Fernando has once again been recognized as the Department of Finance (DOF)-Bureau of Local Government Finance (BLGF) conferred to the province the Hall of Fame award for Local Revenue Generation during the Awarding Ceremony held at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City this morning.

“Tayo po ay nagagalak sa sunud-sunod na parangal na ating nakakamit para sa Lalawigan ng Bulacan. Nakatutuwa pong isipin na hindi nawawalan ng saysay ang ating mga pagsisikap. Umasa po tayo na ang bawat parangal na ating tatanggapin ay gagamitin natin upang lalong pagbutihin ang pagbibigay-serbisyo sa ating mga minamahal na Bulakenyo,” the governor said.
BLGF Deputy Executive Director Flosie F. Fanlo-Tayag said that local treasurers and local government units solidify their commitments with excellent public service, transparency and integrity by embarking in the local treasury professionalization and best practices in local revenue generation.
“Believe. Believe in what you have learned. Believe that you can empower. Believe in yourself that you can surpass it all. Let’s all maintain the passion, zeal and humility towards achieving great things for local finance and the Filipino people,” Tayag said. ###
