Department of Justice Undersecretary Markk L. Perete exhorts his fellow officials and employees in government:

“…It is our business as public servants to make sure the needs of our people are fulfilled at a day no later than today; to make them wait much longer is a dereliction of our duty to the Divine, to our countrymen, and to the national whom we pledged to serve.”

“We must therefore likewise demand more of our selves to meet the higher expectations of the public we serve. This we must do in fealty to our oath as public servant, and keeping in mind that our children, and their children deserve no less from us.”

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said that Undersecretary Parete truly deserves as one of the speakers in the 118th Civil Service Anniversary celebration.

Local government officials present are Councilors Lilani Ramon, Alan Cordova, Joe Kenneth Arbas and Michael Bandal with City Administrator Ricardo Gonzales Jr., Assistant City Administrator Dr. Dinno T. Depositario, prosecutors, students and city employees.
