‘Don’t let drugs destroy future’


Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo recently enjoined the youth of Barangay Bajumpandan and the city not to destroy their future by indulging in illegal drugs.

“In Dumaguete, I want children who will become community models not standbys or drug dependents,” he said.

He said he was amazed to see more than 500 children and their parents gathered by officials of the barangay, headed by Barangay Captain Crispin Patrimonio, at the Children’s Congress and Fun Day at Bajumpandan, recently.

He advised them to be in school and finish their studies because the present administration is bringing investors to open lots of job opportunities for them in the future.

He also announced the plans of Camella Homes to construct a mall in the barangay soon, so they don’t have to go to downtown Dumaguete to shop.

Another plan of the city is the establishment of a mini-hospital in a government lot in Barangay Talay. It will be a two-storey building, side by side with the establishment of a fire department and the police headquarters in the area.

Other plans are for the construction of a government center and a coliseum where sport activities can be held, hopefully, in Bajumpandan, Remollo said.*
