President Benigno S. Aquino III cited a few of the successful programs and projects being implemented in Laguna, as he paid a visit to San Pablo City.
In his speech, the President mentioned the inclusion of 40 sitios in the Sitio Electrification Program by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Electrification Administration (NEA), as well as the addition of 12,400 households in the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.
President Aquino cited the National Economic Development Authority’s (NEDA) approval of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway and the P5 billion priority flood control projects including the raising of nearby lands and the reconstruction of river systems streaming to Laguna de Bay.
He added that despite the positive changes the country has been undergoing, there is still a need for true servant leaders, as he individually introduced Laguna’s political aspirants this coming election.
“Nakasalalay po sa resulta ng darating na halalan ang pagpapatuloy ng ating mga reporma. Kung sa tingin ninyo, tama ang direksyong tinutungo natin, tulungan niyo kaming patibayin pa ang pundasyon ng matuwid na pamamahala,” he said.
