STO. Domingo, Nueva Ecija -- Mayor Greg G. Andres has sought the help of the Philippine National Police-Cybercrime Division in tracing the identity of the person or persons behind the putting up of a fictitious Facebook account which uploaded pictures of him having drinks with some women inside a “VIP” room of a popular videoke bar in Manila.
Andres made the revelation when he met with rank-and-file employees, permanent, job order workers and other department heads at the town hall on Tuesday.
Andres, the former vice mayor who was installed into power last August 2, conducted the “heart to heart” talk for the first time with his employees since assuming the post after former Mayor Imee Llado-De Guzman was ordered dismissed from the service by the Ombudsman for grave misconduct.
Andres said he wanted to know their sentiments and grievances and also to apprise them of the plans and programs of his new administration.
“Kagaya po ’yung mga naninira sa akin sa social media o sa Facebook, matagal na po ’yung nakapost sa FB na iyun hindi pa po ako pulitiko noon, ako po iyon na may kasama pang mga babae. Iligal po iyon kase private po iyong okasyon na ’yun, eh ipinost sa FB, kaya pinapa-trace ko po kung kanino ang fake account na iyon sa PNP-Cybercrime unit kaya mahuhuli po ang may gawa noon, mate-trace po kung saan ang bahay ng may gawa,” said Andres, who also told this writer that it was posted last Sept. 8.
Andres vowed to give them cash incentives and benefits in the form of loyalty awards or bonuses to augment their salaries. He said he would increase their clothing allowance and give them individual health cards.
Glenda Ambrocio, municipal personnel officer, said the municipal government has a total workforce of 517 employees, with 114 of them occupying plantilla positions, 193 as job orders, 193 workers assigned to Clean and Green, and 18 are contractuals.
Earlier, Andres said the hallmarks of his new administration would be good governance, accountability, transparency and implementation of the rule of law.
