IT’S NOT ABOUT BEING GENEROUS. Peter Cua and the Sangguniang Bayan joined hands in giving 586 public school teachers in San Andres 25 kilos of rice each during World Teacher’s Day last week.

Amid misgivings concerning government inaction on their demand for higher pay, public school teachers in San Andres felt some relief with the town mayor’s trademark generosity in providing them with rice packs during the World Teacher’s Day celebration on Oct. 5, 2019.

The administration of Mayor Peter “Boss Te” Cua added spark to the celebration, held with the theme “Gurong Pilipino: Handa sa Makabagong Pagbabago,” by giving each of the town’s 586 public school teachers 25 kilos of rice.

The local chief executive said it was not about being generous but of recognizing the indispensable role of teachers in shaping the moral foundation and charting the destiny of students as future leaders of the community.

The “LGU San Andres Rice Assistance Program for Teachers” jointly implemented by Mayor Cua and the Sangguniang Bayan is aside from other instances in the recent past when the mayor showered accolades and personal support to teachers.

Miguelito Rodriguez, the former principal of San Andres Central Elementary School (SACES) said he became enamored of Boss Te’s sense of public service when, after a request through text message, he was sent a car by the mayor for use in an official function outside the municipality.

Rodriguez said that never in his life has he felt a sense of urgency in a political leader in providing help just on the basis of a text message and disregarding formality.

Mayor Cua also looks at Valentine’s Day as an opportune time to recognize the importance of public school teachers by sending packs of chocolates that this early, they entertain thoughts that Christmas gifts are already in the mayor’s list of priorities.

But the sector that benefits much from Boss Te’s generosity even in absence of occasions are the inmates at the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) district jail at Carangag, who savor the taste of meat once a week, with the town mayor sending them 10 kilos of pork every Saturday. (jvr)
