District 2 Rep. Erbie A. Fabian last Friday paid tribute to hundreds of teacher-participants during the 11th Regional Convention of Biology Teachers by saying teachers have the capacity to transform and build the youth into becoming better, more protective and peaceful members of society.

Speaking during the fellowship night of the 11th BIOTA Regional Convention, Cong. Fabian said the teachers must persevere in carrying their vital roles of molding the youth and imparting knowledge for a better educated generation of young students.

The solon, who is running for the mayoralty post of the city on May 13, said he is committed to pursue the cause of environmental protection, embodied in his group’s 10-point agenda.

I I commit to work for environmental protection in the city, and a testament to this is, God willing, my bill which is now in the senate seeking the establishment of the Pasonanca Watershed reserve, which basically protects our critical water supply will soon be enshrined into law before the end of this 15th congress in June.

He said he is one with the teachers and the people of Zamboanga in seeing through measures which will protect our surroundings which in turn can help prevent calamities of catastrophic proportions from even happening in Zamboanga.

House Bill no. 422, principally authored by Cong. Fabian, is awaiting approval on its third and final reading in the upper chamber after having passed approval in congress and the senate committee on Natural Resources of Sen. ChizEscudero.

He also thanked the biology teachers, for deciding to make the city the venue of their regional confab.

“Coming here is a testament to your belief that indeed Zamboanga City is a beautiful place and conducive to holding important events such as your convention in our place. For this I thank you and when you go back home tell your friends and relatives to come and visit our city in the future and be our goodwill ambassadors,” Fabian added.

He also thanked organizers for making possible the convention and vowed support to future endeavors of the BIOTA here in Zamboanga City.
