The Mayor's Message
Welcome to the Gender and Development of San Marcelino GAD Focal Point System!
Since time immemorial, it has always been a norm that men dominate. They rule, they lead, they influence. Their voices are the loudest and the woman’s are just whispers in the wind. Through the passing of time, the way our society see women gradually changed. Slowly their voices became louder and they became a powerful influence and an important pillar in our society.
The contributions of women in all levels of our society are undeniable. Beginning from home in carefully raising their children to their workplaces as a leader in shaping the future of their offices and professions. It has been evident from their accomplishments that IN PROGRESS, NO GENDER IS PREFFERED. Everyone – men, women and members of the LGBTQIA community – regardless of your gender, you can be a leader for progress.
I would like to thank and honor all the Marcelinean women and LGBTQIA members for their leadership, support and unselfish service to our community. Your influence is vital in molding our community’s future and your contributions a foundation for a stronger and more progressive San Marcelino.
HON. MAYOR ELVIS RAGADIO SORIA
