ALAMINOS CITY- Pangasinan gubernatorial aspirant Mark O. Cojuangco emphasized the importance of cooperatives in bringing development and progress to farmers as they are the conduits of agricultural programs in the province.
mARK FARMERSMARK WITH FARMERS. Pangasinan guberatorial candidate Mark Cojuangco stresses the need to develop  cooperatives as vehicles to promote the farmers’ progress in Pangasinan. He was a guest during  the29th Annual General Assembly of Maawi-Alos Multipurpose Cooperative held in Tangcarang, Alaminos City last March 2.

Cojuangco said this during the 29th Annual Assembly of Maawi-Alos Farmers Cooperative held at Tangcarang village here last March 2 where he was the guest of honor and speaker.
“Mahigit 70% ng ating kababayan ay umaasa pa rin sa pagsasaka kaya kailangang mapaunlad ang industriyang ito sa ating probinsiya,” Cojuangco said.
(More than 70% of our province mates still rely on farming that is why there is a need to develop this industry in the province.)
Cojuangco reiterated his call for the cooperative members to support him on May 9 elections for him to spearhead agricultural programs in the province.

“Progress in the province could only be attained if we will help our farmers particularly on farm inputs, machineries and post-harvest facilities. The cooperative could help along this line by identifying the farmers’ needs. The problems of 1st District might not be the same as that in the 5th District,” Cojuangco said.
During his term as representative of 5th District from 2001 to 2010, Cojuangco is known for championing the welfare of the farmers in the District.
By using his priority development assistance fund (PDAF) and later on the tobacco excise tax share of 5th District, Cojuangco built farm-to-market roads, constructed palay and corn drying facilities, purchased farm tractors and coordinated with various government agencies for farm inputs subsidy of farmers.
Meanwhile, Cojuangco and his vice gubernatorial running mate Mark Roy Macanlalay are conducting sectoral consultations among the Pangasineses province wide to know their needs.

The Medikalinga sa Pangasinan, a free surgical mission is also continuously providing services to the less fortunate Pangasinenses who could not avail the high cost of surgeries, medicines and medical consultations.
To date, more than 18,000 beneficiaries have availed of this program in Pangasinan.
