August 22, 2017

SAN MANUEL, TARLAC- Political leaders Tarlac province said they would block any member of the Aquino family to seek any elective support for the 2019 elections, Mayor Benjamin Tesoro said on Monday in the program to commemorating the 34th anniversary of the assassination of former Sen. Benigno.-“Ninoy” Aquino Jr.

“Never again to [an] Aquino in public service,” Tesoro said in a speech he gave during the program.

This is a decision made at a Nationalist People's Coalition meeting in Paniqui town in Tarlac on Saturday, he said. Kris, runs for the governor of Tarlac, and a relative, Sen. Paolo Benigno The "Bam" Aquino IV, runs for president.

“Everyone who attended that meeting did not like [the Aquinos] anymore because after many years that they have been in power, nothing [beneficial] happened to Tarlac,” said Tesoro, referring to the administration of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, the slain former senator’s son.

“If there are improvements in my town, it’s because we worked hard for these. Only Concepcion [town] benefited from Noynoy,” Tesoro said.

“Yellow still means we are brave, it means we are watching,” said Emilio Martin Enciso, 16, grandson of the late Sen. Agapito “Butz” Aquino who was guest speaker there.

He said Ninoy Aquino was not concerned with the shortcomings of his widow, former President Corazon Aquino, and his son, Noynoy, and other Aquino government officials.

“Ninoy was different. His passion to serve Tarlac, the country and the Filipino people was different. And I am personal witness to that. He had a comfortable life but he chose to sacrifice for the people,” he said.

During the program, Vice Mayor Cresencia Tesoro, read Noynoy’s message, which was emailed to her. Noynoy thanked the town residents for remembering his father on his death anniversary.
