Two Paranaque barangays back PGMA
Manila (24 February) -- Calling President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as the "bridge and guide" who steers the country's future to loftier economic development, officials, businessmen and residents of two Parañanque City barangays presented to the Chief Executive this afternoon a Manifesto of Support during her visit to the Baclaran Elementary School Central (BESC) along Pinaglabanan St. in Bgy. Baclaran, Parañaque City.
It was signed by Dondon Cailles and Willy dela Cruz, chairmen of Barangays Baclaran and Tambo, respectively, and other officials, businessmen and residents of the two barangays.
The manifesto affirmed the full support of the local officials for the President despite the "amount of exposes or any contravening plans" against her administration.
They also urged other sectors of society not to be swayed by the political noise generated by anti-government forces, and instead "blend with the common majority to be with you and together, be united for a common purpose for the greater good of country and people."
The President visited BESC to facilitate the distribution of food packs to some 5,000 residents who came out in droves to get a glimpse of and, hopefully, meet the Chief Executive in person.
The food packs contained basic food items such as rice, coffee, noodles and canned goods and was distributed to each family who took time to line up for the goods.
Before distributing the food packs, the President took a brief tour of the BESC, where members of a medical and dental team were attending to residents of the two barangays.
Through the mission, residents in the area have been enabled to gain easy access to medical and dental health services as well as affordable and even free medicines for their ailments.
The medical-dental mission is a project of the People's Government Mobile Action (PGMA) and the local government of Parañaque City. (OPS) [top]
