post after a series of meetings held over the day.
The meeting with the Iloilo Bloggers Society was a significant undertaking for Mayor Trenas who always reaches out to different stakeholders for support on efforts that uplift the common good.
“A strong partnership with both private and public sectors has been a great help for the Iloilo City Government to develop plans and programs that will support our fellow Ilonggos and put the city to the next level,” Treñas emphasized.
“Once again we are supporting our city on this noble effort through the campaign #IloiloPaBakunaTa,” said Nonoy Taclino, president of IBS.
