Negros group supports Sara’s VP bid

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The Alliance of Broadcasting Committee, the instigator of the “Padayona Inday Sara” Negros movement, remains committed to support vice presidential aspirant Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.

Retired P/Col. William Señoron, who is the ABC convenor, yesterday said that they will continue to support Duterte-Carpio, despite her decision to run for vice president although there was an overwhelming support for her to run for president in the next year elections.

Señoron said that their movement will continue its outreach programs all over the province, with Mary Grace Lucasan, a former Overseas Filipino worker, who is a resident of Barangay Cruz, Calatrava, as their latest beneficiary.

Assisted by the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office of Calatrava, Señoron said they delivered grocery items to Lucasan, who is now engaged in sari-sari store business, in order to feed her family.

“We offered assistance by providing her a source of livelihood to support her children”, he added.

Señoron expressed hopes that the assistance received by Lucasan will serve as an instrument to rebuild their lives and become a long-term source of income for the family, as he also thanked Calatrava Mayor Marilyn Era, local police and barangay captain Crisanta Agravante for partnering with the ABC Padayona Inday Sara in the endeavor.

Lucasan, according to Señoron, was teary-eyed as the sari-sari store items were brought inside her home. “Thank you so much for the help you brought to us, for coming here to help us. I thought we would never find hope amid the hardships. I don’t have a source of living to raise my children,” she said in the local dialect.

This latest endeavor is just one of the numerous programs that ABC is undertaking in line with the group’s efforts to support Mayor Sara, who is now a vice presidential candidate, he stressed.*
