PILILLA, Rizal 2D — Former party-list congressman Omar Fajardo’s aspiration to become a pioneering representative of the new Second District of Rizal got a big boost as the Tau Gamma Phi (ΤΓΦ) chapter here threw in its solid support to his candidacy recently.
Leaders of Tau Gamma’s Pililla chapter formalized their intent of support for the former party-list congressman and businessman with a simple but meaningful ceremony at the town’s famous Bulawan Floating Restaurant.
“I cannot thank Tau Gamma enough for this brotherly support but I’m very happy and lucky they offered me their help at this crucial point of my candidacy,” Fajardo said. “Thank you very much brothers!”
Aside from the town of Pililla, Tau Gamma Phi, which is also known as ‘Triskelions’ Grand Fraternity’, also has member chapters scattered in other towns of the new second district namely Jala-Jala, Morong, Teresa, Tanay, Cardona, and Baras, and elsewhere.
It is a fraternity well established in the Philippines whose members call themselves Triskelion.
One of its tenets is to see a Fraternity System devoid of violence in lieu of the rampant violence pervading in university campuses at the time of its founding, to avoid elitism if they can, and to earnestly propagate their fraternity’s principles as their way of life without political influence or pressure.
Based on these goals, the Triskelions categorized their formal group as a ‘protest fraternity.’
The Fraternity encourages its members to strive for spiritual growth and to organize socio-civic activities for the benefit of communities the Wikipedia says.
Tau Gamma Phi is now one of the largest international fraternities, with about 2,500,000 registered members worldwide. Its counterpart is called Tau Gamma Sigma (ΤΓΣ) also known as the Triskelions’ Grand Sorority.
Fajardo promises to bring into the second district of Rizal a new brand of politics that is pro-people, pro-active and everything patterned after his campaign slogan that says “Omar Cares.” (ai/mtvn)
