Bataan Cong Roman hopes for unity, pride among Bataenos
Bataan 1st District Representative Geraldine Roman joined his “kababayan” in celebrating the province’s 262nd founding anniversary on Friday with certain hopes.
“Fellow Bataenos, be proud of the rich history of our Province,” the politiko wrote on her Facebook page.
“Let us work as one for the continuing glory and prosperity of our beloved, beautiful, and historical Province of Bataan,” she added.
Roman beams with pride in recalling how the province was established on Jan. 11, 1757 by then Spanish Governor-General Pedro Manuel de Arandia.
“Through all the challenges and adversities, the people of Bataan has persevered,” she said.
In honoring her home province, Roman said one of first things she did in Congress “was to file a bill that would commemorate our founding anniversary and recognize January 11 as ‘BATAAN FOUNDATION DAY’.”
“It is my hope that it will bring our community closer, and enrich our relationships through our shared history and love for Bataan,” the lawmaker said.
