Yes, there are more of these coming! The 25th October, 2010 Barangay Election once again sat Hon. Victor A. Baluyot Jr. as Punong Barangay and retained five (5) of his Kagawad. It is hoped that the two (2) newly elected Kagawad would add embers of good purpose and intentions, of enthusiasm to serve and be part of the current glow of vision: More developments and improvement for Tortugas. The chance to continue to serve means realization of the following plans for Barangay Tortugas.

1. Rehabilitation/ Construction of canals with concrete cover
2. Rehabilitation/ Construction of seawall (West & South side)
3. Construction of Multi-Purpose Building (New Barangay Hall)
4. Construction of seawall at Lupang Pangako
5. Rehabilitation of Barangay Health Center at Barangay Tortugas
6. Re-roofing of Multi-Purpose Building (Covered Court) at Bay Park
7. Road access leading to Lupang Pangako
8. Low Cost Housing Projects

Though doing so many things in the line of duty sometimes drain them, even leave a bad taste to some, bottom line is member of Barangay Council will not stop in seeking ways and means to make Tortugas no longer a commonplace but a transformed barangay. Let us all join hands in witnessing the glory of Tortugas: a place of beauty and splendor and progress. Let us all work for the glory of GOD!
