2 May 2013

After visiting Tarlac, President Benigno S. Aquino III continued to carry forward his administration’s good governance in a meeting with local leaders and the community of Lingayen, Pangasinan.

President Aquino said that he will never be tired in reaching the Filipino people as he gains strength seeing a lot of Filipinos supporting his crusade for ‘tuwid na daan’. “Ngayong umaga, lalo lang akong ginaganahang kumayod at magtrabaho, dahil kaharap ko ang mga Pangasinenseng talaga namang malapit sa aking puso,” he mentioned.

Part of the administration’s program for the province is agricultural development, infrastructure rehabilitation and social services. He cited the completion of the Poblacion- Quinaoayanan farm-to-market project and the 12 irrigation systems that will benefit 1,500 farmers of Pangasinan.

For infrastructure development he mentioned the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway Project that will speed up the travel time of approximately 13,000 motorists per day, after the completion of Section 1 from Tarlac City to Rosales, Pangasinan.

Moreover, he cited the ongoing rehabilitation of the Lingayen Airport and Sual Port to further improve the quality of service to the people. Surpassing the 105,000 target for the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4P’s), he proudly announced that they were able to register 114,000 household beneficiaries in Pangasinan.

At the end of his message, the President reminded the Pangasinenses to vote for public servants that will help the administration in pursuing his goal for good governance.
