Vice President Jejomar Binay, who chairs the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC), lauded the distinctive housing program of Mayor Reynaldo S. Tamayo, Jr., during his visit at Kalkam Resettlement Site here, on October 6.

‘Ngayon lang ako nakakita na ang bahay ay gawa sa local materials at pinamimigay ng libre’, appreciated by the country’s second highest official who was a bit shocked when informed that houses here in the Municipality of Tupi are donated to resettled families.

Binay recalled their case in housing program was quite different where homeowners there are compelled to pay the mortgages.

“Dadagdagan ng National Housing Authority (NHA) ng 100 houses, kapag nakabili na si Mayor Tamayo ng lupa”, a good news conveyed by the HUDCC chairman who believed, ‘Gaganda ang buhay kapag may sariling buhay’.

On his speech, Binay further laid down the privileges of the ‘Sisterhood Relationship’ between the City of Makati and Municipality of Tupi.

He said that a sister municipality/city is entitled to free education, hospitalization and computer program, among others.

Congressman Sherwin Gatchalian, who was with Binay, aired the same sentiments as that of the vice president regarding the ‘Libreng Pabahay’.

‘Edukasyon ang solusyon upang maiangat ang pamilya sa kahirapan’, stressed by the legislator.

Present in the momentous event who warmly welcomed Binay were Tupi Mayor Tamayo, Vice Mayor Valentin G. Mariano Jr and Sangguniang Members, Barangay Chairmen, RD Reynaldo Tamayo Sr-DPWH XII, HUDCC Usec Alba, Rolando Perez of NHA, Alpha Phi Omega Bro & Sis, and resettled families.

‘Labis kaming nagagalak sa 100 na bahay na ibibigay ng NHA’, expressed gratefully by Mayor Tamayo telling Binay, ‘Ituloy mo lang ang laban- ang pagbigay ng serbisyo sa mga Pilipino’.

Meanwhile, Binay preferred his lunch to be served simple, thus joined the rest of Tupinians in a boodlefight.

“Let’s unite for progress and development.”

This is how Tupi Mayor Reynaldo S. Tamayo, Jr., concluded his 3rd State of Municipality Address (SOMA) before a jam-packed crowd gathered at Tupi Sports and Cultural Center (TSCC), Thursday, September 11, 2014.

SOMA, an inclusive part of the town’s 61st Foundation Anniversary and 5th Agten Tufi Festival, is one of the highlights of the culmination ceremony of the 11 day fete.

Tamayo bannered all aspects of development his administration had accomplished on its second term. In Social Services, the mayor cited the successful intervention through public and private intervention by improving the nutrition status of 5,028 children through a consolidated fund amounting to P9.2M pesos.

For Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino (4Ps), the local government has facilitated the distribution of P53,634,400 pesos to 3,482 beneficiaries. The mayor has reported that an additional 1,600 Indigenous People (IPs) will be added to the lists of 4Ps beneficiaries.

“Kung merong direct beneficiaries, meron namang indirect beneficiaries. Kaya pinapakiusap natin na ang withdrawal ng (P53,000.00) pera ay dapat dito sa ating munisipyo,” ( If there are direct beneficiaries, there are also indirect beneficiaries, reason why we work out that the withdrawal of the (P53,000.00) fund will be done here in our municipality)  the mayor said adding “Isipin nalang natin ang dagdag na perang yan na iikot sa ating munisipyo.” ( Just try to imagine the additional amount circulating in our municipality.)

In strengthening family relations, the mayor also intensified in going down to the barangay to solemnize 456 unmarried couples, and birth registration of 1,591 children.

On health care services, the mayor reported that the municipal hospital are already registered with the “Philhealth’s Point of Care” to ensure that those without Philhealth Insurance could still avail free health services.

“Ini implement na natin ang No Balance Billing Policy sa ating Hospital, na kung saan sa paglabas ninyo sa ating hospital ay wala kayong babayaran kahit na piso sa ating Hospital,” the mayor said adding “Ngayon pwedeng pwede na nating ipagsigawan na sa bayan ng Tupi ay Universal Philhealth na, lahat ng pamilya ay may Philhealth Insurance na.” said the mayor.

In education, the administration also vowed to continue its free education program in elementary and high school.

The Tamayo administration also work for the provision of free college education through scholarship. At present, the LGU has allotted some P500,000.00 for 56 scholars. It has also 1,200 college scholars with P6,000.00 support per semester from Representatives Pedro Acharon, Jr., of South Cotabato 1st District, and YACAP Party list Carol Lopez. To make this college education free to 1,200 scholars, the Mayor’s family has subsidizes more or less P6M per semester at P1,200.00 per students. With the help of public and private sector, we can proudly say that in Tupi college education could be free.

In agriculture, the administration has invest in providing post harvest facilities to increase value of farm products. Through the Department of Agriculture (DA), the administration was able to access 10 tonner mechanical dryer for corn amounting to P3.4M pesos. Identifying the need, the LGU again requested additional 20 tonner mechanical dryer from DA, which the latter has granted, according to the mayor.

The administration also availed of the P10M Mindanao Rural Development Program Community Fund which, P5M of which will be intended for cacao and coffee production, the remaining P5M for barangays corn production, and post harvest development project.
