City Government at the City of Dipolog | PhilippinesAs City Councilor of Dipolog since 2016, Marilou Calibo has been working on policies that promote and enhance the capacity of individuals and families to harness their potentials and improve their well-being. She believes that this is crucial for them to become resilient and be able to take their share in making the city sustainable. Giving the children and youth access to quality education and employment and providing appropriate opportunities for the informal sectors in the communities to gain enough income are of great value in making them thrive in the long term. Marilou believes that along with providing all citizens an enabling environment to improve their well-being, the conservation and proper management of the city’s ecological systems should also be done. Thus, she also actively supports her colleagues in enacting ordinances on this matter.
