Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. and Lingayen Mayor Ernesto Castañeda, together with Sangguniang Bayan members of Lingayen, led the inauguration of the newly constructed SB building funded by the Provincial Government held last March 22.
The Prof. Amado G. Espino, Sr. Building was constructed to become the new home of the SB members together with municipal employees.
The Governor said the building was named after Prof. Amado G. Espino, Sr. the late father of the governor, who was born and raised in Lingayen.
“We the people of Lingayen express our deepest gratitude to Governor Espino,” Vice Mayor Orlando Bartolome said as he lauded the governor for funding the construction of the building.
The former SB building was devastated during the onslaught of the typhoon Cosme which left the municipal employees “homeless”.
“Ibinigay agad ni Gov. ang SB building, hindi na nagdalawang-isip, akala ko matatagalan pa, pero totoo pala na si Governor Espino aksyon agad, mayroon siyang isang salita.” Bartolome added.
Also, Mayor Jonas Castañeda described the governor as “the Pride of Pangasinan.”
“Less than 3 years pa lang siyang governor marami na siyang nagawa, kahit yung mga binubulong natin kahit walang resolution, nangyayari dahil kay Governor” Castañeda added.
Governor Espino said that the construction of the SB buiding, with the help of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, is part of his project which aims to give the government employees a proper and conducive workplace.
Meanwhile, Municipal officials of Lingayen together with Board Member Von Mark Mendoza presented a SB resolution expressing their deepest gratitude to Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. (PIO/Darwin Magalong)
