January is past its mid-month. At last I am done with the evaluation of the barangays in my area of coverage. It was not required of me but I extended an extra mile to conduct an evaluation in order that the barangay officials will know of the things required of them to be done. It pays to visit them to spur them into action. I found out they still have to work some more in order to comply with what is mandated of them. And, more importantly, the evaluation keeps them on track.
