Tarlac City is for BBM-Sara: Mayor Angeles

TARLAC CITY – Tarlac City Mayor Cristy Angeles on Saturday said the vote-rich city is for UniTeam’s presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos and vice-presidential aspirant Sara Duterte.

Speaking before a huge red and green crowd at the Tarlac City Plaza, Angeles introduced Marcos as the “next president of the Republic of the Philippines”.

Isisigaw natin ng malakas na ang Tarlac City is for BBM-Sara. Tapos na po ‘yung nakaraan — it’s time to move on. Susulong na po tayo. Kalimutan na po natin ang mga nangyari noon sapagkat kailangan natin ng pagkakisa para sa magandang kinabukasan,” she said, drawing loud cheers from the audience that packed the plaza outside the city hall.

She added: “Ito ang araw na pinakahihintay nating lahat dahil kasama natin ang susunod na pangulo ng Pilipinas na si Bongbong Marcos, kasama si Vice President Sara Duterte at ang ating UniTeam lineup”.

Marcos’ visit in Tarlac, she said, is “history in the making” since the city is a known bailiwick of the Aquinos.

Tarlac is the home province of the late Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., the political rival of Marcos’ father, former President Ferdinand Marcos.

She appealed for unity and an end to the feud between colors, referring to the different political banners.

“Tapos na po ang away ng mga kulay. Nandidito nga siya ngayon para magkaisa ng tunay at mamumuno sa atin para tayo po ay lalong umunlad, dadalhin tayo sa tunay na kinabukasan sapagkat tayong lahat ay magkakaisa at magtutulungan,” Angeles said.

Tarlaceños affirmed their support as residents went outside of their homes to welcome the UniTeam caravan.

The event was held in two simultaneous activities to accommodate all the supporters of the BBM-Sara UniTeam ticket.

Davao City Mayor Sara thanked the people for the warm reception.

“Maraming salamat sa oras at oportunidad na ibinigay ninyo sa amin ngayong umaga na ito na makasama kayo, makilala kayo at makapagbigay ng mensahe para sa inyong lahat,” Duterte said.

Two more UniTeam grand rallies were also held in the afternoon at the Brgy. Cristo Rey Oval in Capas and Paniqui Public Auditorium. (PR
