LIKE the strength and smoothness of their famous “barako” coffee, Batanguenos expressed their full warmth and solid support for comebacking senator Bong Revila during his campaign caravan in key areas of the province.
No less than Cong. Eileen Ermita-Buhain herself endorsed and assured Revilla that her fellow Batanguenos will support Revilla’s candidacy.
Revilla’s campaign caravan moved at a slow pace as it traversed the streets of Batangas due to the heavy volume of supporters who patiently waited to see the veteran legislator in person.
Part of his primary legislative platform is to provide a decent salary for teachers, nurses, barangay health workers and other members of the labor sector.
Revilla vows that if given a chance to return to the Senate, he will double his accomplishments in his previous terms. He has authored 614 bills, 223 of which have been passed into law.
The crowd rendered roaring applause when Revilla reminded them to look for his name in the No. 16 slot in their ballots, because he was “16” when he fell in love with his wife, Bacoor City Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla.
