Gov. Edgar Chatto has thanked in his campaign sorties the Boholanos for strongly believing in his work and reaffirming their trust in his leadership while asserting to continue what competence and good governance have proven.
In different areas of governance, Boholanos gave his administration with Vice Gov. Concepcion Lim even more convincing performance grades up to 22% higher than their ratings last year.
Three-quarters (76%) of the Boholanos were satisfied with the provincial government effort promoting tourism, resulting in 22-point higher net performance satisfaction rating than in 2015, according to the recent Bohol Poll 2016.
Protecting the environment earned additional net 14 points as 63% of the Boholanos got satisfied with the governmentâ€™s work in this field, the same survey conducted by the Holy Name University â€“ Research Center (HNU-RC) said.
The provincial government also hauled net satisfaction ratings of +28 from last year surveyâ€™s +15 in providing livelihood opportunities and employment and +23 from +11 in supporting the promotion of agriculture.
Boholanos further rated higher than in last survey their satisfaction with capitolâ€™s performances in promoting investments, ensuring adequate food supply, protecting life and property, and controlling graft and corruption.
On how they foresaw their lives 12 months from now, the Boholanos, across variables, gave â€œhigh net optimismâ€ to get better.
â€œOnly few agreedâ€ to this survey-given statement,Â â€œAdunay miingon nga wala na gyoy paglaum ang Bohol. Kung mahimo lang molangyaw ko sa laing lugar.â€
â€˜MUCH TRUSTâ€™Â IN THE POLICE
Even sustaining peace and order is gaining higher confidence from the people so that â€œclose to halfâ€ of the Boholanos now have â€œmuch trustâ€ in the Bohol PNP and been â€œsatisfiedâ€ with its fight against illegal drugs.
Around P66 million worth of shabu has been seized by the PNP, NBI and PDEA in intensified operations netting over 1,100 illegal drug elements since August in 2013 when Police Provincial Director Dennis Agustin took command of Camp Dagohoy.
Of the nominees for new chief of the Bohol PNP in 2013, Agustin was chosen by the governor after the former presented and assured the latter of a â€œtruly combativeâ€ anti-drug plan, provincial Administrator Alfonso Damalerio II recalled.
Sources from law enforcement agencies said Bohol under Chatto has since launched a truly serious war against the illegal drug proliferation, a grave social concern and a crime that begets more crimes appearing just neglected in the past.
â€œMajorityâ€ of the Boholanos were also â€œsatisfiedâ€ with the police performance in curbing other forms of criminality, the survey said.
HUMILITY INÂ GOOD SERVICE
While humbled by his â€œselfless servant leadership,â€ Chatto likewise thanked the Boholanos for rating number one his office among the â€œtop government officesâ€ in term of â€œmostâ€ satisfying services.
The Bohol Poll 2016 named the other leading offices where Boholanos were â€œmost satisfiedâ€ as the City Treasurerâ€™s Office, Carmen Registrarâ€™s Office, Anda COMELEC Office, City Registrarâ€™s Office, Alburquerque Treasurerâ€™s Office and Dauis Senior Citizenâ€™s Office.
Boholanos gave the governor high trust rating of 86% and separate 84% votersâ€™ preference rating while his opponent only got 10% as the survey even predicted a landslide victory for the Chatto-Lim tandem.
The survey result impressed many who thought it likewise effectively indicated that the people did dump the lavish vile black propaganda against the governor and that “slut campaign only validates political lust.”
Opponents and their highly-paid smear campaigners on radio have, by gravest lie, ridiculed Chatto Â as â€œGovernor Shabuâ€ and his walking defect (because of childhood polio) to be the â€œlame effect of shabu overdose.â€Â (Ven rebo Arigo)
