He said that the city decided to buy bulk supplies from farmers in Benguet in an effort to give fresh veggies for the daily meals of the local cleaners, healthcare workers, as well as checkpoint officials.

“GULAY GALING BENGUET! Kulang ang supply ng gulay sa palengke ngayon,” he said. “Kaya malaking tulong itong bigay nina Cong Ong ng Ang Probinsiyano Parylist… at malaking tulong din ito sa mga magsasaka ng Benguet.”

He added that the city is going to use the purchased veggies in the Community Kitchen that could help approximately 3,000 frontliners in the city.

The Mayor is deemed one of the most controversial politicians today as he is admired by quite a few people in the country because of his heart and passion in public service. He is 30 years old at the moment. However, it seems that he has already done a lot for his city.

Not so long ago, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) summoned the politician as he allowed tricycle drivers in the city to operate. The authorities said he allegedly violated the “enhanced community quarantine” protocol.
