Romero lauds de Venecia
By Mortz C. Ortigoza
MANGALDAN – The mayor here hailed Rep.Gina de Venecia (4th District, Pangasinan) for making this town the first recipient of the PhilHealth cards worth P1.2 million.
Mayor Herminio Romero said that 505 poor family members have been the recipient of the P1.2 million cards that came from de Venecia’s Priority Development Assistance Fund. “This is good for two years and Manay Gina said she will increase the 505 recipients,” Romero announced to the hundreds of residents that came from different village who attended the distribution at the stadia of a public school here.
The mayor said this burgeoning town is the favorite of the solon because the mayor and the people here gave her the biggest votes compared to the city of Dagupan and the towns of San Fabian, San Jacinto, and Manaoag against her opponent in the 2010 congressional election.
“Because of her a lot of government projects have been brought here. Look at the P22 million fish building that came from her PDAF that edifice is the most beautiful fish building in the entire province!”.
Meanwhile, Rep. de Venecia has given P50 thousand to Barangay Salaan through its village chief Cesar Junatas . She said she gave the sum because Salaan gave here 100% votes in the 2010 election.
Brgy. Salaan, according to the former chieftain there, has more than thousand of votes.
“Kaya bilang pasasalamat, gusto kong tawagin si Kapitan Cesar Junatas para ibigay ang aking munting handog. Ito po ay cash money, worth 50 thousand na puwede niyong gamitin sa kasayahan o anumang proyekto na nais nyong paglaanan ng pondo. Gusto kong bigyang-diin, na ito ay hindi premyo dahil alam kong hindi kayang tumbasan ng materyal na bagay ang inyong katapatan. Sa halip, ito ay isang munting bonus lamang, mula sa amin ng inyong Kuya Joe, dahil ang talagang handog namin sa inyo ay ang pag-aalay ng aming buhay bilang inyong mga lingkod. At umasa po kayo, na habang kami’y nabubuhay, ang inyong pagmamahal ay susuklian namin, ng Serbisyong Walang Hanggan”.
The congresswoman said she interceded also for funds from the Department of Agriculture to bankroll the farm-to-market roads in Barangays Amansabina, Macayug, Banaoang, Guiguilonen, Embarcadero, Alitaya, Nibalew, Buenlag, at Guesang.
