Daraga mayor bet Gertie Batocabe distributes bags to teachers designed by her late husband
Daraga mayoral bet Gertie Duran-Batocabe has distributed bags to teachers designed by no less than her late husband Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe.
Gertie shared that the bags would have been Rep. Batocabe’s Christmas gift to teachers.
“Just started distributing the bags Rodel designed for the teachers of Daraga which should have been his Christmas gifts,” Gertie said.
“Thank you for the warm welcome and good stories about him. He had always the greatest respect for this sector,” she added.
Rep. Rodel was killed in an ambush last December 22 while attending a gift-giving event in Daraga, Albay. His aide Orlando Diaz was likewise killed.
Rep. Rodel, who was serving his last and term as congressman, was running for Daraga mayor when he was ambushed.
Gertie formally substituted the candidacy of her husband earlier this month.
