TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte –
Leyte Governor Carlos Jericho "Icot" Petilla campaigned among fellow Leyteños
to vote straight for Team Unity senatorial line up, the ticket he was formerly
under with when he had his short stint as a senatorial candidate.
Gov. Petilla said that having
the majority bloc in the senate would mean additional projects that will be
trickled down to the common people to the provinces such as Leyte.
"It's like having your own
municipal council, if the councilors do not agree, who suffers. It is the
people. If the local chief executive does not get the nod of the council, who
suffers, still it's the people," Gov. Icot said in front of a wide audience in
the two day campaign sortie of Team Unity in Leyte province.
He assured the voting populace
that the senatoriables under the administration ticket are truly bonded together
and have a track record of delivering the service needed by the people.
"I know, for the short while I
was with them, that they are truly united towards a common goal and they
have the same vision of uniting the whole country rather than dividing it on
talks of politics," Gov. Petilla said.
Senatoriables who were in the
province this week for their provincial campiagn trail were Joker Arroyo, Ralph
Recto, Mike Defensor, Chavit Singzon and Ed Angara.
The senators were able to
conduct its "Pulong-Sulong" in the towns of Abuyog, Burauen, Dulag and the city
of Tacloban, all places having a big share of the voting populace.
Gov. Petilla also sponsored
a dinner for the campaigning senatoriables at the Leyte capitol Gym which was
attended by local chief executives from different Leyte towns, provincial and
