ROSALES – Some political kibitzers in the province are at a lost whether the popular Abono Party List patriarch Eng. Rosendo “Sendong” So would throw his hat on the forthcoming congressional race in the 6th congressional District or take one of the three seats incase the said Party List will win all of them big time in the May 14, 2010 National & Local Poll.

In an interview with media men at one of Abono’s sponsored job fairs here, Engineer Sendong So said that he preferred to serve the masses and the farmers as a plain citizen where he can discuss to them, and facilitate their problems with the government to solve them as he used to do it in the past.

When pressed why he does not want a seat on his Party Abono, he explained thus: “At least ang boses ko ay pinapakinggan kung hindi ako sa House (of Representatives), ha-ha-ha!(At least my voice has weight with the government if I am not a congressman, ha-ha-ha!)”

He added that aside from the Abono Party represented by its lone congressman in Robert Raymund Estrella, he has other congressmen’s friends to help the poor people that come to him.

Recently, several questions were posed to Eng So about the party winning two more seats as a result of its aggressive implementations of projects and programs in the Northern Luzon areas.

He said what is foremost is people see that the party is active through its different endeavors.

The party has just concluded the successful 2nd Agricultural Exposition 2009 at the town of Sison, Pangasinan where homegrown provincial products were exhibited, the recent competition of 22 mural paintings honoring the farmers held in Barangay Carmen of this town, village-based Gulayan and Maisan (GAMES) in the provinces of La Union, Pangasinan, and Tarlac, skills training for workers, lobbying for pro-farmers’ government policies, probes of anomalies that affect the agricultural sector, to name a few.
