Pagsanjan Mayor Cesar Areza recently led the ceremonial ribbon cutting inauguration of the Tingog party-list satellite office at the CLA mall to bring the needs of his countrymen closer to the government.
Areza also partnered with the Department of Labor and Employment, which provided their livelihood business packages (Pagkabuhayan Packages) worth P2.6 million, while P2.7 million was provided for TUPAD beneficiaries in Pagsanjan.
Tingog party-list nominee “Momshie” Karla Estrada, consultant on social services and promotion office from the office of House Speaker Martin Romualdez, joined DOLE Region 4A Director Exequiel Ronie A. Guzman at the event.
DOLE and Tingog granted the 620 Tupad beneficiaries a presentation of their livelihood benefits in front of officials and leaders from Pagsanjan’s barangays.
“This is just the start of the help we will extend to our kababayan,” Areza said.
“We have brought Serbisyo Arangkada Areza closer to you with the help of our friends in the government, who will be our partners in meeting your needs. That’s why I always say ‘Negosyo Palakasin, Trabaho Paramihin (Strengthen Business, Boost Jobs).’”
Estrada was recently appointed as consultant on Social Services and Promotions of the Office of Speaker Martin Romualdez and the party.
Tingog Rep. Yedda Romualdez said that Karla is aiming to continue her love and passion for serving other people’s needs by bringing the government’s social service programs to the grassroots community.
“To support the Speaker’s social welfare reform initiatives, Karla Estrada is mandated to coordinate with different government and non-government agencies for possible partnership and implementation of various social services programs and to create information drive campaigns for the projects and programs implemented,” said Rep. Romualdez. Roy Tomandao
She added that crisis intervention programs, hospital patient assistance, self-employment assistance, children in need of special protections, aid to persons with disability, and the program for elders, women, and out-of-school youth are some of Karla’s focus.
Tingog landed in the third spot among the 55 winning party-list groups.
It secured two congressional seats out of the 62 seats for Rep. Yedda Romualdez and Rep. Jude Acidre.
