The Climaco family has been known to be part of the Liberal Party, among its first members were the late Mayor Cesar C. Climaco and Vice-Mayor Jolly Climaco, uncle and father of the lady solon respectively.

“We thank all of the people who gave me the mandate to serve the city of Zamboanga as their representative in the district and even for those who gave me their confidence to represent Mindanao as Deputy Speaker in the 15th Congress. We are here to work hard and be the voice of the people in the halls of congress,” Climaco stated.

Climaco likewise stressed the importance of staying united to push the interest of the majority of the people of Zamboanga. She is also thanks Mayor Lobregat, Congressman Fabian and the city councilors for supporting her steps in various initiatives.
