A RESOLUTION STRONGLY ENDORSING THE NOMINATION OF CITY COUNCILOR EDWIN J. PIANO TO THE 2009 NATIONAL SEARCH FOR THE TEN OUTSTANDING COUNCILORS OF THE PHILIPPINES
WHEREAS, the members of the Local Council Executive Board (LCEB) of the James L. Gordon Council was informed that one of its member Sctr. Edwin J. Piano, Council Vice Chairman, has been nominated to represent the city in the prestigious national search for the Ten Outstanding Councilors of the Philippines.
WHEREAS, the LCEB executive committee members, recognizing Sctr. Piano’s contribution to the Local Scouting Movement, decided to convene for a special session to express support to his nomination.
WHEREAS, among the notable contribution of Sctr. Piano to the Local Scouting Movement includes the term of service which dated back in the year 2001 and up to the present, providing voluntary service to the Scouts of Olongapo City.
WHEREAS, in the past years, Sctr. Edwin Piano has been instrumental in the continued development and growth of the programs and activities of the local scouting movement in forms immeasurable and most are intangible but very valuable in nature. Such contribution may be highlighted but not limited to:
Establishment of the Regular training for young scouts which paved the way for the creation of the Council Model Troop.
Chaired the council’s annual participation to the Jamboree-on-the-Air/Jamboree-on-the-Internet giving way to our scouts to communicate with Scouts from other countries and garnering the award of having the most contacts and successful “fox hunting.”
He worked for the establishment of the official internet blog-site for the James L. Gordon Council-http://bsp.subicbay.ph which gave way to the council’s regional, national and international linkages. To date, the council was able to establish more contacts and have had several joint activities with scouts from outside of Olongapo.
Has been very instrumental in the passage of several City Council Resolutions supporting the Boy Scouts of Olongapo including the approval for the construction of the Council’s BSP Headquarters and among others.
Through his effort, additional funding was given by the City Government to support the Council’s local operation which includes the budget for the Salary of the Council Scout Executive, and allowances for two (2) BSP council’s support staff.
His physical presence in numerous activities both local, regional, national and international, provided boost to the local BSP council and has attracted other local leaders, councilors and private individuals to do the same.
Serves as deputy camp chief and have held high positions in all the local Council Jamborette and served as Deputy Camp Chief for Administration during the council’s hosting of the 1st Joint CLR-NCR Regional Jamborette held in Subic Bay Freeport Zone last December 2005.
WHEREAS, despite his stature as a local legislator, he gave time to attend trainings and orientations in full humility- among these trainings includes the 3-days/2-nights Basic Training Course for Leaders of Adult held in Bataan, Basic Scout Orientation held at Rosevelt Park, several Basic Training Courses sponsored by the Council.
WHEREAS, in recognition to his contribution, Sctr. Piano has been awarded the National Bronze Service Award and is again among the few nominees for the National Silver Service Award.
WHEREAS, the Members of the Local Council Executive Committee, representing the policy making body of the Local Scouting Movement, recognizes all these contributions and strongly supports the nomination of Sctr.. Edwin J. Piano to the National Search of Ten Outstanding Councilors of the Philippines.
NOW, THEREFORE, with the unanimous accord of all the members present, be it;
RESOLVED, AS IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED, by the James L. Gordon Local Council Executive Committee in a session assembled to express strong support and endorse as it hereby STRONGLY ENDORSES THE NOMINATION OF CITY COUNCILOR EDWIN J.
