Nothing but pure love for seniors – Cojuangco


PURE love and respect will be accorded to senior citizens of Pangasinan, by giving them a spacious and comfortable building as their second home in every town or city.

In this facility, the elderly could gather for their meetings or celebrate their special occasions like birthdays with their families and friends.

If by destiny, he said he would be elected as the next governor, his planned modern structure with amenities for lolos and lolas could enable them to relax and enjoy, sing and dance, do some exercise, or simply read their favorite newspapers or magazines.

These and more are part of the vision and mission of former Pangasinan fifth district Rep. Mark Cojuangco, a gubernatorial candidate in the May 9 elections.

Cojuangco shared this dream with senior citizens in the capital town of Lingayen during their Senior Citizens’ Night on Dec. 29 held at Servillano dela Cruz Auditorium as part of their annual town fiesta celebration in honor of the solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord.

Senior citizens are among the closest to the heart of Cojuangco who is now 58 years old.

Cojuangco has been blessed materially in life but he wants a deeper meaning and purpose by sharing his blessings and serving his beloved fellow Pangasinenses.

He said like his dad, former Ambassador Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco Jr, and mom Gretchen, senior citizens need more time, love and care after long years of toiling and providing for their families and children.

Cojuangco said the enemy of senior citizens is loneliness, thus, providing them with a comfortable building where they would mingle with other people or fellow seniors could ease this feeling.

He said the elderly in every town or city can have their joint birthday celebrations in their Senior Citizens Building, with some help from their respective local government units.

When Mark’s wife, Fifth District Rep. Kimi Cojuangco, was mayor of Sison town, he provided part of his congressional funds to build a beautiful senior citizens building.

During the Lingayen Senior Citizens’ Night, Cojuangco was warmly welcomed by local officials led by Mayor Josefina “Iday” Castañeda.

Honored during the event were senior citizens for their immense contributions, like: Outstanding Barangay Senior Citizens Presidents Jose Verzosa (Barangay Estanza), Mariano Lobien (Barangay Capandanan), Claudio Molano (Barangay Balococ), Gerardo Tandoc (Barangay Domalandan East), Agustin Genove (Barangay Domalandan Center), Maria Mendoza (Barangay Dulag) and Corazon de Venecia (Barangay Namolan).

Also recognized were the following: Special Recognition Most Outstanding FSCA President of Pangasinan was Jose Verzosa while Posthumous Awards were for Geronima Cumpio of Barangay Libsong East and Virginia Nicolas of Barangay Tonton.
