Celeste scion injects youth into Pangasinan council
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) welcomed their newest member, Liga ng mga Barangay (LnB) Provincial Federation president Arth Bryan Celeste, during their regular session on Monday.
In his inaugural speech, Celeste asked his colleagues at the provincial board and Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Calimlim Jr. (SP presiding officer) to mentor and guide him.
The 22-year-old is the chairman of Barangay Magsaysay in Alaminos City. He finished Bachelor of Science in Business Entrepreneurship at the De La Salle University. He also leads the Philippine Red Cross Youth – Alaminos City Western Pangasinan Chapter.
He is the second millenial member of the SP, the other one being Sangguniang Kabataan Provincial Federation president Jerome Vic Espino.
“We have all been given the opportunity not ordinarily accorded to all. Ours is the privilege to render public service based on sound moral foundations, and an uncompromising duty to improve the lives of our constituents. It has been said repeatedly, that there is no higher calling than public service, where the chance to make a difference in people’s lives and improve the world is always a possibility,” he said.
Celeste won the LnB Provincial Federation election on July 30 and now leads more than 1,300 barangay captains in Pangasinan.
“It recently dawned on me that I now have the distinct opportunity to positively affect the lives and circumstances of our province mates. Collectively, this august body, which I am humbly now a part of, has the ability to craft meaningful legislation that touch upon the lives of every Pangasinense,” he said. (PNA)
