Yassi Pressman continues to make the rounds in different places nationwide as she campaigns for AP Partylist #AkoyPilipino, a partylist advocating for the transport and livelihood sector.
The AP Team on March 13, Sunday, started the day with a visit to Tubod, Iligan and an event in Iligan City Plaza. From Iligan, Pressman and AP Partylist visited the towns of Gigaquit and Claver in Surigao del Norte to continue their campaign trail.
“Hindi po kami ang party-list na lumalabas lang kapag eleksyon. Alam po ito ni Yassi at nagpapasalamat kami na nakasama namin kayo mula pa noong simula ng pandemya. Sabay-sabay tayong nag-bayanihan para sa kapwa nating mga kababayan, at patuloy lang natin itong gagawin,” AP Partylist first nominee, Rep. Ronnie Ong said in his message to the Surigaonons.
Ong was nicknamed “the frontliner Congressman” by PeopleAsia because of his out-of-the-box Covid-19 Bayanihan programs that goes beyond the policy work of a legislator. Programs like #LibrengGulay which supplied community kitchens in Metro Manila with vegetables from Benguet.
He also started the #LibrengSakay program which serviced health workers from various hospitals to their residences, and #LibrengTablets for public school teachers, as well as established 36 Eskwela Hub e-learning centers nationwide for free wifi and PC use of students.
Thousands of supporters and fans of Yassi Pressman and AP Partylist attended the grand rallies in Iligan and Surigao.
The AP Team also visited the island of Siargao where they assisted and partnered with local community kitchens in ongoing feeding programs for those still affected by Typhoon Odette. Both animal welfare advocates,
Yassi Pressman and AP Partylist Rep. Ronnie Ong ended their visit in Siargao with a free spay and neuter event, and establishing a Community PAWntry for the island dogs with Pawssion Project PH and Puppy Puddle Siargao.
