Negrense running
as LP senator


Negrense Alex Lacson is running for senator under the Liberal Party.

Lacson, a lawyer, told the DAILY STAR he was invited to run for senator by LP presidential candidate Benigno Aquino III and his running mate Mar Roxas, who told him they wanted a fresh face, and a completely non-traditional politician.

“We have to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves – our nation’s children who are too young to fight for their dreams, and the poorest of the poor who do not have the means to fight for themselves,” Lacson said.moremoremore
