Outgoing Narra Mayor Lucena Diaz-Demaala called on the incoming administration to continue their positive projects, as she delivered her last State of the Municipality Address (SOMA).
“I hope, the next administration will pursue what we have planted, a clean and drug-free community”, Demaala said at the event Monday afternoon at the Narra Gymnasium.
“To the next administration, please make Narra a Drug-Free Municipality, to implement all the municipal ordinances on our revenue and for we are aiming the cityhood of Narra”
She called on the next administration to protect the natural resources of the town and focus on the peace and order without illegal gamblings and drugs.
Mayor-elect Gerandy Danao, who defeated her in her reelection bid during the recent May 13 elections, will formally sit on June 30 taking over the reins of government from the Demaalas who ruled the municipality for more than three decades.
She said the new administration should also address the rising vehicular accidents involving motorcycles with Narra topping the list in Palawan.
Tax collection should also be efficient and achieve the goal of reaching P100 million so that there will be more opportunities for the people and eventually achieve our dream of cityhood in the next two years, Demaala said.
She also thanked her family for their continuous support for her political career.
“Mula sa kaibuturan ng aking puso, kasama ko ang aking pamilya through thick and thin and to this humbling experience of losing in this election, tanggapin po ninyo ang aming pasasalamat para sa inyong walang sawang suporta at tiwala at pagmamahal, your Local Chief Executive aims for excellence”, she said.
“And now, as I step down, let us all pray together, that all the achievements, all the projects, and all advocacy we have implemented in this municipality, will not be entailed,” Demaala said.
