The People Power of today is Vote Power!
This was emphasized by Sen. Bam Aquino as he called on the Filipinos to air their grievances with government through the ballot in the May elections.
“Alam kong nakakatakot ngayon, pero kailangan nating ipakita ang ating tapang sa pamamagitan ng ating boto,” said Sen. Bam.
“I’m hoping come May, iyong lakas ng taumbayan, mapakita ulit,” said Sen. Bam, who is running for re-election under the Otso Diretso slate.
Sen. Bam admitted that being part of the opposition is very difficult during these times, but somebody has to put the government in check and making them accountable for their actions.
“This is a gargantuan task, but still it ought to be done. And somebody has got to do it,” said Sen. Bam.
Sen. Bam is hoping that voters will select senatorial candidates who will work for the people’s welfare and will uplift lives of Filipino families.
The senator said he’s banking on his legislative accomplishments to earn him a second term in the Senate.
In his first term, Sen. Bam has 35 laws to his name, including the landmark free college law, which he pushed as principal sponsor during his term as chairman of the Committee on Education in the 17th Congress.
Sen. Bam also pushed for the passage of the Go Negosyo Act, which has established more than 1,000 Negosyo Centers in different parts of the country, catering to the needs of Filipinos who want to start or expand their own business.
“Unang-una, iyong track record natin, nandiyan naman. Iyong mga natulungan natin sa Free College Law, naririyan na rin po yan,” said Sen. Bam
If he wins a second term, Sen. Bam said he will push for reforms that will ensure good jobs for all college and K-12 graduates and other education reforms such as improvement of educational facilities and additional benefits for teachers.
