Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia honors the city’s modern-day heroes — the city’s frontliners — who “continue to serve and offer their time, skills and talents to serve people and our beloved Bacolod City in the midst of this pandemic”.
Leonardia gave the message today as the country celebrates National Heroes’ Day.
He cited as heroes the doctors, nurses, first responders, barangay officials and workers, healthcare workers, support medical staff, law enforcement personnel, government employees, teachers, members of the media, transportation sector and drivers, delivery riders, supermarket workers, market vendors, farmers and fisherfolk, construction workers, and other economic frontliners.
“Let me thank, most importantly, each and every Bacolodnon for the continued cooperation and compliance in observing and following important health protocols to ensure the safety of our families,” he said, adding, “Kamo tanan ang mga ma tuod-tuod nga hero sa sini nga panahon sang pandemya. Sa inyo tanan, madamo gid nga salamat!”
