Parokya ni Edgard frontman sings praises of Alfonso Mayor Randy Salamat
Parokya ni Edgard frontman Chito Miranda is making no secret of his admiration for Alfonso Mayor Randy Salamat.
Miranda has been a resident of Alfonso for eight years and just loves the town because of its weather, its restaurant scene, and its safety.
He met Salamat when the latter was the vice mayor, and got to know his plans for Alfonso.
Salamat did much for the town when he became mayor, he said.
The roads were improved and became well lit, he said.
The water supply and the crime rate also got better, he added.
The economy got a boost because the mayor invited investors to put up restaurants, wedding venues, resorts, and other tourist areas while requiring them to have 70 percent of their employees be Alfonso residents.
Salamat was able to do all these amid the challenges posed by the Taal Volcano eruption and the pandemic, said Miranda.
Needless to say, Salamat has his full support!
“8 years ago, bumili kami ng bahay sa Alfonso, at lumipat kami dito.
Dapat talaga, bibili lang ako ng resthouse sa Tagaytay, pero sa kakahanap namin ng bahay at community na gusto namin, sa Alfonso kami napadpad.
We immediately fell in love with the place…at naging permanent bahay namin yung resthouse na binili ko.
Sobrang ganda ng Alfonso.
Malamig, sarap ng mga restaurants, at alam mo na safe.
Nakilala ko si Randy Salamat nung Vice Mayor pa lang sya, at kwento na sya ng kwento sa mga plano nila for Alfonso, at nung naging Mayor sya a few years ago, pinaganda nya pa mas lalo yung Alfonso.
Pina-ilawan nya yung mga roads, pinaganda nya yung mga kalye, inayos nya yung tubig, at pinatindi nya pa ang security (zero crime po kami dito sa Alfonso)…all with the intentions of making the municipality better, and consequently, more conducive for investors.
Binoost nya yung economy dahil mas naging inviting for investors to put up high end restaurants, wedding venues, resorts, and other tourist spots, at ang maganda dyan, ginawang nyang rule na dapat 70% ng empleyado ng mga establishments, kelangan galing sa Alfonso.
Nagpasok na syang revenue for the municipality, na maaring gamitin for improvements sa ating lugar (tulad ng mga CCTV sa public places, at yung facility na tinayo nya para sa mga asong gala na napakalaking problema dito sa atin), and more importantly, nabigyan pa nya ng opportunity yung mga kababayan natin na magka-trabaho (at di na kelangan lumuwas pa sa ibang city)
And to think, nagawa nya lahat yan kahit pumutok yung Taal at nagka-pandemic.
Matalino talaga…matalino, pero may puso.
Anyway, alam na alam na naman ng mga Alfonseño kung gaano kaayos mag-trabaho si Mayor Salamat eh.
Tuluy-tuloy lang, Mayor! Supportado ka namin
