MINALIN, Pampanga — Hundreds of motorists in different types of vehicles joined the motorcade of reelectionist Gov. Dennis “Delta” Pineda and local candidates that drove through major thoroughfares here Saturday.
With its staring point in Barangay Sto. Domingo at past 3 p.m., the motorcade made its way through all of the town’s 14 barangays. Among those who joined Pineda were 4th District congressional candidate Dr. Anna York Bondoc-Sagum, 4th District board members Nelson Calara and Pol Balingit, mayoralty candidate Rolly Flores and his running mate Jake Yambao, and other members of Team Panyulung.
“Governor Pineda’s support is overwhelming, we are really very lucky because he is our governor, he has done a lot here in Minalin,” Flores said.
He added that should he win, he will continue what his brother incumbent Minalin Mayor Edgar Flores started and will further intensify programs for the education of the youth as well as the economic development of the town.
It is estimated that about one hundred vehicles and motorcycles participated in the motorcade.
Jeanette Nunag-Culala, 42, who has been a Nanay Community Worker (NCW) in Barangay Lourdes was on the street to show his support for Pineda and local bets. “He [Pineda] has done a lot to make sure that basic health services are made available to the poor and the grassroots level. The provincial government has done so much for the development of Minalin in recent years,” Nunag-Culala said. GDDP-IG
