Fifty newly hired or promoted Capitol employees took their oaths of office before Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson on November 24 at the Negros Residences in Bacolod City.
A statement issued by the provincial government said that the recently hired or promoted employees are assigned in various departments and offices, as well as provincial government-owned hospitals located in various LGUs.
Lacson urged the employees to act with patriotism and justice, and lead modest lives, as civil servants play a crucial role as representatives of the government.
“I want to emphasize that the Constitution of the Republic states that public office is a public trust. Public officers and employees must, at all times, be accountable to the people, serving them with utmost responsibility, integrity, loyalty and efficiency,” he said.
Negros Occidental Provincial Administrator Atty. Rayfrando Diaz was also present at the activity, which was spearheaded by the Provincial Human Resource Management Office, headed by Felomina Gozon.*
