TAGBILARAN CITY, March 7 (PIA)— Two Bohol best models in local governance get to national fame as the country’s search for best showcases in local governance comes to a cap this year. 

And if it is already a feat to have two for Bohol, the two entries all come from a barangay in Bohol: Gotozon, Loboc.

Gotozon Loboc, Bohol’s Lupong Tagapamayapa acted as local mediation board and scored high in settlement of cases in coordination with national agencies which allowed them to put up a good record in mediation, said Ma. Reina Quilas of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Bohol.

Gotozon’s local mediation also set up a system which could easily be replicated by other Lupons in the province, she added. 

The barangay justice committee has put up a sustainability and advocacy system that propelled it to the region’s top award for local barangay adjudication teams, according to the DILG.

From the same barangay, another regional winner: Felga Priete barged her way to the regional finals after winning the Barangay Treasurer’s Category and into the national competition after winning in Bohols "The Outstanding Barangay Officials of the Year" (TOBOY). 

The search for TOBOY is designed to give recognition to barangay officials of Region 7 who have shown exemplary performance in the discharge of their functions, according DILG.  

Initiated in Bohol years back, the recognition is now jointly undertaken by the Local Administration and Development Program Alumni Association of the Philippines (LADPAAP) Region 7 chapter; the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the Liga ng mga Barangay of Region 7, with the support of benevolent parties/institutions that have offered to sponsor the program.

The program accepts nominations, who will be assessed based on their outstanding accomplishments, performance, innovations and exemplary leadership. (mbcn/rahc/PIA7-Bohol)
