According to City Agriculturist Romulo Pangantihon, Mayor Jose Espinosa III instructed him to make a proposal on how to uplift the lives of the fisherfolk community, which is considered as the “poorest of the poor sector.” “It is part of the mayor’s Pag-ulikid Program. We already forwarded the proposal to Michael Dino, presidential assistant for the Visayas,” he said.
