The tandem of former Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella and businessman Vladimir Gonzalez have outlined the Pamilya MKK (Magbinuligay Kita sa Kauswagan) 12-point agenda that seeks to address basic social concerns, like health issues, potable water supply, employment and economic growth, a press release from the group said.
Puentevella, a three-term congressman, said the campaign platform is divided into three components that address economic growth, social change and good governance.
He said each component has four areas assigned to MKK candidates according to their individual advocacies and fields of expertise.
On top of the party’s economic platform is Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry president and councilor bet Frank Carbon, for sustainable environment and energy together with Ann Marie Palermo, Puentevella said.
Carbon also partners with former councilor Wilson Gamboa for business development and infrastructure, as design professor Raymond Fuentes and former councilor Jocelle Batapa-Sigue take on the city’s tourism programs and the promotion of culture and the arts, he said.
The information technology development will be handled by Batapa-Sigue and lawyer Andres Hagad, Puentevella said.
In the field of social services, Gamboa and broadcaster Marlon Solidum will take the lead in education and livelihood skills; responsive health care and effective delivery of social services will also be handled by Solidum, who pairs up with May Altarejos-Cueva; while youth leader and sportsman Kalaw Puentevella and newcomer Paolo Lacson will be on top of youth and sports development, he said in the press release.
Puentevella said Lacson will also be coordinating on urban planning and housing concern together with Fuentes.
