Binay promises help
for children, sugar

BY CARLA GOMEZ

Senator-elect Nancy Binay yesterday told the DAILY STAR she will provide assistance to towns and cities of Negros Occidental for the benefit of children, and work to prevent smuggling of sugar and other agricultural products.

Binay was in Negros Occidental Saturday to witness the oath-taking of re-elected Mayor Andrew Montelibano before Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) in Murcia town.

Re-elected Murcia vice mayor Gerardo Rojas took his oath before Judge Mila Yap-Camiso.

SB members Johnny Reosura, Ruel Villarosa, Adrian Olimpo Sr., Joselino Santiago Jr., Sheila Gela, Norberto de los Reyes and Nicanor Constantino also took their oaths at the rites Saturday.

Binay said she joined the oath-taking rites in Murcia as the people in the town made her their number one senator.

As senator, Binay said her focus will be on children’s welfare for which she will provide projects, not only for Murcia but also for other parts of the province.

She is looking at the construction of daycare centers, providing tools for teaching to make learning fun, and books to help children aged 0 to 7 years old, Binay said.

She will also push for the campaign against illegal smuggling of sugar and other products, Binay said.*CPG
