Dr. Mikee Romero, 1-Pacman Party List nominee, said in a radio interview, “if given the chance by the Filipino voters this coming national elections, I promise to adopt a Bill in Congress for the creation of a Department of Sports in the Philippines so sports development in the country can be concentrated and expanded up to the farthest barangay.”

The most important and serious matter that our government should look into is the gravity of prohibited drug infiltration in the country’s barangays. In Metro Manila alone, “at least 92 % of barangays are infiltrated by prohibited and dangerous drug use and some of the youths in these barangays are already drug dependent and have dropped out of school,” Dr. Mikee Romero revealed. “Something has to be done by government to rescue these wayward youths” and “one way to stop drug dependence among our youths is to keep them busy and entice them to a productive habit of sports development,” Dr. Romero said.

1-Pacman Party List plans to expand sports development throughout the country to be able to discover local athletic talents and develope them to be world class athletes for international competition, even be “Olympians”, if properly trained and guided. The country has not totally tapped the country’s youths talent in sports and 1-Pacman Party List will spearhead this endeavor with government’s assistance if given a seat in Congress.

Eddie Garcia, the popular veteran actor in Philippine movies, is the stepfather of Dr. Mikee Romero the 1-Pacman Party List nominee and actor Eddie Garcia is actively supporting Dr. Romero’s party list bid for a seat in Congress. In fact, being a neophyte in politics but an accomplished businessman, veteran actor Eddie Garcia is Romero’s adviser and consultant in political matters. Actor Eddie Garcia is also a veteran adviser to many politicians in the past and is partly responsible for the victory and success of many local politicians.

Dr. Mikee Romero is also a sportsman, being the manager of his Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) basketball team, Globalport/Batang Pier, whose players are in full support of his political quest and to include some if not all PBA team players like the popular PBA basketball player James Yap Jr.  They are supporting 1-Pacman Party List because of its timely advocacy of development of Sports, Education and Job Generation in the country and the fight to stop dangerous and prohibited drug dependence of the country’s youth through sports development.

1-Pacman Party List always believe that only in the total development of Sports, Education and Job generation in the country can uplift the lives of the less fortunate families in the country. An educated youth with a healthy body can always land a job  and lead a sustainable livelihood. But, a less educated and sickly youth have a hard time in finding a job for a better future and continue to lead a miserable life.

Scoop: 1-Pacman Party List advocacy on the development of Sports, Education and Job generation for all in the country is now getting the attention of the public and with the participation and support of honorable and influential people, Dr. Mikee Romero’s 1-Pacman Party List is having a big chance to be in Congress. Agree or disagree.
