DAGUPAN CITY – Former five-time Speaker Jose de Venecia lauded Mark Cojuangco’s gubernatorial bid branding him a highly qualified bet who has a good economic mind.
“What we should do now is to mobilize powerful coalition in Pangasinan that will focus on the battle against poverty and against corruption and climate change and to create tens of thousands of new jobs,” he stressed.
De Venecia, known as JDV and who was a colleague of Cojuangco when they were members of the House of Representatives, said gubernatorial wannabes like Cojuangco, should focus on these battles and employment generation for the people in Pangasinan.
The former Speaker said what Pangasinan needs for a governor is a person who has a brilliance of a Ramon Ang, the chairman of San Miguel Corporation, to build large power plants in Sual and other areas of the province for the national Luzon grid, and build infrastructure and new expressway from Pampanga, Tarlac, and Pangasinan.
Ang was the former protégé of business tycoon Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco”, Mark’s father, when the older Cojuangco catapulted the food, power, and beverage San Miguel Corporation, he once chaired, as the top multi-billion of pesos business corporation in the country and in South East Asia.
De Venecia explained that those behemoth economic infrastructure could only be possible with an alliance of political parties and the forging of Private-Public-Partnership or the former Build Operate and Transfer he authored in congress.

“That should be the focus of whoever would run for the governorship and I think Mark Cojuangco is well qualified (for that),” he said.
