Nearly two weeks before the national elections, President Benigno S. Aquino III urged the local residents of Lucban to vote on leaders who will prolong the developments being delivered in their province of Quezon.
In his speech, President Aquino enumerated a few of these developments which can only be honed if the elected officials bear the same goals as that of the administration. Among these are the construction of the following road projects: the eight-kilometer Lucena Diversion Talao-Talao Port Road, the 60-kilometer SLEX extension from Batangas to Lucena and the 16 farm-to-market roads in the towns of Calauag, Gumaca, Quezon and Tagkawayan. He also mentioned further the allocation of P82 million for the completion of 18 irrigation projects.
“Ang katuparan ng kolektibong pangarap ng lahat ng taga-Quezon ay magmumula sa pagkukusa ng bawat isa sa inyong makisagwan tungo sa patas at matiwasay na daan. At sa darating na halalan, nananalig po akong hindi ninyo sasayangin ang pagkakataon para piliin ang mga karapat-dapat ninyong pinuno,” he said.
Joining the President during the event were Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel Roxas III, Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala and former Senate President Franklin Drilon.
