BEFORE attending the Blue Ribbon Committee’s fifth hearing on the problems besetting the Bureau of Corrections, Sen. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go went to San
Pablo City, Laguna for the groundbreaking rites of a bridge project in Barangay Sta. Ana.
Go promised to help rebuild the 56-year-old bridge, which collapsed in January this year.
The senator lauded the Department of Public Works and Highways, President Rodrigo Duterte and other agencies for their help.
Go was one of the first who inspected the collapsed bridge.
The senator said he saw the need to immediately stabilize the livelihood of the people of San Pablo and normalize the mobility of residents, commuters, basic goods and services in two more villages, Barangay San Isidro and Santisimo Rosario, which the bridge connects.
“Nagkaroon po kaagad ng pondo… Pera naman po ito ng tao. Para naman po ito sa kanilang ikabubuti (Funds were immediately made available… this is the money of the people. This is for their welfare),” he added.
Go told residents that he would continue to be their bridge to the President.
The senator also offered to help residents avail of hospital services and a place to stay for those who need medical attention, particularly those needing to visit doctors and specialists in Manila.
The senator also extended help to 23 families in Barangay Nueva in San Pedro, Laguna who were hit by fire.
The victims, who were gathered at the Town Center in San Pedro Complex, received financial assistance and groceries from Go.
