The Citywide Urban Poor Council led by Roy Barte on Saturday endorsed the candidacy of Monsi Dela Cruz for congress in the first district of Zamboanga City.

The endorsement was announced during the 1st Quarter Convention where Hon. Uliran Joaquin and Nr Joaquin of the 1-Pabahay partylist and USec  Ernani Panganiban of the PCUP were the guests of honor.

In an interview, Barte said they endorsed Dela Cruz because they believe that he is a sincere person who can help the urban poor sector in the city.

“Siya lang kasi ang makakatulong sa amin ng mga programa dito sa lungsod kaya naming siya sinusuportahan para maging susunod congresista sa 1st district,” Barte said.

Dela Cruz and some other politicians were endorsed before the more than 100 urban poor leaders who were present during the affair.

Barte said their sector also supports the 1-Pabahay partylist as they see hope on the platforms of government of the said partylist group.

Earlier in his statement, Barte said that Monsi’s track record shows his pro-poor and people programs which promote progress and development in the city, specifically in District 1.

Meanwhile, Dela Cruz expressed gladness as he accepted the endorsement of the urban poor sector and pledged that he will pay attention to the said group once elected.

Dela Cruz said that he will work hard to serve not only the first district but the entire city. — Dan Toribio Jr.
