Medical and health assistance thru intensified barangayan or MATIN, the acronym for one of the well-accepted and appreciated activities of the municipality of Palo initiated by Mayor Remedios L. Petilla, Matin to all those close to her and to her constituents to bring local government services right at the doorsteps of Palo constituents.

Last Monday it was conducted at Pawing. Part of the activities was messages delivered by Barangay Captain Chiqui Ruth C. Uy of Pawing to include other captains from other barangays of Palo who participated in the barangayan.
Everyone enthused praises for the activity as they saw hundreds of Pawing residents to include nearby barangays who availed of its services: consultations, assistance to those who needed services like those from the Municipal Assessor, Treasurer’s Office, Civil Registration, Municipal Engineer’s concerns and from the Municipal Social Welfare Development.

Radio/tv broadcaster Bob Abellanosa likewise dialogued with the people and articulated many other aspects of community development to show that he is prepared and willing to sit a the Sangguniang Palalawigan to replace “Marian” Malou Go-Soco who will step down having serve the position for 3 consecutive terms.

Hon. Wilson Uy, Palo concilor and husband of Brangay Captain Chiqui host barangay of Pawing was all over the place during the barangayan. Rightly so and expected of him, because he was one of the sponsors of this barangayan as president of Philippine Councilors League, Leyte Chapter. Other sponsors of the barangayan included An Waray party-list of mayoraty hopeful for Tacloban City in the next elections, Congressman Bembem Noel. Neil Montejo is the other congressman representing An Waray party -list.
Of course the provincial government has shared also a good share and valuable assistance in the success of the Barangayan in Pawing. Dominic “Mic” Petilla, one of our hopefuls for provincial governor of Leyte, also provided assistance to Team Matin and in other areas when ever similar activities are being conducted not only in Palo but other towns of the province of Leyte.

Mayor Matin had a lot of heart-warming revelations during her talk but this space won’t be able to accommodate them. So, more comments of this OBSERVER later isue, all about Honorable Mayor Matin Petilla who is “always busy but never tired serving my constituents,” as reveled in her Leyte Kumusta Ka radio-tv program when asked why she is always on the go.
LKK is aired at IBC-6 tv station and heard simulcast at DyVL, Radio DIWA and DyMP, Radyo ng Bayan from 11-12n every Sunday.
