ISKO MORENO MEETS ZAMBALES RESIDENTS, FISHERFOLKS

Aksyon Demokratiko presidential bet Manila Mayor Isko Moreno met with fisherfolk and various groups in Zambales on Thursday as part of his listening tour.

In the seaside town of Botolan in Zambales, Moreno vowed to stand up against foreign incursion in the West Philippine Sea and secure the livelihood of fisherfolk residing on the country’s western coast.

Moreno was accompanied by Zambales vice gubernatorial aspirant Jaqueline Khonghun, and senatorial aspirants Doc Willie Ong, Samira Gutoc, Carl Balita and Jopet Sison.

“We will be fearless in fighting for what is ours. We will insist the Hague Ruling. But at the same time as being fearless, we are going to be fair with our discussion and management of the situation on both sides,” he said.

“We will be faithful to our farmers and fisherfolks. Ang mga mangingisda, dapat makapangisda sa loob ng ating teritoryo sa dagat. At iyon ang magaganap: undeterred, peaceful, and productive fishing opportunities under our rules,” he said.

Moreno was accompanied by Zambales vice gubernatorial aspirant Jaqueline Khonghun, Doc Willie Ong, Samira Gutoc, Carl Balita and Jopet Sison.

Khonghun said the country needs Moreno’s brand of leadership, which takes off from his experience with poverty and hardship. 

“Kailangan natin ng lider na hindi japeks. Ang lider na humahanap ng solusyon. Yung taong galing sa hirap at naranasan kung papaano ang buhay ng isang mahirap. At ang lider na uunahin ay mamamayan muna,” Khonghun said.

Meanwhile, during one of Moreno’s pit stops in Subic, Zambales, Subic Mayor Jonathan Khonghun praised Moreno’s commitment to listen to ordinary people.

Moreno reiterated his plan to expand the national government’s infrastructure program and cover the construction of schools and socialized housing.

“Isa sa mga magandang quality ng pagiging President ay makuha niya yung quality ng isang pagiging Mayor at yung Mayor niyo, bumababa mismo sa tao kasi hindi mo malamaman yung problema ng iyong bayan o bansa kung di ka bababa sa mismong tao. ‘Yan ang isa sa mga magagandang quality ni Yorme,” Khonghun said.

Moreno reiterated his plan to expand the national government’s infrastructure program and cover the construction of schools and socialized housing.

“Lahat ng nagawa ni Pangulong Duterte na nasimulan na, itutuloy ko. Bakit itutuloy? Binayaran niyo yun. Kasi naging habit pag nagpalit ng administrasyon, giba dito, giba doon. Away dito, away doon. Pagbubutihan pa natin. Tayo, we will build more houses, build more jobs, build more schools, build more hospitals and build more business,” he said.
