Local Government Unit headed by Mayor Eulogio Clarence Martin P. de Guzman III bagged the 2017 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) award for the second time. The first time was last 2015. Out of 19 towns and one city of la Union, only nine towns were the awardees: Bacnotan, Bangar, Bauang, Burgos, Caba, Pugo, San Gabriel, Santo Tomas and Tubao. In Region I, three provinces, 8 cities and 57 municipalities were the awardees.

SGLG symbolizes integrity and good performance through continuing governance reform and sustained local development. It is a progressive assessment system adopted by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) to give distinction to remarkable local government performance across several areas. 

For 2017, DILG raised its overall assessment criteria from “3+1” into “4+1”. Peace and Order has been added to the core areas: Financial Administration, Disaster Preparedness and Social Protection. This year a new essential area, Tourism, Culture and the arts are introduced. These areas include: Finacial Administration, Social Protection, Disaster Preparedness and Cultural Preservation aligned with the principle of “Malasakit” (Enhancing the Social Fabric). The areas of Business Friendliness and Tourism support economic growth with the principle of “Pagbabago” (Reducing Inequality) while Peace and Order and Environment Management are strategies for “Patuloy na Pag-unlad” (Increasing Growth Potential). There were 81 provinces, 145 cities and 1,489 municipalities which underwent the SGLG assessment. Awardees of the 2017 Seal are eligible to access the Performance Challenge Fund.
