The Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Regional Director Atty. Ma. Janet C. Mesa extended her congratulatory message to San Carlos City Mayor Gerardo P.

She added that said award is the PIA’s humble way of appreciating and recognizing the efforts of the information office among the national agencies and local government units.

Eddie Flor C. Silva, Information Officer of San Carlos City said that whatever achievement their office received has something to do with the city’s commitment to good public service and complete adherence to transparency.

Silva cited that the information office has reached this far because its work is reflective of what the city government has also achieved in terms of service and governance.
