National Unity Party (NUP) President Elpidio Barzaga Jr. on Wednesday filed his certificate of candidacy for reelection as representative of the Lone District of Dasmariñas City, Cavite.
Barzaga, chairman of the House committee on natural resources, vowed “to continue the delivery of an improved healthcare system, peace and order and generate jobs” as among his priorities in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I am committed to continue serving my district through our compassionate projects. We have to further improve our healthcare programs to fight the pandemic and immediately respond to the needs of my constituents, including livelihood projects,” Barzaga, a CPA-lawyer and veteran lawmaker, said.
“I want to continue the programs I have already started and see to the implementation of plans that have been drafted for a more progressive Dasmarinas.”
Barzaga is well-loved by his constituents primarily due to his effective and clean governance and his pro-poor programs, including free hospitalization at the Pagamutan ng Dasmariñas, free burial service and cremation, among other compassionate projects.
He also served as mayor of Dasmariñas before, the post presently occupied by his wife, reelectionist Mayor Jenny Austria Barzaga.
