Samar gov declares support for Roxas’ presidential bid

CATBALOGAN CITY, Nov. 20 (PNA) -- Despite being a stalwart member of the Nacionalist People’s Coalition in Samar province, Governor Sharee Ann Tan said she will be supporting the candidacy of Liberal Party (LP) presidential bet Mar Roxas.

Her support stems from the massive support the province received during Roxas’ stint as secretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

The massive government assistance to this poor province came through distribution of police patrol jeepneys to poor towns, post-Yolanda reconstruction of local government-owned buildings, and water system projects for waterless communities.

“We saw for ourselves how Secretary Mar helped the province and we cannot just ignore the support he has given us,” Tan said.

In May 2015, 23 brand new units of multi-role patrol jeeps were issued by DILG to towns in Samar province. Roxas then said the patrol jeeps would help the local police force maintain the peace and order situation in Samar against communist rebels, who often clash with government troops in the area, causing violence, damages, and disruptions to daily life of innocent civilians.

In post Yolanda time, the province received Php16.52 million to fund special projects under the Reconstruction Assistance on Yolanda (RAY) phase 1 project of the DILG.

This went to the rehabilitation of municipal halls, public markets and civic centers. Samar still received a second tranche of the post typhoon fund through RAY phase 2 projects in the amount of Php82.43 million.

RAY 2 funds are for rehabilitation of identified village facilities. Under this, Samar has 138 special projects which some have already been completed before Typhoon Yolanda had its second commemoration earlier this month.

The Sagana at Ligtas na Tubig sa Lahat (Salintubig) Program, which started in 2011, has also been brought to Samar by Roxas, according to Tan.
