Geronimo said she has seen the sincerity in Angara’s service to the nation.
“Marami na siyang nagawa at naniniwala ako na marami pa siyang magagawa, maitutulong para sa ikauunlad at ikaasenso ng ating bayan at para matugunan ang pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan,” the singer-actress said.
Geronimo said her relationship with Angara is more than just being his endorser.
“Hindi lang pag-endorso, pagsuporta ang sa amin,” Geronimo said.
The talented showbiz personality recalled how her family became close with the Angara family.
“Simula pa noong 2007, noong inindorso ko si (late) Senator Edgardo Angara, ang educator, simula noon, nagkaroon ng magandang relasyon ang pamilya namin, ever since. Nakita ko kung gaano ka-thoughtful, generous si Tito Ed,” Geronimo said.
The actress recalled how the late senator, father of Sonny, told her mother Divine to convince her to study.
“Lagi niyang kinakausap si Mommy, ‘Mommy Divine, si Sarah kailangan magtapos iyan sa pag-aaral ha,'” Geronimo said, quoting the older Angara.
She said his Tito Ed was one of her inspirations.
“Iyan po ang aking goal sa aking buhay, ang makapagtapos ng pag-aaral,” Geronimo added.
“Inaanyayahan ko kayo na sana suportahan muli at tulungan niyo kami na ibalik sa Senado si Senator Sonny Angara,” Geronimo said.
For his part, Angara thanked Geronimo for supporting his candidacy.
Angara also thanked the local officials and the Batangueños for their support.
