Magalong said a certain individual introducing himself as Joel Mayol from the pool of generals of the Philippine National Police has been fooling individuals mostly from the lowlands as far as Quezon and Bicol provinces including uniformed personnel.

"Napakaraming hiningan ng pera at naloko itong pekeng heneral Joel Mayol na nagbebenta ng mga lupa sa Purok 28, Irisan," Magalong said.

Barangay officials and the Irisan community have complained the matter to him thus he ordered for an investigation and order the arrest of Mayol including his pastor associate.

According to the mayor, the lots being sold are titled properties but Mayol and his associates present themselves as formidable force by victimizing uniformed personnel to be their protector.

Magalong: Hindi tayo susuko... The goal is clear, to build Baguio back in far better ways

"Hindi tayo susuko... The goal is clear, to build Baguio back in far better ways."

"Hihilom tayo. Babangon tayo ng tuluyan. Babalik ang Baguio sa higit pang ganda, sa higit pang gayuma at sa isang progresong walang naiwan."

"Ating tandaan, nasa Diyos ang awa, nasa atin pa rin ang gawa. Salamat ng marami sa inyong pagsuporta at pagtitiwala."

The new mayor-elect of Baguio City promised to hold office at the dumpsite in Barangay Irisan on his second day as the summer capital's chief executive.

"My commitment to you is on my second day, I will hold office here in Irisan dumpsite, doon sa pinakamabahong lugar," said mayor-elect Benjamin Magalong.

Magalong said he would invite heads of offices, departments and concerned agencies to join him in spending a day there. "So they will feel, they will experience how they will live in such very, very foul environment," he said.

Magalong's statement on San Juan City Mayor's Quarantine Protocol breach

There is utmost need to re-assert the policy position of the City Government, that no one, regardless of rank and position, is exempted from the established and long-held health and safety protocols when entering the city. I reiterate this as an uncompromising measure for everyone, whether public or private status, to comply with the city's border control checkpoints upon entry in Baguio boundaries, to ensure that no one is put to undue health risk while in the city.

This policy is strongly iterated in view of the apparent violation of existing health protocols by a group of visiting officials led by San Juan, Metro Manila Mayor Francis Zamora --- ignoring the border control checkpoint at Kennon Road, and proceeding to their place of destination (Baguio Country Club) without their having to undergo the mandatory triage health examination.

These were the facts of the unfortunate incident that has drawn much comment in the social media. As reported to me (at that time I was in Metro Manila on an official business matter) by PNP Baguio city director Allen Rae Co, Mayor Zamora of San Juan, Metro Manila, arrived at the Kennon Road quarantine checkpoint at around 2:30 PM of June 5, 2020, on board a convoy of 6 vehicles, with uniformed personnel inside. When his group was flagged down for inspection, the driver of the lead vehicle just slowed down a bit, and merely told the checkpoint personnel that he was part of a convoy, pointing out the vehicles tailing his police car, then forthwith sped off with the Mayor's entourage in tow.

Accordingly, checkpoint personnel radioed the BCPO traffic operations center about the incident and followed the Zamora vehicles enroute to the Baguio Country Club. Upon arrival, the group was asked for the required medical health clearance, but since none was presented, was politely told to undergo triage examination. Considering that they were already at their destination, medical personnel from the City Health Service Office were dispatched to BCC to set up the triage facility, purposely to ensure that containment and isolation, if needed, were done.

From this narration of facts, it can be reasonably sensed that Baguio's health and safety protocols have been violated and the regulatory mechanism of quarantine check and triage examination at the Naguillan facility was not followed.

To his credit, Mayor Zamora took the effort to inform me about this incident and apologized for the serious lapse on the part of his police escorting officer. He profusely expressed deep regrets that while asleep in his car at the time, the PNP escort leading his convoy mindlessly took it on his own to ignore what has long been a standard border protection measure prescribed not only in his but our own city.

It is clear that the San Juan City-based police officer who served as lead escort of his City Mayor's convoy has committed a serious breach of standing quarantine protocols. While in Metro Manila at that time, I gave stern instructions to my office staff and the city health authorities to see to it that the visiting Mayor's group, including himself, go through triage examination, for containment purposes should anyone be tested positive of the virus. Quick action on the part of the CHSO led to the installation of the triage at the former's facility to ensure that the procedure will be conducted and to minimize the movement of said persons before they were properly checked.

Subsequent complaints have also been lodged with concerned police officials, namely no less than the PNP Deputy Chief for Administration Police General Camilo "Picoy" Cascolan, the San Juan City Police City Director Jimmy Santos, and even our Baguio PNP city director Col. Allen Rae Co, to call their collective attention on this incident that put Baguio at serious health risk by the simple act of ignoring health and safety protocols.

I am confident that appropriate steps are forthcoming for this breach of health quarantine protocols, even more so in ensuring that absolutely no one, with or without rank, be allowed to transgress safety measures put in place to keep everyone out of harm.

Let this incident --- of avoidable mistakes and lapses in judgment --- serve to make us even steadfast to keep Baguio at zero or less health risk as possible.
