Solemn and holy ob­ser­vance

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

THE HOLY OB­SER­VANCE of the Holy Week by Catholics and Chris­tians around the world al­lows us to take a re­spite from our worldly ac­tiv­i­ties.

Time to pause and rec­ol­lect the sac­ri­fices of the Holy One which tra­di­tion and records dis­close that were the turn­ing point of man’s re­demp­tion from sins.

Time to re­flect and rein­vig­o­rate our minds and spirit to a no­ble cause.

Time to pon­der on our next moves and ac­tions to im­prove our­selves and turn our backs on bad habits and im­pure thoughts. Well...

Like the ven­er­ated pa­tron saint of hon­est-to-good­ness work­ers, St. Joseph, An­ge­les City Coun­cilor Joseph ‘PG’Ponce has shown true grit and de­ter­mi­na­tion, thus prov­ing him­self wor­thy of the man­date given him by An­ge­les City vot­ers.

March 19 hap­pens to be the na­tal day of Coun­cilor Joseph and is also cel­e­brated as the Feast Day of St. Joseph.

He is up for re­elec­tion come May 13, 2019 and he is con­fi­dent the vot­ers may put him back to of­fice again.

He has au­thored and/or coau­thored or­di­nances and res­o­lu­tions rel­e­vant to the needs and re­quire­ments of his con­stituents and he plans to spon­sor more, in his next term.

Other hope­fuls worth our scru­tiny and votes are: Ralph Lau­ren ‘Basti’ David, a for­mer Dau ka­gawad and, of course, Nino ‘RS’de los Reyes, whose cre­den­tials I have writ­ten in pre­vi­ous col­umns.

In An­ge­les City, we could con­sider Jay Pe­layo, Coun­cilors Joseph ‘PG’ Ponce and Amos Rivera, all com­pe­tent and re­source­ful in­di­vid­u­als who are def­i­nitely as­sets to the Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lung­sod.

There are oth­ers, young and qual­i­fied to be elected and be al­lowed the chance to prove their worth. Other proven can­di­dates are for­mer barangay chair­men Jerry Magsino and Ran­nie de Leon, both from Barangay Tabun, Ma­bal­a­cat City.

Like­wise, the re­elec­tion­ists Ed­die D. Sotto, Jerry Basilio and Jeng Yu­mul de­serve to be voted for an­other term.
