Sunday Thanksgiving: A Victorious Journey

A milestone was achieved when we have worked together for a common cause; a strategic operation that is mission accomplished. A thousand miles, yet a fulfilled journey. 

It was in the year 1998 since it all started when a Divine calling for public service was initiated. My Father was chosen and called to serve the people. At first, there was resistance; a protest due to fear. However, in the end, we all agreed and listened to the Divine call. 

As a three-termer legislator, my Father showed courage and perseverance. He may have some fair share of struggles, yet he stood up and fought for the common good. 
He was never frightened of those in the higher authority with the values he upholds and the principles he instilled. 

In 2007, after his 3rd term of public service he went back to business and enjoyed farming as a hobby; a source of joy and serenity. 

In 2013, at the age of 61, he was back in public service and became the head of the Office of Senior Citizen Affairs in our town. 
He advocated for the rights and the benefits of the elderly in collaboration with the Department of Social Welfare and Development. 

On May 14, 2016, after 9 years since his last public service as a Municipal councilor, he decided to make a come back to answer the call of his constituents, and on May 15, a day after the midterm election, he was declared for another seat. He actively serves the interest of the public through local legislation and resolutions that will benefit the general public and uplift the lives of the people. 

On May 13, 2019, Mid-term election, my father was declared a winner for his 2nd term. He will continue his public service and speak out and fight for the rights of his constituents. He will continue to be an advocate of our town's agricultural economy and livelihood and will stand up for the welfare of the public transportation sector - - his major committee chairmanship. 

My father is forever thankful for his constituents and to everyone who supported him on his political journey. His love of public service remains even when he is not in the position. He speaks loudly on his advocacy and for general services in the community. He is leaving a legacy for his love of society. He is forever grateful to God for his victory.
