Claver lady mayor vows to uplift the lives of townsfolk

Claver, Surigao del Norte--With a booming mining industry in her once-sleepy town, Mayor-elect Rosemarie Mira-Gokiangkee recently vowed to uplift the lives of her constituents in Claver, Surigao del Norte.

This was the assurance given by the first-ever elected lady mayor of Claver last Friday morning during the oath-taking ceremony conducted for all elected and reelected municipal officials.

She took her oath of office as Municipal Mayor before Executive Judge Victor Canoy of the Regional Trial Court Branch 29, Surigao City .

“With vast mineral resources, presence of multimillion mining companies and the opening of the largest mine refinery in the country, the town of Claver will surely experience a surge in economic activity which will eventually hasten development and progress in the area. In achieving this, we will lay out a responsive economic agenda and master development plan for the municipality and the same will become the centerpiece of my administration,” Gokiangkee revealed.

Popularly known as “Nene” to the townsfolk of Claver, the lady chief executive won handily over her opponent during the just-concluded May 2010 elections. She was considered by the masses as the only hope who can bring true progress and development to the town.

With hundreds of people who attended the ceremony, “Mayor Nene” said there must be “Kausaban, Kalambuan ug Kahiusahan” (Change, Progress and Unity) to address the primary requisites in improving the lives of Clavernons.

She also gave assurance that once the mine refinery will be opened soon, Clavernons will be given the first priority during the hiring of workers.

Meanwhile, members of the Sangguniang Bayan of the said town who were sworn in are: Vice-Mayor Ferdinand Sajulga, SB Jan Karol Broniola, SB Alvin Mercado Galgao, SB Diosdado Acido, SB Nilson Ocon, SB Narlito Jamesula, SB Jaypee james Nasayao and SB Cyril Abonita. SB Expedita Larase was not able to grace the said occasion. (Roel Catoto)
