Magalong orders city workers to smile, relax
by PNA

City Mayor Benjamin Magalong issued a standing order on his first working day for city government employees to smile and relax.

The usually formal flag-raising ceremony on Monday, which welcomed the new set of officers and their staff, had a community singing where everyone held hands and sang “If we hold on together.”

“Relax and keep on smiling. This is not a military camp. Please relax every time you see me and smile,” Magalong said, adding that employees and officials should also do the same when dealing with clients.

Magalong belied information that he will run the city government like a military camp.

“That is fake news,” he said.

Magalong retired as the second highest officer of the Philippine National Police in 2016. He was known for being strict and workaholic.

He said the city faces several challenges but with good foresight and everyone on the boat to paddle in unison, the problems can be addressed.

“We are one family facing lots of challenges which will be difficult to solve without collective effort,” Magalong said as he starts leading over 1,900 regular, casuals, job order and co-terminus employees of the city government.

During his oath-taking June 30, Magalong also appealed for cooperation among residents by doing small things that would not aggravate the problems of the city and to help in the city’s endeavors.

Magalong is inheriting several problems that have remained unsolved for years such as the growing traffic problem, waste disposal woes, and environmental degradation issues.

He urged city employees to go on moving forward every day in working hard for Baguio's welfare. He said while the same work is done daily, the employees should endeavor to look for ways on how to improve oneself and the performance of their tasks.

Second-term Baguio Rep. Marquez Go also reminded city government employees that they work for the city government for a better purpose, a career to make Baguio better and make things happen.

“Your officials, our mayor cannot do this alone. He needs you, he needs all of us. We are all called to serve our city, what matters is the next thing that we will do, more than what we are doing,” Go said.

First-term Vice Mayor Faustino Olowan left three Cs in a message to city employees – communicate, cooperate, and coordinate and the city will be well.

In welcoming the new set of officials, Association of City Executives president and Budget Officer Leticia Clemente said as employees holding plantilla positions, they are mandated by law to work side by side with whoever is sitting as mayor.
