ANGELES CITY – A day after the National and Local Elections, the team of re-electionist Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. led the clean-up of all election campaign materials, including posters and wall murals, from the streets of the city.
Team Lazatin personnel were seen in various barangays of the city removing and collecting used campaign materials, which will be disposed of in accordance with the advisory from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) dated May 2, 2022.
They were joined by personnel from the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) and the Angeles City Traffic and Development Office (ACTDO).
The said advisory reminds LGUs to abide by the provisions of the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 in disposing of campaign paraphernalia, especially ones made of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials.
“Tapos na po ang eleksyon at kampanya, now it’s time for us to clean up the propaganda materials around the city,” said Lazatin.
Since he first ran for City Councilor back in 2013, Lazatin has always initiated a clean-up of propaganda materials around the city immediately after the elections.
On May 7, prior to election day, Lazatin also appealed to Angeleños for a “peaceful and honest” election.
“Supporters from opposing camps naturally get heated during the campaign period, in part due to their enthusiastic support for candidates,” Lazatin had said, “but on Election Day itself, I hope everyone can keep their heads cool and uphold the peace.”
