Mayor gives outgoing task force chief 9.5 grade


DAVAO City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio gave the outgoing Task Force Davao (TFD) chief Wednesday an outstanding grade of 9.5, with 10 as the highest.
Duterte-Carpio said the City Government was pleased with the performance of Colonel Rey Leonardo Guerero, who assumed the TFD post from Colonel Oscar Lactao on August 24, 2010.
Guerero is set to officially turn over the command to Army Colonel Marcus Norman Flores on February 25.
The mayor thanked Guerero for keeping the city safe and free from any terrorist threat.
"Your success will be measured pag-humana imung serbisyo (once you are done with your service)," the mayor said when asked of her tips for the incoming TFD chief.
Flores, who like Guerrero is a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class 1984, is commander of the Army's 61st Infantry Battalion based in Capiz.
After Guerrero's stint in Davao City, he will be assigned as commander of the Army's 701st Infantry Brigade in Caraga Region.
The Task Force Davao is military unit created in 2003 tasked to prevent terrorist attacks similar to the airport and Sasa wharf bombings in Davao City in March and April 2003, respectively that killed 38 people and injured several others.
