COMMITTEE ON BARANGAY AFFAIRS
President John Patrick Singson is a soft spoken and approachable person but firm in all his decisions especially for the good of the community. His passion to serve led him to help a lot of people not only in his immediate barangay but mostly Bigueños. He is a dedicated public servant who will continue to perform his mandate of giving quality service to the people especially those in need. He started in politics by being consistently the number 1 barangay kagawad for consecutive terms in Barangay VI. After which he ran unopposed in his first attempt as Barangay Captain and consequently won as the ABC President unopposed .He envisions to unify all the barangays as strong development partners of the City Government for a better and progressive Vigan. He is passionate to environmental sensitive issues, like for instance, when he led the Liga ng mga Barangay to pass a resolution opposing any mining or exploration in the coastal barangays of Vigan because exploring the magnetite sand will surely disturb the natural formation of the sand and the habitat of the marine species. They believed that the proposed offshore mining will result to faster erosion that could endanger lives and properties especially those living in the coastal barangays of Mindoro, San Pedro, and Pantay Laud. Information technology has been the economic and political structure of domestic institutions, of states, and the relations between states. Recognizing such development, ABC Pres. JP Singson led the barangays into the digital landscape by being the first and only Liga ng mga Barangay in the country to put up its own website. The products and services in the barangays are highlighted in the website to fully realize the barangays' economic potential. Exposure of the barangays of Vigan City to the internet would facilitate an open, speedy, and efficient online transmission of barangay reports, barangay citizen's charter, downloadable forms and other information to every barangay and all government agencies. Although Republic Act 9485 gives directive only to government agencies, departments, GOCCs, offices and bureaus to set up their respective service standards known as the Citizen's Charter, the Liga ng mga Barangay under Councilor Singson's leadership developed and implemented the Citizen's Charter at the grassroots level, the barangays. Now, the residents of the barangays of Vigan City are among the first in the country to have their own procedure to obtain a particular service promoting integrity, accountability and transparency in line with the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007.
