Angara vows to continue pushing for pro-people programs
Coming in sixth place in the recent 2019 senatorial pre-election poll, Senator Sonny Angara on Saturday vowed to boost efforts in pushing for more programs to benefit the Filipino people.
“Ako po ay lubos na nagpapasalamat sa patuloy na pagtitiwala sa akin ng ating mga kababayan,” he said in a statement.
In a recent nationwide pre-election survey of the Pulse Asia, Angara garnered 37.1 percent of voter preference.
The senator promised to increase efforts in pushing for free quality education, healthcare, good-paying job opportunities for Filipinos and support for senior citizens.
“Magsisilbi po itong inspirasyon upang lalo nating pagsikapan at isulong ang mga pangangailangan ng bawat pamilyang Pilipino mula sa libreng de-kalidad na edukasyon, tulong pangkalusugan, oportunidad na magkaroon ng disenteng trabaho na may sapat na kita, at suporta sa ating mga senior citizen,” he added.
The Sept. 1-7 survey used face-to-face interviews with 1,800 registered voters as respondents. /jpv
