Lacson-Sotto tandem takes “Online Kumustahan” to Pampanga

By Ernie Reyes

MANILA — Partido Reporma chairman and standard-bearer Panfilo “Ping”
Lacson is scheduled to meet with political leaders and residents of
Pampanga, Friday (October 29, 2021), to offer possible solutions he
had in mind as regards the most pressing concerns of their province.

The activity is part of the “Online Kumustahan” virtual town hall
forums organized by Partido Reporma and its allied political parties
to support his presidential bid in tandem with running mate Senate
President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III.

Lacson is set to visit Brgy. San Antonio in Mexico, Pampanga for an
in-person socially distanced gathering that will be streamed live via
Zoom video conference and through his verified Facebook account
(@PingLacsonOfficial) at 2:00 PM.

Also participating in the afternoon virtual forum is the local
leaders and residents from the City of San Fernando and Barangays San
Juan in San Simon, Mandasig in Candaba, and Apalit in Floridablanca,
Pampanga.

The Lacson-Sotto campaign team launched “Online Kumustahan” to a
resounding success in the congressional districts of Antipolo City,
Rizal over the last two weeks as part of their commitment to avoid
holding risky political rallies amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

The two separate activities pulled around 4,000 supporters during the
organized in-person assemblies in different venues across all 16
participating barangays in Antipolo City. Thousands more people
followed the events via Facebook and Zoom.

Both Lacson and Sotto appeared during the first edition of the “Online
Kumustahan” that was held in the first district of Antipolo City. They
spoke with the residents of Barangays Bagong Nayon, Beverly Hills,
Dela Paz, Mambugan, Mayamot, Muntindilaw, San Isidro and Santa Cruz.

For the follow-up event, Lacson brought with him Partido Reporma
senatorial candidates Dr. Minguita Padilla and Paolo Capino as well as
former Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, who is also running for
senator under the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC), which Sotto
chairs.

They met with the local leaders and residents of Barangays Calawis,
Cupang, Dalig, Inarawan, San Jose, San Juan, San Luis and San Roque,
which comprise the second congressional district of Antipolo City.

The success of the first two “Online Kumustahan” events gave Partido
Reporma, NPC, and the National Unity Party led by campaign manager
Ronaldo Puno the confidence they need to drum up widespread and
organic grassroots level of support for the Lacson-Sotto tandem,
thereby, allowing its expansion to other provinces. (ai/mtvn)
