DAGUPAN CITY –Former Presidential Management Staff Secretary Hermogenes Esperon who filed his certificate of candidacy for congress in the sixth district was called as “Johnny-come-lately” by his rival.

Vice Governor Marlyn Premicias-Agabas said in a press conference that the people of the district could judge that she has been serving there for nine years while Esperon just sneaked from nowhere.

But Espero countered, “That’s right, I am not yet known very well in the district because I served with the national government in different capacities. But there are ways the people would know me.”

He stressed that he is being remembered because of the civic programs his wife Lorna brought to different villages and towns in the district.

He said that he brought two school buildings in each of the 10 towns there.

Esperon said he did not hear Agabas espousing flagship projects he interceded for like the 43-km Tarlac-Pangasinan Expressway for the faster travel time of commuters and businessmen, and the P11.5 billion re-regulating pond that will irrigate tens of thousands of hectares in the provinces of Pangasinan, Nueva Ecija, and Tarlac .

“Dahil hindi ko naman naririnig iyon sa kanila! Gusto pa nilang alisin ang San Roque Dam. So, iyan ang mga issue na ipaala-ala ko sa mga tao ( I don’t hear Primicias-Agabas talked about projects like that. She even wants to close the San Roque Dam. These are issues people should know).

    May nakita nga ako na gumawa ng survey si agabas na around 72% ang para sa kanya at less than 10% daw kay Gen Esperon. Pero ayon sa isang reporter na nag investigate nitong survey na ito, eh, puro bola lang pala mula sa kampo ni Agabas. Kasinungalingan lang pala. Eh sino talagang hindi mo paniniwalaan si Agabas dito. o baka may takot na siya na si Esperon ang lamang kaya ginagawa niya ang mga ito. Tingin ko eh kapag gumawa ulit ng survey, si Gen Esperon ang nakalalamang. Kahit na taga manila siya, nakikita namin siya talagang every week nasa pangasinan.

    Thats right. Esperon had served as Chief of Staff of the Arm Forces of the Philippines. One thing he had done at that time is to patrol the border of Pangasinan so that no NPA will penetrate Pangasinan. One of his goal now is to make our province NPA free and maintain peace and order so people in our province can live safely and worry free of any destructions.
    Secondly, Esperon just sponsored this 2700 youth who graduated from Tesda last December . His vision is to have at least one college graduate in every poor family in the 6th district. Education is the basic foundation on every childs future and they are our future so Esperon is concentrating on this goal. And how about those two classrooms he brought to every town in the 6th district.
    Thirdly, Esperon is bringing the best infrastructures , best project in our district to make our town progressive, to make our farmers and the poor alleviate their lives from poverty.
    The re regulating pond, the expressways, the farms to market roads are the best ideas that a leader can come up with to make a province become progressive.
    And fourth, did you know that he is distributing Phil Health cards to the poor and not to mention the medical missions that his wife, Dra Lorna Esperon brings to the villages.
    And lastly, a project he has in mind is the Maliku Road in San Nicolas Mountains shortcut Rd to Cagayan Valley. if that mterializes, people from Cagayan Valley will be traveling via Pangasinan to Manila which means more commercials and industrial businesses will be created in our district and ultimately means a progressive town.
    Did Marilyn Agabas had projects like this in here 9 years service in Pangasinan? NADA!!!

    Well, those Lennongs(shades) That agabas built along the roads did it come from her pocket or from the goverment? Any project like those are so small even to mention unlike the projects that was pushed by Esperon such as the Expressways and the San Roque Dam re regulating pond are already in progress.
