In her short speech, Dizon first thanked God and her supporters led by the governor and her husband Rodolfo “Bong” Pineda and their son, Vice Gov. Dennis Pineda, after she was proclaimed winner by Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Pampanga chief Myrvi Fabia late Tuesday afternoon (August 2).

“I promise to truly serve and with utmost sincerity,” added Dizon, who became a Second District Board Member in 2011 after her mother died. She did not run for board member in 2013 to concentrate on her family.

Dizon also expressed gratitude to her four brothers – Arpie, Tristan, Glen and Porac Vice Mayor Dexter David – for their unwavering support.
