CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- Broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez, wife of vice presidential bet Senator Mar Roxas, lauded Tuesday the Provincial and City Government for their manifestation of support to her husband’s bid.

Sanchez made a courtesy call to local Liberal Party (LP) stalwart Mayor Oscar Rodriguez at City Hall after making a sortie around the city and the province.

The two discussed the recent debate where Senator Roxas came face to face with Nacionalista Party vice-presidential bet Loren Legarda and on-going projects of Rodriguez and the City Government.

“I am very grateful to Mayor Rodriguez for the support he and the city have been giving Mar (Roxas). It’s really a good time to see Mayor Rodriguez after a long time since we worked years ago on many projects like the health bill and education,” Sanchez said.

She said she has been to some 30 towns and her stopover in the city is a focal point of her sorties for the senator before moving to the Marcos stronghold up north.

“Reactions of Kapampangans are filled with hope. And the good thing is that these translate to numbers,” she said, adding that Senator Roxas is not in any way threatened by other bets since he is goal-oriented and focuses mostly on programs ahead in his platform.

For his part, Rodriguez said the visit of Sanchez will bolster the local party’s move, including the opening salvo on Friday.

“Definitely, the visit of one very pretty lady like Korina, the wife of Mar is a big boost to our bid. I am thankful she found time to join us,” he said.

He added that the “Magsilbi Tamu” team is up and ready for the campaign trail, which will start on March 26. (JTD)
