In response to the needs of times, where technology is a medium where people all over the world communicate effectively, it is timely that the formulation of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of General Santos City website is being materialized in order for us to deliver more effectively.
This event is very significant as the city council hopes to achieve a Legislative Tracking System which is a powerful tool in effective and responsive governance that is embedded and installed in this website.
The 16th Sangguniang Panlungsod initiated this project as one of their visions of having Interactive Governance in the city. The formulation of the website started early this year, but eventually the project was hanged due to some constraints. In July 2011, with her earnest desire to pursue the project, the City Vice Mayor, Shirlyn L. Bañas-Nograles formed “the Web Team” composed of Engr. Fernando Provido, Ms. Ma. Theresa A. Ciocon, together with our Computer Programmers and IT experts Mr. Michael A. Saulon and Eskie James Maquilang who work hand in hand in the development of the website. Different challenges were encountered during the process, from web design, to contents, and articles.
Finally, the website is ready for launching and we commend the support of everybody. Our City Councilors: Hon. Ronnel C. Rivera, Hon. Elizabeth B. Bagonoc, Hon. Vivencio E. Dinopol, Hon. Richard L. Atendido, Hon. Nepthale P. Natividad, Hon. Eduardo D. Leyson IV, Hon. Dante S. Vicente, Hon. Viriginia T. Llido, Hon. Dominador S. Lagare III, Hon. Marius Orlando A. Oco, Hon. Margareth Rose N.

And the support of our division Chiefs Mr. Reynaldo Tesoro, Mrs. Rosalinda Mondido, Mrs. Lolita Pedro, Ms. Mary Tutor, Mrs. Rosela Reyes, Mrs. Virginia Dime and our Sangguniang Panlungsod Secretary Atty. Rosendo A. Roque.
We also commend in particular the support of our city councilor, Hon. Margareth Rose N. Santos who volunteered to assist in the conduct of training for our City Councilors and SP Staff on “how to Blog” using the internet.
Today marks the beginning of the new era. And now is the best time to look inward to take stock of our inner strength and to have the result to maximize what we inherently have. We shall also have the opportunity to build more bridges and strengthen those we have built. Let us commit ourselves to creating new initiatives, new ideas, and new ways to join together and work together toward a brighter future for the people of General Santos City.
