UNDER the leadership of equally dedicated and
competent Mayor Arthur Robes and wife, Rep. Rida
Robes, the shining and rising City of San Jose Del Monte,
Bulacan, will indubitably soon become a highly-urbanized
city as residents will go out to vote during a plebiscite by
the end of October this year.
Lucky I am along with my family and relatives to be
residents of this booming city that’s home to a number of
big shopping malls, factories, posh subdivisions and new
medical center, among others.
The tandem of this great couple is really a blessing for the
city people as both have been so hooked in transforming
SJDM into a more bustling, competitive and developed
No former elective city officials had unselfishly devoted
their time and even personal resources and initiated pro-
people and pro-poor programs except this amazing Robes
Lucky 30 fishermen
Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco has awarded 30-footer
fiberglass 16-horsepower marine engine ‘NavoBangka’
and fishing nets to 30 registered Navoteño fisherfolk.
Tiangco and brother, Mayor John Rey, said that more of
their constituents have been relying on fishing for their
livelihood but they have been struggling for years because
most of them have no boats of their own.
“By giving their own boats, we help ensure that they earn
enough to support their family and sustain an improved
quality of life,” Tiangco said.
The Tiangco brothers claimed that it is important that their
boats are registered with CAO so that they can avail of
benefits from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic
Resources such as fuel subsidy.

Camp’ after its three-year hiatus due to the Covid-19
