Santos Recto: Country Needs a Mother like Leni Robredo
By Sammy F. Martin
Nov. 8 (PNA) -- Star for all seasons and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos
Recto on Sunday said the country needs a mother like image of Daang Matuwid
Vice Presidential candidate Leni Robredo.
"The country needs a mother like Leni Robredo." Santos-Recto said.
Santos-Recto made this declaration as she expressed support behind the
Liberal Party's vice presidential candidate during a party meeting in Lipa
“Si Ma'am Leni isang lawyer, isang ekonomista. Kung may leaders tayo sa
gobyerno na mga barako, ito iyong tinatawag nating mga providers. Ang
providers, kailangan po andoon din ang ilaw,”Gov. Vi said.
“Importante ang may pulso ng nanay. Kapag may touch ng pulso ng nanay, ito
pong mangangalaga sa ating asawa't mga anak. Bilang isang ina, alam po namin
ang pulso't pangangailangan ng buong pamilya,” she added.
Gov. Vi stressed that the country needs a mother's care, especially now that
the society's moral values are slowly deteriorating.
“We need a touch of a mother at iyan po si Ma'am Leni,” Gov. Vi emphasized.
Gov. VI also described the partnership between LP presidential bet Mar Roxas
and Robredo as perfect, with the former Interior secretary acting as the
country's pillar and Robredo serving as society's guiding light.
Aside from Gov. Vi, different national and local officials threw their
support behind the LP tandem, including Sen. Ralph Recto, Cong. Sonny
Collantes, Cong. Rannie Abu and Batangas Vice Gov. Mark Leviste.
Mayors, vice mayors, councilors and board members from different cities and
municipalities of the province attended the event.
Leni Robredo, widow of Naga City Mayor and DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo and
a mother of three, is a pro bono lawyer for the poor, before she became a
congresswoman. She accepted to run for the vice presidency last October 5,
