“Kung sinuwerte sana tayo at talagang panahon ng tatay ko, habang nakaupo siya lahat ng Kapitan steady din.”

Governor Imee Marcos said as the guest of honor at the Great Barangay Orientation before the newly elected officials of Tagaytay last Thursday.

Governor Marcos marked her speech with reminiscing the era of the late president Ferdinand Marcos, “Original na plano ng tatay ko, ni Presidente Ferdinand Marcos ay palaganapin pa ang kapangyarihan ng barangay.”

“Pero meron talaga dati gusto niya yung kapitan kaakbay niya, walang gagalaw, walang lilipat, walang papalit basta tao niya nandyan palagi,” she added.

She also reiterated how the Barangay officials are always the front liners when executing laws from the national government.

“Ang [kapitan], sabi niya[ President Ferdind Marcos] iyan ang pinaka-importante kasi kahit ano pang galing nang  Presidente, Gobernador, o Mayor. Kapag hindi nai-implement ng Kapitan wala ring mangyayari kasi kayo naman ang frontline.”

Thus explained her wish to help the barangay officials with their retirement especially to those who served the country most of their life.

“Retirement, yung mga nagreretire na mga barangay kapitan na nanilbihan ng 25 years, kapag tumanda walang insurance. Deka-dekadang serbisyo hindi man lang sinuklian ng healthcare.”
