It was like a homecoming for Congressman Celso Lobregat and the hundreds of members of the 18th IB Village Homeowners Association in Barangay San Roque when they met Sunday during a campaign sorties of “Team Colorao” in the village.

The village was a flagship project of Celso’s mother, the late Ma. Clara Lobregat, who donated several hectares of her land for the construction of the housing project for  soldiers assigned in Zamboanga City and in other parts of Western Mindanao, including their dependents.

Mrs. Lobregat’s son, Congressman Celso Lobregat continued helping the villagers by concreting the access roads from the main avenue of San Roque towards each and every household in that village, a gesture which was highly appreciated by the residents.

Mrs. Caridad Calungsod who lives in the village said they can never forget what the mother and son have done for them, who gave them shelter when they don’t have one and live in squatter area before.

“Bien grande gayot de amon debe pabor con Lobregat, ya dale ele canamon tierra y casa para queda el de amon familia, un cosa que hende gat kame olvida,” Calungsod said in chabacano.

Upon seeing Lobregat in their midst, everyone was very eager to shake his hand and expressing words of gratitude to the solon .– Dexter Yap
