IN THE quest to deliver a win for presidential candidate Vice President Leni Robredo and runningmate Senator Kiko Pangilinan in the coming polls, volunteers from the City of San Fernando and different areas in Pampanga are set to launch a grand house-to-house campaign on April 23.
The event, which coincides with the birth date of Robredo, aims to convince still undecided voters, and convert those who are leaning toward the rivals of the Robredo-Pangilinan tandem.
According to engineer Arnel Sicat, member of the Robredo-Pangilinan People’s Council, some 10,000 volunteers from the city alone have committed to join the campaign, which will be a simultaneous nationwide activity.
“From 6:30 ng umaga, iinaasahan na 10,000 volunteers mula sa siyudad San Fernando ang magmomobilize for the house-to-house para mangumbinsi ng mga soft voters at iyong mga undecided pa sa kanila boto sa darating na eleksyon,” he said.
Sicat said the volunteers will be laying out the programs and projects implemented by Robredo before and during her political career, her platforms for governance, and credentials in every house that they will visit.
“Itong kampanyang ito ay gagawin natin tao-sa-tao at puso-sa-puso dahil kailangan natin ipaintindi sa tao ang importansya ng eleksyon na ito at ang paghalal ng mga lider na mangunguna sa atin at sa ating bansa sa darating na mga taon,” he added.
Meanwhile, mayoralty candidate Oscar Rodriguez, a vocal supporter of the Robredo-Pangilinan tandem, also pledged his support for the nationwide activity.
“Ang kampanyang ito ay malaking bagay sa kagustuhan natin na maipanalo si VP Leni at Senator Kiko dahil tayo ay didiretso sa mga tao at kakausap mismo sa mga tao. Sa bolunterismo at pagkakaisa ng mga tao, tayo ang magpapanalo sa laban na ito ng ating bayan,” Rodriguez said.
Online to ground work
Among the groups that pledged support for the activity are the Team Magsilbi Tamu, Solid Online Campaign Action (OCA) Force, Leni-Kikolasas, and Solid Leni Pilipinas-Pampanga Chapter.
Leni-Kikolasas Convenor Pritszelle Faustino said they are joining the activity to let fellow Fernandinos and Kapampangans know and understand the platforms of Robredo in a personal level.
“Hindi na pwede na kami na lang mga Kakampink ang nag-uusap-usap. Kailangan lumabas na para mas makareach ng mga tao na hindi pa alam o naiintindihan kung bakit si VP Leni dapat ang ating kandidato,” she said.
Solid Online Campaign Action (OCA) Force head Edcel Torres, for her part, said that her group will convert their efforts online to in-person campaign.
“Puspusan na po kami sa online pero kailangan i-expand ang efforts natin sa in-person campaign. Ginagawa na rin naman po ito ng iba nating kasama before pero ngayon po sasama tayo sa malawakang house-to-house campaign para palakasin pa itong kampanya para kay VP Leni at Senator Kiko,” she said.
