San Fernando City Mayor Dong Gualberto on March 1 expressed his gratitude to his supporters for staying by his side despite being slapped by a 90-day preventive suspension by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).
The preventive suspension was due to the alleged misuse of public funds in the rehabilitation of the city’s plaza.
The Court of Appeals’ (CA) earlier reversed the Ombudsman’s dismissal order against him.
“Sa lahat ng ating pinagdaanan, maraming salamat sa inyong patuloy na suporta. Dahil sa inyong tiwala at pagmamahal ay nagkakaroon ako ng lakas upang lalo pang pagbutihin at pagsikapan ang aking tungkulin,” Gualberto said.
“Makakaasa po kayo na sa aking pagbabalik ay mas puspusan pa ang ating gagawing paninilbihan sa bayan,” he added.
