GENERAL TRIAS CITY, Cavite – Mayor Luis “Jon-Jon” Ferrer IV attended his first flag ceremony Monday, July 25, 2022, since he assumed office on June 30, 2022, after contracting COVID-19.

Ferrer spoke before the city council led by Vice Mayor Jonas Labuguen, city officials, 23 village chiefs, and police officers about his plans for local government staff and residents.

“For the past nine years, we were just ‘passengers’ of the former Mayor as a ‘pilot’ and Vice Mayor Morit Sison as his conductor… Now we are entrusted by the [Almighty] and the people of General Trias to lead with Vice Mayor Jonas Labuguen and councilors,” Mayor Ferrer IV said.

“Maraming nagtatanong, parang malaki ang pinagbago ni Mayor Jon, hindi po, kung sino po yung umalis na Jon Jon Ferrer, nine years ago, ako pa din po ito, ngunit nagbabalik na mas ‘matured’ na Mayor Jon Jon na po,” he added.

“Sa ating mag kawani, pasalamat po tayo, kahit po dumaan ang pandemiya, marami po ang nawalan ng trabaho, pero tayo po ay tuloy-tuloy at nadagdagan pa,” Ferrer said.

“Tuloy na po ang housing projects in coordination with Pro-Friends, three buildings po ang nakalaan para sa mga city hall employees and teachers in Barangay Santiago – need to be a member of Pag-Ibig Fund and the rice subsidy for regular and casual employee,” Ferrer said.

Ferrer also revealed that they will “reward” the “Top 3 Model Employees” yearly, starting December 2022, with P50,000 for 1st prize, P30,000 for 2nd prize, and 3rd placer will get P20,000.
