ALAMINOS CITY- Former 5th District Rep. Mark O. Cojuangco said senior citizens should be given attention, respect and care for what they have contributed in the society during their younger days.
Speaking before the members of the Federation of Senior Citizens Association (FSCA) in this city last October 9 and in Calasiao on October 7, Cojuangco appreciated the contributions of the senior citizens in community building.
“Our generation owed a lot from you. It is you who paved the way to where we are now. It is only proper to repay you, for your hard work and sacrifices,” he said.
Cojuangco said he now realized his parents’ role in molding him to be a better person who has only wishes to help other people particularly the needy.
“My father is already 87 years old- Danding Cojuangco whom you supported for President in 1992 elections and my mother is already 76 years old. It is now my turn to repay them, of their good deeds of giving me good upbringing. I am now 57 years old and three years more I will already be like you as senior citizen,” Cojuangco said.
he further said if given to be elected as the alternative Governor in 2016, he will give importance to the needs of the senior citizens in the province.

“It will be different as compared when I was just a representative in the Congress where I was focused on legislative work. If I will be elected as your Governor, an executive position, I will provide an office that will look after the needs of the senior citizens,” he said.
In this city and in Calasiao, he was accompanied by Mayor Mark Roy Macanlalay, his vice gubernatorial mate, whom he introduced to the senior citizens as his partner in the development of Pangasinan.
He urged them to work and support for Macanlalay’s candidacy in 2016 elections.
“I need a legislator like him to support my development agenda for Pangasinan,” Cojuangco said.
