ANGELES City Councilor and mayoralty aspirant Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. has vowed to continue the legacy of his father, former mayor and congressman Carmelo Tarzan Lazatin.
The oppositionist councilor issued the statement during his visit in Barangay Capaya last January 16.
Lazatin vowed to bring back basic quality services in honor of his father.
He talked about his platform, which focuses on the improvement of barangay health centers by providing free medicines, free college tuition in City College of Angeles, the establishment of new road networks to address the growing traffic congestion, and the creation of the city’s own landfill.
During the caucus, Lazatin also thanked the residents for extending their support to the Lazatins.
Joining Lazatin, Jr. in the said caucus was his brother, First District Representative Carmelo “Jon Jon” Lazatin II who is currently running for a second term.
Lazatin, Jr. said that having close ties between the mayor and the first district representative is beneficial to the city as it makes national projects more accessible.
