Bulacan solon assures
SAN JOSE DEL MONTE CITY, Bulacan —Representative Rida Robes has assured an “overwhelming victory” for former presidential frontrunner Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. and leading vice presidential candidate Davao Cty Mayor Sara Duterte in the city in the coming May 9, 2022 elections.
Robes together with her husband, SJDM Mayor Arthur Robes, gave a rousing welcome to Duterte when she visited the city Saturday for her “Sara para sa Barangay” campaign where she met with local and sectoral officials in Bulacan.
“They will win because in our survey BBM is at 61 percent, Mayor Inday is 53 percent. There is no doubt that they will win because they have the people’s support. You just can feel it and they openly show their support to the Uniteam. More than 80 percent will vote here. They will win overwhelmingly here,” Robes said.
The SJDM lawmaker also earlier met with Marcos in his headquarters in Mandaluyong City last Friday in which she pledged her support for him saying he will be a good leader because he has a good heart.
“Alam natin kung ano ang kailangan ng tao. You have a good heart. You can really lead the country. All we have to do is support you, to let the people vote for you. For all of us here in our own districts, we have to make this campaign real,” she said.
Meanwhile, Robes said 21 Bulacan mayors have expressed their support to the BBM-Sara Uniteam.
Thirteen of them signed a manifesto of support for Marcos and Duterte. Some of the signatories are Mayors Arthur Robes of SJDM, Eladio Gonzales Jr. of Balagtas, Jose Santiago Jr. of Bocaue, Francis Albert Juan of Bustos, Ricky Silvestre of Marilao, Mary Ann Marcos of Paombong, Roderick Tiongson of San Miguel, Cipriano Violago Jr. of San Rafael, Raulito Manlapaz of Hagonoy, Edwin Santos of Obando, Russel Pleyto of Sta. Maria, Narding de Leon of Angat, Ferdie Estrella of Baliuag and Vergel Meneses of Bulakan.
