BOLINAO – Gubernatorial aspirant  Mark O. Cojuangco told  residents of this western Pangasinan town that he will use his knowledge and capacity to bring investors and  jobs to Pangasinan.

UGNAYAN 2015 on Nov. 13, 2015 in Bolinao, Pangasinan. The town mayor Arnold Celeste escorted the former congressman and Mayor Macanlalay during their rounds to meet and have photo ops with all the members in their respective booths.


The province, according to the recent report of the Department of Social Welfare & Development, has been reeling into alarming unemployment rate and glaring number of most poor people in Region 1.
“Gusto ko pong patamisin sa mata ng namumuhanan ang ating probinsiya para dito po sila dumating, dito po sila mamumuhunan, magtayo ng negosyo, ng mga pabrika, ng mga industry para po sa ating probinsiya (I want to make Pangasinan is attractive before the eyes of investors so they would come and put businesses here),” he stressed.
Assistant Regional Director Marilyn Peralta of the DSWD told reporters in Dagupan City last month that out of the 199,000 beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) in Region I, 124,091 families or 62% of the 199,000 are in Pangasinan.
If each of the families has an average of five members,  there are 620,455 individuals who are either unemployed or earning less than P200 a day in the huge province.
Cojuangco, the scion of the patriarch of the mammoth San Miguel Corporation, said the influx of investors would bring better jobs and decent life for Pangasinenses.
“Hindi na po kailangan lumayo pa at pumunta pa kung saan saan (You do not need to migrate to other places),” he said.
The poverty and the alarming unemployment in the province have been blamed by critics to the initiative-less administration of Governor Amado T. Espino Jr.
“Its indifference can be seen on the 2015 provincial budget where only P1 million was  to social service while it scandalously appropriated P50.4 million and P25 million to public affairs or ‘deodorizer fund’  and repairs of the Capitol ground and park, respectively,” editorialized lately by this paper.cojuangco bolinao 2
Cojuangco and his vice governorship tandem Calasiao Mayor Mark Roy Macanlalay were here to grace the meeting of the members of the group who were beneficiaries of a micro financing.

He told them  in case he and Macanlalay would be given the chance to serve Pangasinan, he would efficiently serve the province as shown by his records when he was a three-term congressman of the 5th District in Pangasinan.
