Lord Allan Velasco, Representative of the Lone District of Marinduque met the Department of Transportation Secretary, Arthur Tugade.
Congressman Velasco personally requested Secretary Tugade to look into unfinished runway of the Gasan Airport which has been long overdue and has been hurting the tourism efforts of the Marinduque province.
According to Velasco’s Facebook post “The request was given a very positive response by the secretary. In addition, I pushed for the construction of a new General Luna Port which would benefit tourism in the municipalities of Torrijos and Sta. Cruz, most especially the 3 islands, Mompong, Maniwaya and Polo. A project that needed a budget of 135 million, and I was promised that it will be included in the budget next year. Indeed, change is really coming! Our smiles says it all. Thank you Mr. Secretary and thank you Mr. President!”
