QUEZON CITY, Manila – Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco is joining the nation in mourning the loss of former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel, Jr.
On his press statement, Velasco says, “I join the entire nation as we mourn the passing of former Senate President Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel Jr. – a well-loved public servant, a brilliant lawyer, and a man of principles even in the face of adversity and trying times.
For us in Partido Demokratiko Pilipinas-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), the party which he founded, he was not just a mentor but a game changer that help strengthened the country’s local government system.
We shall be forever grateful for your legacy and contribution in championing democracy, electoral reforms and devolution of powers for stronger local governance.
May your family and loved ones find strength in our dear Lord in this very difficult time.” – Marinduquenews.com
