BOAC, Marinduque – Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco promises to be a ‘listening leader’ once elected as Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Rep. Velasco says, “I am deeply humbled and honored by the endorsement of Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) for speakership in the House of Representatives.
The trust and confidence of my partymates in my leadership to steer the next Congress and commitment to support us will inspire me to work harder in bringing about meaningful changes and the much-needed unity to the bigger chamber.
More importantly, however, their support will inspire us to focus on crucial pieces of legislation that we need to pass in order to sustain the achievements of the Duterte Administration, surpass the economic growth of the country and provide better social services to the people. I am confident that together we can achieve these.
If elected speaker of the 18th Congress as representative of the single most dominant party in Congress and the political party of President Rodrigo Duterte, I assure them that I will remain a consultative and a listening leader, who welcomes his fellow lawmakers regardless of their political colors and affiliations.
Maraming, maraming salamat po sa suporta ng PDP-Laban! Kayo ang aking lakas”, Velasco concluded. – Marinduquenews.com
