VG Lagman meets with DSWD official Justin Batocabe
Albay Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman has met with the Social Welfare director Atty. Justin Batocabe.
“Happy to have the very capable and competent Director of 2 bureaus in the central office of the DSWD, Atty. Justin Batocabe,” said Lagman.
Justin is the son of late Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe.
“For the record, his late father was the ONLY Bicolano congressman who voted in plenary for the passage of the RH Bill,” said Lagman.
“Rep. Rodel Batocabe was the only congressman among the 15 district representatives and 4 Partylist representatives in the Bicol Region who recognized the transcendental import of this progressive piece of legislation principally authored by Cong. Edcel,” he said.
The vice governor also said that DSWD is luck to have Justin under its fold.
“The future looks bright for you, amigo, as it should well be. The DSWD’s central office is surely a better department with you on board,” he said.
“I’m sure your dad is proud of you even as you continue to honor his good name,” he added.
