KIBUNGAN, Benguet – After a grueling work week in Congress due to the budget deliberations, Appropriations Chairperson and Benguet Congressman Eric Yap spent the weekend break to visit his constituents in the remote area of Tacadang in Kibungan, Benguet.
“Even if Congress work gets demanding, we cannot set aside our district work. We will visit our constituents here in the province as much as we can, especially those in remote areas so we could hear and address their needs and other concerns.”
During his visit, Yap committed to donate four (4) units of sewing machine for the community’s education and livelihood. Earlier, Yap also distributed relief packs to the families affected by the pandemic.
“We are always looking for long-term solutions to address the needs of our kababayans in Benguet. We are working with a grassroots approach – we consult with them so we could come up with effective and sustainable mechanisms to improve their living conditions.”
The Benguet Congressman also committed to provide funding for infrastructure in the remote area of Tacadang.
“We will figure out the funding for a road opening in Tacadang to lessen their travel time. This shall provide more opportunities to the families as it shall ease their delivery of products and their access to services available in the town proper. Also, we will allocate funding for the construction of a new school building for Senior High in Tacadang National High School.” Yap noted.
“Our purpose here is to represent and serve the people of Benguet. We shall visit and bring services to families and communities in the province, no matter how remote their area is. Instead of them going to our office, we are extending our public service to all of our constituents by personally going to their barangays,” Yap pronounced.
