(SAN JUAN CITY, Philippines) – Honasan-Zamora Alliance in San Juan founded on “Magtulungan para sa Mamamayan”. Mayor Francis Zamora emphatically endorsed the Senatorial bid of Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan II and attested that Honasan made good on his promises to San Juan City. He said:
“Mga minamahal kong Sanjuañeno, nasa harap po natin ang tao na siyang dahilan kung bakit ang lahat ng pampublikong magaaral ay may tablets. Kung naalala po ninyo nung 2019 sa ating proclamation rally dito po sa plaza, yan po ang pinangako ng ating mahal na Senador, na totoo naman tinupad para sa ating mga kabataan. Kaya ako po bilang inyong mayor hinihingi ko po ang inyong supporta, ibalik natin sa senado, Senador Gringo Honasan!”
Honasan attended the proclamation rally of Mayor Francis Zamora and Team Makabagong San Juan in Filoil Flying V Arena, San Juan City last March 25, 2022.
San Juan has always been close to Honasan’s heart, which became most apparent during his time as Secretary of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).
During Honasan’s tenure as ICT chief, San Juan was chosen to be one of the first LGUs to receive tablets, laptops, and units of pocket Wi-Fi from the DICT under its Digital Teachers and Learners Program. San Juan was also selected for the pilot implementation of its Vaccine Administration System and the DICT also partnered with the San Juan LGU for the vaccination program for Information Technology and Business Process Management industry workers.
Addressing the crowd in San Juan, Honasan said: “Tatlong taon na ang nakalipas. Pangako ko noon sa inyo, kay Mayor Francis at kay Congressman Ronny. Kapag hinirang tayo na Secretary ng DICT, uunahin natin ang San Juan sa free wifi, tablet, pocket wifi, at lahat ho ng maaring iambag ng DICT para sa ikauunlad ng San Juan.”
Honasan also thanked San Juan, saluted all their efforts especially that of the frontliners and urged everyone to help one another. “Magtulungan po tayo.”
Gringo is currently running as Senator as an independent candidate, adopted by PDP-Laban, BBM-Sara Uniteam and the Lacson-Sotto tandem.
In addition to his stint as DICT Secretary, he is also a decorated soldier and four-term Senator.
