Catanduanes has been one of the provinces in the country that scored a huge chunk budget for infrastructure projects, thanks to the efforts of Rep. Cesar Sarmiento.

In a newsletter issued by Sarmiento’s office in February this year, the Catanduanes has been allotted with P2.8 billion.

Also, during the plenary debates for 2019 national budget, a solon noticed that huge budget was earmarked for Catanduanes.

“Sa mga nagdaang debate sa Kongreso ukol sa napupuntang mga proyekto sa mga distrito at napansin ng isang kongresista ang madaming proyekto at napakalaking pondo para sa Solong Distrito ng Catanduanes ngayong 2018,” Sarmiento’s office said.

The solon’s office said that it showed how Sarmiento fought hard to give the province all the programs and projects it needs.

“[A]ting napatunayan ang sipag, malawak at produktibong koneksyon, at di matatawarang galing ni Cong. Sarmiento na ipakipaglaban bawat taon, ang kapakanan ng Catanduanes na kanyang kinakatawan sa lehislatura ng pambansang pamahalaan,” the office said.

“Ang Serbihan newsletter na inilathala ng kanyang opisina nitong nakaraang Pebrero 2018 ay una nang naghayag at nagpatunay ng kanyang sensirong serbisyo sa kongreso para sa kanyang lalawigan at distrito,” it added.
