There could be no better man!

Ang kusog sa panggamhanan nagagikan sa katawhan.

There can be no better man to represent the people of the 1st District of South Cotabato than someone who believes in the people that he represents, and who has faith in the potentials for greatness that lies in every individual in General Santos City and in the Municipalities of Polomolok, Tampakan and Tupi.

There can be no better man than PEDRO B. ACHARON, JR. to be  our Congressman for the 1st District of South Cotabato.

This three-termer Local Chief Executive of General Santos City is an epitome of a true General.  Elected as City Councilor in 1992 at his first try in politics and was re-elected to the same office in 1995 with the highest number of votes.  In 1998, he was overwhelmingly elected as the City Vice-Mayor. He was sworn as the 10th City Mayor in 2001 when the position was declared vacant.  In the 2001, 2004 and 2007 local elections, he was reaffirmed by the Generals as the City Mayor.

The people’s trust and confidence in his leadership was founded on history and destiny.  Mayor Jun Acharon comes from a long line of public servants.  His father, Pedro A. Acharon, Sr. was the 2nd Mayor of then the Municipality of Rajah Buayan. While his brother Antonio C. Acharon was the 5th Chief Executive and the mayor with the longest service record of the City of General Santos.  Another brother, the late Jacinto C. Acharon was the holder of the longest term as City Councilor.

He is a civil engineer by profession and a graduate of Cebu Institute of Technology.  He is very active with religious organization and civic clubs including the Rotary Club.  A recipient of numerous awards of distinction, among which are the “Outstanding City Councilor of the New Republic of the Philippines”, “Most Outstanding City Vice-Mayor of the Philippines”, and the “International Humanitarian Award.”

Married of the former Miss Rosalinda V. Abinion of Cebu, they are blessed with five children – 3 boys and 2 girls.

Within the core of his administration’s thrust is the holistic and comprehensive Magandang Gensan through Social and Community Transformation, Human Resource Development, Economic Diversification, Environmental Regeneration and Participatory Governance.

His service-driven conviction that was instrumental in the city’s tremendous urbanization rate can be  advantageous for the people of the district in the coming years.  With PBA representing us in Congress, a future that is Progressive, Beneficial and Assured awaits us.
