Belief in the capacity of common folk to do what’s right and to do it well – another mark of a great leader. Leni’s empowered constituents fulfill their dream.
It has been a long cherished dream that Calabanga, the only coastal town in my district, will have its own fishing port. Not only will it help uplift the lives of fishermen in the locality, it will also attract economic activity for the entire municipality.
Because of the relentless efforts of the Barangay Council of Sabang led by Punong Bgy Levi Sta. Ana Sr., that dream is now becoming a reality. The National Government, through DOTC and PFDA, budgeted P100M for the construction of a fish port in Bgy. Sabang, complete with an ice plant and cold storage facilities.
This afternoon, I found the chance to step out of Papa’s wake for an hour to visit the site and consult with the barangay officials and some municipal officials on the developments of the project. Hopefully, everything will be fully operational by the end of this year. – Cong Leni Robredo
