Buti pa sila, may konsensya! Bicolano councilors proud of Congressmen Lagman, Bordado

Sep 12, 2017 @ 22:25

Councilors from Bicol thanked and praised their lawmakers for standing up against the House of Representative’s approved P1,000 budget for the Commission on Human Rights.

While at least 119 members supported 1-Sagip Representative Rodante Marcoleta’s move to give P1,000 instead of their proposed P649 million, only 32 lawmakers opposed the move, with Albay Congressman Edcel Lagman being the most vocal.

Naga City Councilor Ray-an Rentoy posted on Facebook the 23 of the reported 32 lawmakers who opposed the P1,000 budget for CHR. He lauded Cam Sur Representative Gabriel Hidalgo Bordado, Jr.

Tabaco Councilor Sheina Onrubia reposted Rentoy’s post and praised Lagman.

“So proud of him,” she posted on Facebook.

Lagman’s son former Albay Rep Edcel Grex Lagman, Jr., echoed Onrubia’s statements saying the solon is an excellent template for future leaders and public servants.

Hail the 32. The guts, 119! Can you still sleep at night?
