Matapos ang matagumpay na implementasyon at paglabas ng nationwide assessment sa Top Government Officials (President/Vice President/House Speaker/Senate President/Cabinet Members sa overall performance ay nagsagawa ang RP- Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD) ng nationwide survey mula Setyembre 3-15, 2021 para sa lahat ng Mayors, Governors, at mga miyembro ng House of Representatives para sa kanilang overall performance.
Sa Region VIII (Eastern Visayas), ang resulta ng “Top Municipal Mayors” ay ang mga sumusunod: si Mayor Gerard Roger Espina ng Naval, Province of Biliran na may 72 percentage points job performance rating ang Top Municipal Mayor sa Eastern Visayas. Pangalawa si Mayor Manuel Vicente Torres ng Kananga, Province of Leyte na may 68 percentage mark.
Pumangatlo si Mayor Imelda Tan ng Sogo, Province of Southern Leyte na may 66 percentage score habang si Mayor Annaliza Gonzales-Kwan ng Guiaun, Province of Eastern Samar ay pang-apat sa 64% rating. Nasa 5th position si Mayor Eunice Babalcan ng Paranas, Province of Samar na may 62 percentage votes, at sumunod si Mayor Francisco Rosales Jr. ng Catarman, Province of Northern Samar na may 60% count.
“The ratings and rankings are greatly dependent on their job performances. The expectations and duties of the Mayors are extensive that encompasses several roles being the local Chief Executive – supervise and implement all policies and programs, projects, and services of the LGU. Enforce all laws and ordinances in relation to the governance of the city. Initiate and maximize the generation of resources and revenues and use these for implementing plans. Most importantly, addressing and responding to the effects of the covid19 pandemic—- those who ranked no. 1 in their respective province should be recognized and commended for performing well,” ayon kay Dr. Paul Martinez, Executive Director ng RPMD.
