Mayor REX recognized the 2021 Top Job Providers, Top Taxpayers, Topnotchers, Bar Passers, and PMA Graduates

Valenzuela City and Outgoing Mayor Rex Gatchalian

For the last time before he steps down as mayor, City Mayor REX pays off all the hard work of the Valenzuelano who contributed to the utmost progress of the City by giving a dinner tribute to its 2021 Top Taxpayers, Top Job Providers, Topnotcher, Bar Passers, and PMA Graduates, at ALERT Center, Multi-purpose Hall, recently.

Held annually since 2005, the event aims to honor the Top Taxpayers and Top Job Providers for 2021. They are the companies that religiously pay the highest business taxes, and who receives the highest number of job referrals from the Local Public Employment Office (PESO). During the pandemic, the Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO) and PESO personally handed the trophies and awards to the winning companies of 2019 and 2020 Top Tax Payers and Top Job Providers.

Outgoing Mayor REX expressed his appreciation to all the Top Taxpayers and Top Job Providers, “Valenzuela City tayo ngayon dahil sa inyo, sa mga buwis na ibinabayad ninyo, dahil sa corporate social responsibility ninyo, dahil sa job employment na ipinoprovide ninyo. Kayo ang bumuhay sa ating lungsod sa pamamagitan ng buwis na inyong binabayad. Kayo ang rason kung bakit may pagkain sa mesa ang ating mga manggagawa, dahil sa employment na pinoprovide ninyo.” (We are Valenzuela City today because of you, because of the taxes you pay, because of your corporate social responsibility, because of the job employment you provided. You made our city alive, by the tax you pay. You are the reason why our workers have food on their table, because of the employment you provided.)
