Kay Gob. Espino, panalo tayo
Ex-Sen. Shahani Endorses Espino
ASINGAN-- "My candidate is Governor Amado Espino Jr. for Governor of Pangasinan." Thus declared Former Senator Leticia-Ramos Shahani in her hometown Asingan during the town's Barangay Night celebration last April 23rd.
He has truly helped the different towns of the province big time, Shahani described Espino during her speech guest of honor and speaker.
Espino worked hard “following the DILG standard of good government so we captured some of the leading awards of governance in Region,” she added.
The former lawmaker encouraged the townspeople to vote for Espino as well as her son, Ranjit, and Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Calimlim Jr. to continue the progress so that “we will always be proud as Pangasinenses.”
Shahani further said, “May you continue to help our town be a happy place to live in and may you also continue to make Pangasinan one of the greatest provinces in the country.”
Meanwhile, Espino thanked Shahani and remarked, "I and my family will always remember this very night that you are endorsing me."
Sen. Shahani who turned as an agriculturalist after public service, further noted that the provincial government under the stewardship of Espino has prioritized the agricultural sector.
At present, Pangasinan tops rice and corn production in the whole country, Espino cited.
The Governor asserted, “Pangasinan will remain as an agricultural province in the next three or four decades.” With that, Espino urged the people to continue caring for the province’s natural resources. Despite the absence of economic zone, industrial facilities, support facilities, seaport, and airport, we're now number 4- from being 68th- in the entire Philippines for wisely using our natural resources, the Governor said, “Hindi kakulangan ang wala tayo ng mga ‘yon, the mere fact na nandyan lahat ang magagandang binigay ng Diyos sa atin- our natural resources- then we must harness that and we will grow as a province, and as a people,” he explained.
Likewise, Shahani stated, “Pangasinan is a province which has everything.” Other personalities present in the event were Calimlim, Board Member (BM) Ranjit Shahani, BM Alfonso Bince Jr., and BM Salvador Perez Jr.; all are in support of the reelection bid of the Governor.
Asingan is composed of 21 barangays headed by Mayor Heidi Chua and Liga ng mga Barangay President Crispin Villanueva.
