Mayor Toby Tiangco on Monday endorsed to his constituents the candidacy of Nacionalista Party senatorial bet Bongbong Marcos during the flag ceremony at the Navotas City Hall.
“Ibalik natin sa senado ang mga taong may talino at kakayahan na mapaunlad ang ating bansa,” said Tiangco, whose wife Michelle is Bongbong’s cousin.
He also told his constituents some of Bongbong’s accomplishments as local executive in Ilocos Norte.
“Maraming parte ng bansa ang nakakaranas ng energy crisis at rice shortage pero hindi ang Ilocos Norte dahil sa mga proyekto at programa ni Bongbong,” said Tiangco.
The wind farm in Bangui, Ilocos Norte – the first of its kind in the Philippines and the biggest in Southeast Asia – is a brainchild of Bongbong.
It generates around 25 megawatts of power or an equivalent of 40-percent of the province’s energy requirement.
Ilocos Norte also produces 300-percent of its rice requirements mainly because of Bongbong’s initiative to focus on rice farming.
Tiangco proceeded to accompany Bongbong in a motorcade around Navotas.
Bongbong for his part promised to be the voice of local government units in the national government.
“Ilalapit po natin muli sa mga karaniwang mamamayan ang ating pamahalaan,” said Bongbong.
