Roxas City (13 August) -- The provincial government of Capiz has released the maiden issue of its official newsletter last August 12 as a medium of information in keeping the constituents informed on the efforts and accomplishments of the said local government unit.
The newsletter named "Pag-ulikid: Labi sa Tanan ang Tawo" is a monthly tabloid format publication in Hiligaynon language that centers on accomplishments and updates of the province's 5-year development agenda.
"Pag-ulikid newsletter will augment the weekly blocktime radio program in the aim to keep the Capiceņos informed and make the provincial government transparent to the public," said Capiz Provincial Press Bureau (CPPB) Chief as well as Pag-ulikid newsletter Editor-In-Chief Edward Basilonia.
A "Pag-ulikid" blocktime program over a Community Antenna Television (CATV) local channel is also set to start this August.
The launching of the 8-page Pag-ulikid newsletter was also in time with the launching of Capiz Gov. Victor Tanco's official jingle graced by the provincial government department heads and local tri-media practitioners.
The jingle, approximately three minutes and 20 seconds and has video support, was also named Pag-ulikid. It was composed by local artist and broadcast journalist John Heredia.
"This is how we interpret public service," said Governor Tanco in his message during the Pag-ulikid jingle launching.
"We put into a jingle our development agenda to inculcate to all provincial government employees the battlecry of the administration in uplifting the quality of lives of the Capiceņos," Tanco added. (PIA) [top]
