Camarines Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. made himself count


Camarines Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. skipped one House of Representatives hearing for a very important reason: participating in the 2020 census.

Bordado did his duty as a citizen and joined the census of the population spearheaded by the Philippine Statistics Authority.

In a Faceboook post, Bordado called on Filipinos to cooperate with the census team.

According to him, there is an urgent need to correct government data for the development of the country.

He also said he reminded the census team to ensure they are observing the health protocols as they go about their job.

Let’s all make ourselves count!

“PARTICIPATING IN THE 2020 CENSUS–DESPITE THE PANDEMIC: I had to forego one online House committee hearing just to ensure that I could participate in the 2020 Philippine census–the 15th census of population and the 7th census of housing since 1903, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

I am appealing to my countrymen to cooperate with the census teams of the PSA. Correct and updated data are badly needed by the government for the development of our country.

In view of the current Covid-19 pandemic, I reminded the PSA census teams to comply strictly with the Department of Health (DOH) protocols,” Bordado posted.
