LUGAIT, Misamis Oriental--Mayor Wellie Lim, recently expressed his profuse thankfulness of the people of this municipality to Misamis Oriental Congresswoman Juliette Uy (2nd District) and her husband, gubernatorial candidate Julio Uy for the P10 million pesos worth of infrastructure projects that have been implemented so far.
“This is the first time for me as your Mayor to have been helped by our district representative in terms of getting projects from national agencies that has given us paved roads and public buildings that the people of Lugait have yearned for all these years,” Mayor Lim said.
Mayor Lim publicly thanked Congw. Uy in recent turnover ceremonies for multi-purpose buildings (covered court) located in Barangay Betahon and Barangay Kaluknayan and the rehabilitation of the Barangay Hall Upper Talacogon, each costing P2 million.
The Lugait mayor also said that the people of Purok Macao, in Barangay Poblacion, and Purok 5, in Barangay Biga were very happy for the concreting of their local road worth P2 million each.
“Lugait is thankful to Congw. Uy since there are still other projects to be done by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) that include two covered courts in Barangays Kalangahan and Aya-aya. This only shows that Congw. Uy has worked hard to get plenty of infrastructure projects for our municipality.
Due to the continued influx of nationally-funded projects, Mayor Lim called on his constituents and local officials to fully support the re-election bid of Congw. Juliette Uy.
“We should not stop supporting Congresswoman Juliette. I believe that we should work hard to get her elected again for Congress. Previous congressmen of our district were not as hardworking in terms of seeking funds to attend to the needs of local governments and their constituents. So we should all support Congresswoman Uy and her line up of leaders in the coming 2016 elections,” Mayor Lim said.
