No need! Chiz Escudero no support for bill naming Sorsogon school after dad’s name
Out of delicadeza, Senator Chiz Escudero rejected a bill aiming to rename Sorsogon State College after his father, former Congressman Salvador Escudero III.
According to a report from Bicol Standard, Escudero, citing conflict of interest as reason, said he will not adopt House Bill No. 6203 authored by his mother Evelina Escudero, lawmakers Deogracias Ramos and Anthony Bravo.
Instead, Escudero said he will refer to the original bill which aims to change the school’s name into Sorsogon State University, the report said.
“I am throwing my support all the way for the conversion of this gem of an educational institution in my province. It has already earned its rightful place to be conferred a university status by producing top-notch graduates who can compete globally. But I will not, during my term in the Senate, advocate to name a government project after my father or any relative for that matter,” Escudero told the Bicol Standard.
Two thumbs up, Senator Chiz! Glad you’re unlike other typical politicos!
