Mayor Babalcon to bring back cleanest and greenest status of Paranas

Paranas, Samar - Atty. Eunice Babalcon, Paranas' newly-elected mayor vows to bring back the days when her town was the cleanest and greenest the whole province of Samar.

Paranas town Mayor Babalcon, witnesses by her family, takes her oath of office at the town's plaza on 30 June 2016.
This was one commitment she wants to pursue along with shared responsibility with barangays, peace and order, eradication of illegal drugs and other programs and projects initiated by then Mayor Yolanda Tan and much earlier her father, the late Felix Babalcon. 

Speaking in the dialect, Babalcon, a young lawyer, said her employees will go to every barangay and bring the LGU to the people. She also promised to maintain the green and healthy environment Paranas has. 

“We will try to regain our crown as the cleanest and greenest municipality in Samar,” she added. Paranas was a hall of fame awardee as the cleanest and greenest in the years 1999, 2000,2002, 2005 and 2006. 

Along with this quest, she added that she will pursue sanitation programs to address environmental issues. Sanitary inspector Roger Brillantes said that in the whole of Samar, it is only Paranas that has scored the highest in the provision of toilets. 

To work with the national government in its agenda of peace and order and eradication of illegal drugs, the lady mayor gave a marching order to the Chief of Police, to apprehend criminals, not to be complacent and go out and prevent criminality. 

The new chief executive who served as Board Member in the past also took pride in the tourist destinations in her turf, the Olot Torpedo Ride in Olot River and the Mountain Resort at the Samar Island Natural Park (SINP), these are gaining national and international visitors. 

She also vowed to continue the different programs initiated by the past administration that has served Paranas folks. 

Once or twice, the lady would allude to her father who died because of an illness while still serving as the mayor of Paranas town, and each time, she would get emotional. 

She also gave recognition to her Mom, who remained strong and steadfast in keeping her family intact despite the challenges. 

The lady mayor cheated death in a campaign sortie with the Liberals when an unknown assailant fired on the group which killed Calbayog City Mayor Ining Uy and seriously wounded the young Babalcon in 2013. (Nimfa Quirante – PIA Samar with reports from Jun Arceno)
