CamSur Rep. Bordado welcomes visitors ‘with a bold proposal’ in his office
Camarines Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado, Jr. had a surprised visitor today in his office at the House of Representatives, with a “bold proposal.”
Bordado welcomed in his office former Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and now Commission on Higher Education (CHED) regional director Dr. George Colorado.
Accompanying Colorado were Gil Gacer, a native of Camarines Sur and an inventor, and his children.
“HOUSE VISITORS WITH A BOLD PROPOSAL: No less than the former Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and now Commission on Higher Education (CHED) regional director DR. GEORGE COLORADO accompanied MR. GIL GACER and his children to my office,” said Bordado.
“A native of Calabanga, Mr. Gacer hails from a family of inventors. He currently designs and crafts small farm machinery and equipment in his modest shop in Valenzuela City,” said the CamSur solon.
But Gacer graced Bordado’s office not to present any of his inventions, but for another “bold” proposal: to make the Filipino language as the country’s medium for instruction.
“Mr. Gacer, however, was not in the House to present one of his inventions. He was instead keen on pushing his proposal for the use of the Filipino language as the medium of instruction from kindergarten up to the college level!,” said Bordado.
“And that was the reason, I surmised, why the CHED regional chief was with him,” he added.
