When elected to the Senate, Legarda reveals her priorities.
Loren Legarda, the Antique Lone District Representative, has outlined her priorities if she is elected to the Senate in May 2022.
Legarda is a senatorial candidate with the UniTeam, which also includes presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and vice-presidential candidate Sara Duterte of Davao City.
Legarda said she wants to make sure that the target receivers of the One Tablet, One Student Act of 2021 obtain their needed device while speaking to Antique political leaders at the Lieberman Gymnasium for the launch of her campaign in the Pandan municipality on Tuesday.
In the midst of this health crisis, the bill she crafted will help about 26 million students taking online programs across the country.
She also looked at revising the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Law so that it could be implemented at the barangay level to help job seekers find work.
Legarda also promised to seek increased funding for the execution of Republic Act 9501, popularly known as the Magna Carta for Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Law, so that more entrepreneurs can receive help and possibilities for livelihood.
“I’d like to make sure that the other laws that I authored are properly implemented and funded,” she said.
During the ceremony, political leaders in the province also declared their entire support of Legarda’s senatorial bid.
“The Antiquenos support Congresswoman Legarda’s senatorial bid with prayer and love,” Governor Rhodora J. Cadiao said in her message, adding that Legarda is the pride of Antique, having served as a senator and congresswoman.
Noel Alamis, a board member, said Legarda has been a blessing to Antique because of the projects she has invested in her home province.
He also emphasized improvements at the Angel Salazar Memorial General Hospital (ASMGH), which is the provincial hospital located here, as well as the creation of a Molecular Laboratory to do RT-PCR tests now that the pandemic has begun.
For the senate candidate, Alamis wrote two campaign jingles.
Pandan Mayor Plaridel Sanchez described Legarda’s decision to launch her campaign in their municipality as a wonderful honor, and he asked all of his residents to demonstrate their support.
Legarda promised the Antiquenos that if elected, she would never abandon them and would be ready to serve the country.
“I will be eternally grateful to you,” she stated to her fellow Antiquenos.
Legarda stated that she selected Pandan to launch her campaign because it was there that she took her first oath as a senator in 1998.
Legarda lives in Pandan’s Barangay Mag-aba.
