“Congratulations to papa cong. Edcel who many consider as the consensus best former appropriations committee chairperson in Congress. He has mentored many congressmen in his 9 terms in Congress even as he understood that the ‘power of the purse’ lies with the House of Representatives.
Also one of DBM’s Usecs. of note post-EDSA… he has always been the independent member of the Bicameral Conference Committee.
Congratulations also to our Ako Bicol (AKB) congressmen, 19th Congress Appropriations Committee Chair Rep. Zaldy Co, Rep. Atty. Jil Bongalon and Atty. Alfredo Garbin. Oragon nanggad an mga Albayano, Bicolano!” the Vice Governor posted.
