Two incumbent ranking elected city officials yesterday vouched for the capacity of congressional aspirant Jomar Lobregat to be the 2nd district’s representative in congress.

In separate radio interviews, 1st district Congresswoman and Team Pnoy mayoralty aspirant, Beng Climaco-Salazar, and her running mate, re-electionist Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde, said Lobregat is the ‘silent type’, yet can accomplish many good things for his constituents, should he be elected congressman of district 2 on May 13 elections.

“Jomar can surely help district 2 constituents in terms of health, education, and social services, the very programs which I have been prioritizing, since I became congresswoman in my district”, Climaco-Salazar assured over RMN’s Kuskos Batikos radio program.

Climaco-Salazar said she has known Jomar and his family to be so much dedicated to public service, as the latter has been their campaign manager, dating back to the time of late mayor Ma Clara lobregat.

Climaco believes, that with Jomar, along with his elder brother, outgoing mayor and 1st district congressional candidate Celso Lobregat in congress, Zamboanguenos can expect one voice, especially in the aspect of protecting Zamboanga City from attempts, for it to be included in the about to be crafted Bangsamoro basic law, following the signing last year, of peace agreement between the government and Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

Meanwhile, Iturralde said, that the younger Lobregat was also instrumental to the successful crusade to exclude Zamboanga City in the botched Memorandum of Agreement on Bangsamoro Juridical Entity (MOA-BJE), some five years ago.

“Beyond the people’s knowledge, Jomar has been there all along, together with Mayor Lobregat in going to and from the Supreme Court, where the elder Lobregat later interpolated with the justices, which eventually convinced these magistrates in declaring such agreement unconstitutional,” the vice mayor clarified over Wild FM’s ‘Buenas Dias Zamboanga’ radio program.

Iturralde also expressed optimism, that Jomar would emerge victorious over his two other contenders, “judging from the people’s reception on him where ever we go and campaign”. — Team PNoy PR
