“Binabalanse natin ang safety ng mahigit sa 3 milyon na katao sa Probinsya ng Pangasinan at ekonomiya, kasama na ang peace and order, dahil na rin sa sitwasyon ng ating probinsya. Kung kaya’t andito kami na magbibigay ng serbisyo sa inyo. Hindi po namin hinihigpitan, binabalanse po namin kung paano maging ligtas ang buong probinsya ng Pangasinan,” Governor Amado I.
