Offers for higher national government positions kept pouring down for Mayor Oscar “Richard” S. Garin, Jr but he chose to stay and serve the Miagaowanons.
In his speech during the Search for Lin-ay kang Hablon 2022, Mayor Garin shared that because of the overwhelming result of the May 9, 2022 National Elections, he was offered higher positions with the DPWH and DSWD.
“It was very tempting, but I cant. Indi ko kamo pagpabay-an Miagaowanons.” said Mayor Garin.
Mayo Garin is serving his first term as Municipal Mayor of Miagao. In most of his public engagements, he has been vocal of his vision for Miagao. In 2023, with the assistance from Congresswoman Janette Garin, some 250-million worth of infrastructure projects were lined up for the town.
