VILLASIS- “You are lucky here that you have the Abono Partylist through its Chairman Rosendo So that the scholarship program is brought here, along with scholarship program of 5th District Rep. Kimi Cojuangco. It appears that you have two congressmen working together for your welfare. I am a witness of how the Abono Partylist is working for the welfare of all towns in Pangasinan and in the whole country.”

This was said by former 5th District Rep. Mark O. Cojuangco before a group of parents, pupils and students who are recipients of the educational assistance, which was distributed by the staff of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) at the Public Auditorium here last October 24.

There were 200 recipients of ” Tulong sa Mag-aaral” who came from indigent families in the 21 barangays of this town. Pupils in the elementary grades received P1,000 each, students in high schools received P2,000 each and in colleges, students received P3,000 each.

Cojuangco said that Abono Partylist has been helping all the towns of 5th District but this town is getting special treatment.

” Maybe, Sendo is doing this because of his love to me that he wants me to succeed in my aspirations to run as governor in 2016 elections. I know that you will not forget me for I have also made projects in this town particularly on agriculture and infrastructure like the drainages so that you will not experience flooding in the future,” Cojuangco said.

Cojuangco also took the opportunity to introduce to the audience Calasiao Mayor Mark Roy Macanlalay, as his running mate for vice governor in 2016 elections.

Macanlalay has all praises to So being an instrument of helping many towns in Pangasinan through the Abono Partylist including his town Calasiao.

“You are so lucky to have this kind of educational assistance program here and I hope that you pupils and students will study well and give importance to the love given by Abono Partylist and Rep. Kimi Cojuangco. This assistance is given for you to strive more for a better future. Always remember that poverty is not a hindrance to attain your goals as you have Congressman (Conrad) Estrella, Congresswoman Kimi Cojuangco, Engr. Rosendo So and Mayor (Dita) Abrenica who will always support your aspirations in life,” Macanlalay said.
He also introduced himself as the running mate of Cojuangco in 2016 elections, a challenge he accepted because he believes on the dedication of Cojuangco for public service.

” He does not need to work anymore but because of his love to public service, he will run as governor and I will be with him side by side,” he said.

Meanwhile on that same day, Abono Partylist Chairman Rosendo O. So together with Cojuangco, Macanlalay, Mayor Abrenica and Councilor Centenielo Ramon Costales Jr. distributed scholarship funds in Lapaz Elementary School, Bacag East Elementary School, Bacag West Elementary School and Tombod Integrated School with 1315 total beneficiaries to defray the pupils/students schools’ miscellaneous fees.

In the afternoon, the same activity was undertaken in Nancayasan Elementary School scholarship funds for the 115 kindergarten pupils of the school were turned over.

The scholarship funds came from the personal money of the So family.

So encouraged the pupils and students to study hard and strive for a better life. He urged them to work in the agriculture sector in order to attain food sufficiency and security in the future.

” Don’t sell your land. Work on it and plant food for the country’s needs,” he said as he noticed the dwindling agricultural lands in the country as they are converted into other uses.
