Gapan, Nueva Ecija Mayor Emeng Pascual announced on his Facebook Page Live post, Sunday, March 22, that he will donate 4.5 Million pesos from his savings. The savings is from his 45 months of salary as the mayor of the city. His donation will be added to the 34 Million funds of the Gapan government, which needs 16 Million pesos to give 50 kilos of rice to 34,000 houses in the city. He then added 1.5 Million pesos to close it to 6 Million pesos. The 10 Million pesos needed would be from Kapitan Boy Pascual and Bokal Joy Pascual, he said.
In addition to the sack of rice per house, the Gapan residents will receive 3000 pieces of eggs (via Fresh Egg Inc) and canned goods daily. He will also give chickens to the residents, which they could cook into Filipino favorite dishes, adobo or tinola. He will buy the chickens to the poultry farm owners so they don’t need to sell them outside Gapan city.
During his 56-minute Facebook Live post, he answered questions from the Gapan residents amid the enhanced community quarantine. This is in order to maintain zero positive infection of the coronavirus in the city. He also give his appreciation to those who send donations including the six elementary grade schoolers who send their 1800-peso savings.
A netizen named Omar posts some of those mentioned in Mayor Emeng Pascual’s Facebook Live post, which is well-received especially by the Gapan residents. The post eventually went viral. Below is the full transcript of the post.
50 Kilos of rice per family para sa taga Gapan.
3000 pcs of eggs will be given daily to the residents of Gapan.
He donated his 4.5million salary na naipon simula ng naging Mayor sya ng Gapan dahil short ng 16million ang pondo para mkapag bigay ng 50kilos per family. He also added na dadagdagan nya daw po ng 1.5milyon ang naunang 4.5milyon para sumaktong 6Milyon. Ang natitirang 10milyon ay maaaring manggaling kay Kapitan Boy Pascual at kay Bokal Joy Pascual.
He even closed the city to protect the residents of Gapan. If i’m not mistaken sya ang nag initiate na maglock down na nasundan ng mga katabing bayan sa Nueva Ecija dahil para sakanya ang Gapan ang first line papasok ng Nueva Ecija.
That’s our mayor right there working like a robot na hindi na nkakapag pahinga for the sake of his people.
Nakiusap din sya sa mga taga Gapan na wag na sanang ibenta sa iba o sa labas ang mga inani nila dahil nangangailangan po ang bayan ng Gapan ng bigas pra po ang Bayan napo ng Gapan ang syang bibili ng mga bigas na iyan.
Kung may Vico ang Pasig, may Yorme ang Manila, may Emeng naman ang Gapan.
Dagdag ko lang. Wala syang naging kalaban nung eleksyon.
