The Federation of Parent-Teachers Association (PTA) in Quezon City has endorsed the vice presidential bid of Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
The federation signed on Thursday a manifesto “Wall of Support” at Asamba Compound, Baesa, Quezon City. The manifesto was signed by officials of the federation and representatives from other organizations.
Marcos also signed the manifesto, saying, “With humility, I accept.”
The group cited the role Marcos played in the passage of key measures like the SK Reform bill, or Senate Bill (SB) No. 2401, entitled, “An Act Establishing Enabling Mechanisms for Meaningful Youth Participation in Nation Building, Strengthening the Sangguniang Kabataan, Creating the Municipal, City and Provincial Youth Development Council, and for Other Purposes,” which he authored and sponsored as chairman of the Senate Committee on Local Government.
Marcos is also the author and sponsor of SB No. 12, entitled, “An Act Providing Barangay Officials, Including Barangay Tanods, Members of the Lupon ng Tagapamayapa, Barangay Health Workers and Day Care Workers Retirement Benefits,” which was already passed on third reading in the Senate.
The measure seeks to provide retirement benefit for Punong Barangays in the amount of P100,000; P80,000 for a Sangguniang Barangay member, a barangay treasurer and secretary, barangay tanod, members of the Lupon ng Tagapamayapa, health workers and P50,000 for barangay day care workers.
