MANILA — Touching base with constituents while observing health
protocols amid the pandemic, what Senator Panfilo Lacson and Senate
President Vicente Sotto III has managed to do both during the
launching of Online Kamustahan which started in Antipolo City, Rizal.

“What the Lacson-Sotto tandem wanted is to continue touching base with
constituents, to get a feel of their problems and concerns and to
answer questions they may have, but without putting anyone’s health at
risk,” said Lacson’s campaign spokesperson Ashley Acedillo.

“And based on the initial feedback we got, it was a rousing success!” he added.

He said similar events with constituents in other parts of the country
are scheduled in the coming weeks.

“The Lacson-Sotto tandem will continue to draw ideas from ordinary
Filipinos in crafting their roadmap after June 2022. The roadmap is a
work in progress, and Online Kumustahan activities like this would be
the way to go,” Acedillo said.

Lacson and Sotto joined residents of eight barangays in Antipolo City

  • Bagong Nayon, Beverly Hills, Dela Paz, Mambugan, Mayamot,
    Muntingdilaw, San Isidro and Santa Cruz – in a Zoom conference on
    Saturday afternoon. The conference was livestreamed on Lacson’s
    Facebook page.

During the conference, Lacson stressed the importance of leadership by
example, which he and Sotto committed to upholding should they win in
the 2022 elections.

Lacson also reiterated his commitment to implement budget reforms to
make sure the government’s limited resources are maximized for
development projects at the local level.

For his part, Sotto vowed to implement a comprehensive and holistic
anti-drug war that will put emphasis not just on law enforcement but
on awareness and abuse prevention as well.

Both Lacson and Sotto also stressed the importance of restoring trust
in the government. (ai/mtvn)
