This he said before a group of media men after filing his certificate of candidacy (CoC) for the congressional seat of the fifth district at the Provincial Office of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) on October 15.

Guico is challenging incumbent 5th District Rep. Amado T. Espino Jr..

“People are clamoring for a leader that they can see. In my nine years as mayor of Binalonan, not even once that the present leadership in the district, even when he was still the Governor, visited our town, (although) there were some small projects that he has implemented in Binalonan,” he said.

But he admitted that running against Espino needs a lot of work and that he must not be over confident.

“I’ve gone around every barangay and talked already with the leaders,” he said.

He said that if given the chance to win as representative of the district, he will provide strategic directions to every local government units where plans will be communicated well to align with their programs and projects.

“In Binalonan, we don’t have natural attractions that’s why we concentrated to make it as an events place where peace and order and safety are paramount,” he said.

He also said that he is for the development of the district where everyone is included.

“We have to put our hearts and efforts in order to have results and for everyone to be benefit. There must be an inclusive growth in the district,” he said.

Guico further said that Pangasinan is a wide province and power should not rest on one family.

“I have nothing to lose in this congressional race. I am offering myself. But if the people will vote for me, they have a lot to gain from me, he said.

He said he joined the camp of gubernatorial aspirant Art Celeste because like him, Celeste also wanted changes in Pangasinan.

Meanwhile, Villasis Councilor Nicholi Jan Louie Sison, who also filed his CoC for 5th District Board Member on the same day, said his decision to run as Board Member is to give a chance for the future generations to be leaders not only those with known names in local politics.

“There’s a need for a local counterpart of Congress to align legislative agenda, programs and projects. The youth is the biggest sector in our society but is the least focused on. I have to fill that gap. Empower them and provide inspiration for them to become future leaders,” Sison said.
