Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benhur Abalos won’t let “noble acts” from his personnel go unnoticed.
This, as the agency bared Thursday, Feb. 25 that it has commended eight traffic enforcers in recognition of their good deeds.
Given certificates of commendation were Ernesto Bungay Jr., Junathan Salmingo, and Charmaine C-Zeil Balmores for their honesty after they surrendered a lost wallet with ATM (automated teller machine) cards through a public service television program last Jan.4.
Enforcers Mark Anthony Aguilar and Romero Owen were also hailed for their honesty when they returned a lost wallet to its owner in Makati City last January 24. All are assigned at the Central Traffic Enforcement District 1.
“We commend our traffic personnel for their exemplary and admirable character of truthfulness. Their act is worthy of emulation,” Abalos said.
Meanwhile, Mobile Patrol Unit members Roel Bayaua, Marlon Natada, and Eddie Rosal also received certificates in recognition of the assistance they gave to a family whose car tire was deflated on EDSA-Munoz last February 9.
“Their noble act and willingness to extend assistance to anyone in time of need are manifestations of their high sense of dedication to duty,” the MMDA chairman said.
Abalos said their good deeds are worthy of emulation, serving as examples to other government employees.
He said the traffic enforcers’ recognition will be part of their records and will be included in their recommendation for promotion. (Ellson A. Quismorio)
