“Please do not forget my son, Mar Roxas”.
That was the call of Judy Araneta Roxas last night in apparent reference to the Local Government Secretary's expected bid for the presidency in 2016, before a crowd of Negrenses leaders, most of whom were from the sugar industry, at a dinner in Bacolod City.
Mrs. Roxas, at the dinner hosted by National Federation of Sugarcane Planters president, Enrique Rojas, and his wife, Lourdes, told the crowd there is only one thing she is asking of them, not to forget her son who is a Negrense.
