Solo Parents Association Philippines , Inc. (SPAPI) officials led by Elane Onadad recently visited Mamac at his office and vowed to support him.
“We have not enjoyed support from incumbent officials and we only see real support from Mamac,” said Onadad, disclosing that the SPAPI-Angeles City chapter now has some 500 members.
Mamac, for his part, said he will create a women’s center at the Balibago barangay hall. He disclosed that the funds for the center will be given by Sen. Miguel Zubiri.
Mamac said the center will serve as training site for SPAPI members on livelihood projects.
Mamac said once given a chance to serve as mayor he will give due attention to the SPAPI.
“They should be given an opportunity to decently raise their children,” he said. “Too bad they didn’t get support from the present government.”
Mamac recently met with business firms based in Metro Manila and asked them to prioritize the hiring of SPAPI members for their businesses in Pampanga.
SPAPI vice president Valentin David disclosed that they expect to have some 1,000 new members before the year ends.
