January 4, 2023

Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Spokesperson, Undersecretary Anna Mae Yu Lamentillo, ranked first in a survey among spokespersons of various government agencies.


Lamentillo, DICT’s Undersecretary for Public Affairs and Foreign Relations, received a rating of 88%, followed by Office of the Press Secretary (OPS) Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Cheloy Velicaria-Garafil (86%), Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersecretary Margarita Gutierrez (84%), Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Undersecretary Goddess Hope Libiran (83%), and Department of Health (DOH) OIC-Undersecretary Beverly Ho (82%).


Completing the top ten are Department of Justice (DOJ) Assistant Secretary Mico Clavano (80%), Department of Education (DepEd) Spokesperson Atty. Mike Poa (78%), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) OIC Edu Punay (75%), Department of Agriculture (DA) Assistant Secretary Kristine Evangelista (73%), and Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) Undersecretary Patricia Caunan (70%).


President Marcos, Vice President Duterte, and cabinet members earned outstanding evaluations for their overall job performance in the RP Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD) "Boses ng Bayan" national survey for the year 2022. It confirms that their spokespeople effectively communicated government goals, initiatives, and policies, said Dr. Paul Martinez of RPMD.


Lamentillo, who topped the survey, said that the result of the survey, where the spokespersons of the various government agencies received high ratings, serves as an affirmation that the public appreciates the job that government communicators are doing.


Last December, the Office of the Press Secretary organized a gathering among various communications representatives from different government agencies and departments with the aim of harmonizing the government's communication strategies to effectively deliver relevant and supplementary information for the Filipino people.
