Oriental Mindoro Rep. Umali thanks SAP Bong Go for supporting his senatorial bid
Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo V. Umali has found a support from Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go should he decide to run as senator.
Umali thanked Go as the latter expressed his support to the Oriental Mindoro solon’s bid for senator.
“Nais kong magpasalamat kay SAP Christopher Bong Go sa kanyang pagkilala sa akin sa naganap na 1st MRRD-NECC Provincial Summit sa Pampanga,” Umali said.
“Kanyang ipinamahagi noong araw na iyon ang kanyang suporta sa akin sakaling ako’y tatakbong Senador,” he added.
Both Umali and Go are part of the 20 initial names that the ruling party PDP-Laban is eyeing to field this coming 2019 Senatorial elections.
Umali also thanked President Rodrigo Duterte for his support to the province of Oriental Mindoro.
“Nais ko ring magpasalamat muli kay Pangulong Rodrigong Duterte sa kanyang walang sawang pagtulong sa pagpapaunlad ng Oriental Mindoro at sa pagsuporta sa aking mga tungkulin bilang Kongresista!,” he said.
Umali is the chairman of the powerful House committee on justice.
Umali’s committee has already approved the articles of impeachment against Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.
Umali’s panel likewise spearheaded the probe on the proliferation of illegal drug trade at the National Bilibid Prison.
