He has authored 408 bills and resolutions in the 19th Congress, each focusing on various sectors, including education, human rights, environmental protection, health, and more. While Rep. Suan advocates for the welfare of all Filipinos across the country, he also takes an extra step to ensure the progress and development of CDO.

Among his initiatives was proposing House Bill 8881 to the 19th Congress, which aims to declare the City of Cagayan de Oro as the whitewater rafting capital of the Philippines. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg regarding what Rep. Suan achieved in the previous year.

Moreover, before 2023 ended, he filed House Bill No. 9749, seeking to require e-wallet providers and electronic fund transfer service providers to waive these fees for small amounts to “encourage wider adoption and usage of e-wallets among low-income and unbanked Filipinos.”

His social services programs resulted in having 43,236 beneficiaries. Moreover, he focused on various infrastructure projects to promote safety, security, and economic development within his jurisdiction.

Using the allotted budget, Rep. Suan used P527.6 million to establish multi-purpose buildings, P1.995 billion for road concreting and safety devices, and P1.89 billion for flood control and drainages.

When driving along Baungon Road in Barangay Lumbia, Cagayan de Oro, locals and tourists can see his contribution through a P19 million streetlight project to illuminate the path for transport vehicles to ensure passenger safety and secure the city’s continuing progress.

In the meantime, his constituents can feel his endeavors through the multi-purpose buildings Rep. Suan funded for various barangays, including Barangay Balulang, Barangay Canitoan, and Barangay Dansolihon, among other locations.

Citations and awards for his hard work

Rep. Suan’s efforts didn’t go unnoticed. The “Boses ng Bayan” independent, non-commissioned performance assessment survey, conducted by RP-Mission and Development Foundation, Inc. (RPMD) from Feb. 25 to March 8, 2023, cited him as among the top-performing neophyte lawmakers in the Philippines. He received an 88.4 percent performance score, landing in a statistical tie for third place among 126 other novice representatives in the country.

CDO’s First District Rep. Suan also received other awards, including Asia’s Modern Hero Awards, Top Performing Congressman in Northern Mindanao, and among the Top 5 Performing Congressman in the Philippines.

His constituents are firsthand witnesses of the advantages of having Rep. Suan as their voice in the 19th Congress of the House of Representatives. Despite his young age, the lawmaker proved he’s more than capable of answering the public’s call for good governance that will lead them to a bountiful future.

Only time will tell the full impact of Rep. Suan’s political career. However, his journey from lawyer to city councilor to district representative already represents a remarkable ascent. His dedication to improving the lives of Cagayan de Oro residents through legislation, community engagement, and a clear vision for the future highlights his ability as a leader with the potential to leave a lasting legacy on the city and beyond.
