A look-back at Congressman Rodel Batocabe’s election frustration
Before the May elections, AKO-Bicol party-list Rep. Rodel Batocabe was only preoccupied with one thing: emptying this warehouse full of school supplies.
“Due to the election ban, we cannot distribute these books for Bicol youth. Win or lose, we hope to give them away,” he tweeted.
AKO-Bicol ended up topping the 2016 polls’ party-list race, giving Batocabe a fresh term as congressman. As for the warehouse, you can bet that it’s been licked bare for the benefit of Bicolano students.
