FORMER president and now House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is wishing her sister-in-law, Ma. Lourdes Arroyo-Lesaca, to be a successful congresswoman.
“We're very proud of her and I hope that she will be a successful congresswoman,” said Arroyo, who was in Negros Occidental on Friday, January 18.
Arroyo-Lesaca is running unopposed as congresswoman of the Fifth District of the province.
“I hope to fulfill everybody's wish and I would like to really make a difference in the Fifth District. I would like to finish my brother's unfinished plans and I hope the dreams of the people of the Fifth District would come true in my future leadership,” Arroyo-Lesaca said.
Her brother, the late Ignacio Arroyo Jr., was a congressman of the district.
Lesaca-Arroyo was with Speaker Arroyo on Friday in what she calls her “sentimental journey” to the province where she made a run through of her flagship projects that were implemented when she was the president of the country.
Meanwhile, Arroyo- Lesaca also urged the voters to cast their votes in the May 13 elections to be able to manifest their choice for the kind of leaders they wanted to serve them.
She also assured that she will bring their concerns to Malacañang when she will officially sit down as representative of the Fifth District in Congress.
