Provincial Director Martin Porres B Moral, in his message, encouraged everyone to respond on the presented issues and concerned of the target barangays. "Merong mga issues na hindi kayang bigyan ng solusyon at the Municipal level at maaaring ang kayang mag-bigay ng solusyon ay ang Provincial level. Kaya naman, sa ganitong pagkakataon ay mapag usapan ang commitment ng bawat isa nang sa gayon ay mapagtulong-tulungan po natin, kasama ng ating mga partner agencies". PD Moral believes that the concerned functionaries, agencies and other stakeholders are capable in providing solution and will exert all efforts in upholding utmost excellence in public service.
RCSP is a convergence mechanism for LGUs particularly in the barangay for the identification of issues and needed government interventions.
