Fuerza Zamboanga, bannered by its mayoralty bet Erbie A. Fabian, running mate Atty. Luis Climaco and District 2 Congress bet, Councilor Lilia Nuño is fast gaining ground after it concluded its first week of intense campaign in the city’s various barangays.

The Fuerza Zamboanga juggernaut, setting off a frenetic campaign pace, has barnstormed Barangays Talon-Talon, Talisayan, Camino Nuevo, Mercedes, Tumaga ,and in Vitali Sunday following the Monday launch at Plaza Pershing.

Fuerza bets have insisted on taking to the streets for a house-to-house campaign type of sorties capped with a nightly rally where candidates take to the stage and explain their collective and individual agenda.

Fuerza campaign officials expressed great satisfaction over the great response it has been getting from residents of the places they have visited.

People were especially elated at personally meeting with the candidates especially Mayoralty bet Fabian, his running mate and congress bet Lilia Nuno.

Many appreciated the efforts of Fuerza bets and their personal touch approach despite the intense heat of summer and peppered by occasional rain showers, saying this indicates the group is sending a message it will consult, listen and talk to the people in a Fuerza Zamboanga run administration.

“I thank the good people of the barangays we have visited for the warm welcome accorded our group when we did our sorties last week,” the 3-term congressman of the second district said.

“We took great encouragement from our first week sorties as people took time to listen to us, to our plans for Zamboanga even as we listened to what the people in the ground wants from their local government.

Rest assure, we are noting these down and we will study them and work out plans and programs for what our constituents expect from us their leaders if we come out successful in the May 13 polls,” Fabian disclosed. “Government is a two-way street and never should we take for granted what the people want, nor should be presumptive on what they people need. Right now solutions to the power crisis, resolving the unstable peace and order condition and putting a halt to taxes and excessive fees are paramount concerns of our group which the people we have met agree on,” Fabian said.

“We bring forth a united front, we stand up for each other and work as a team and our collective minds, not just my own will be put to good use if we get there, and we vow to do our best, as much more needs to be done,” he added. — Fuerza Zamboanga Media Bureau
