MINALIN -- Senatorial candidate Nancy Binay vowed Saturday to carry on the tradition of good governance and helping local government units achieve their development goals started by her father Vice President Jejomar Binay.
The eldest daughter of the Vice President led and represented the inauguration of a P500,000 senior citizens building here, together with Mayor Arturo Naguit, Mayor Peter Flores of Masantol, Mayor Leonora Capule-Wong of San Simon, congressional aspirant Mayor Jerry Pelayo of Candaba, and fourth district Representative Anna York Bondoc-Sagum.
"Kung papalarin po tayo ay ipagpapatuloy ko ang nasimulan at patuloy an ginagawa ng aking amang si Vice President Binay tulad ng pagbibigay ng tulong sa ating mga kababayan kagaya ng senior citizen's building an ito. He also promised that this building will be fitted with the necessary equipment and amenities for out senior citizens," Binay said.
She said she will look into improving investments in the country, as well as further boost the agri-industrial sector.
"It is through that, coupled with education and a host of other social programs I hope to bring to the Senate, that we could help our fellow Filipinos and leaders, like for example, transforming Minalin into perhaps a first class municipality in the near future. At isa pa po, hindi kasi dapat na ginagamit ang IRA (internal revenue allotment) an pang-ipit sa mga local government units like this town sa kanilang nais na pagsulong at pag-unlad," Binay said.
Naguit, for his part, thanked the Binays for always assisting Minalin in its needs. (Jovi T. De Leon)
