LAMUT, Ifugao – Mayor Mariano Buyagawan Jr. added another feather on his cap by winning the 2019 National Gawad Parangal Award as the Most Outstanding Mayor of the Philippines for 4th to 6th class municipalities.

The award was conferred by the Association of Social Welfare and Development Offices of the Philippines (ALSWADOP) during the 23rd National Social Welfare and Development Forum and General Assembly at the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City recently.

Buyagawon assumed as mayor in 2010 with the slogan “Umuna ti Lamut” (Lamut First) which he maintained through his third and last term as unopposed candidate in the May 13, 2019 elections.

Driven by dedication, hard work and righteousness, he ran to serve the public from his private practice as a lawyer. Slowly he transformed the fourth class municipality into a booming economic hub of Ifugao.

His simplicity in managing the local government unit coupled with the support of his people and officials made the town excel in many areas of governance resulting to various national, regional, and provincial awards. 

Among the awards, Lamut ranked as the Second Most Competitive LGU for 3rd to sixth Class Municipalities of the Philippines by the Department of Trade and Industry in 2018, Hall of Famer Award for the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) by the Department of the Interior and Local Government, and the Red Orchid Award by the Department of Health in 2017.

The municipality under his helm won the Seal of Good Housekeeping since 2011 and became a Hall of Famer for passing the SGLG from 2015 to 2017, ranked second in the competitiveness score on the four pillars of Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, Infrastructure and Resiliency; and the Red Orchid Award from 2015 to 2018 by passing all the requirements for a smoke-free municipality.

Other awards  include the Seal of Child-friendly Local Governance by the Department of Social Welfare and Development in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2017, and 2018; the Best Clean and Green Implementation in the province for 2018; and Environmental Award practicing and sustaining Best Practices under Republic Act  9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Law; Sandugo Award by the DOH for 2017-2018 for regular mass blood donation program; Fire Olympic Award in the region in 2017; and the Gawad Gabay Award for Galing sa Paggabay sa mga Bata in 2017.

Buyagawan is also a Lingkod Bayan awardee in the regional level in 2018.

He attributed his successes to the strong support and solidarity of stakeholders for participatory governance.
