Pinay int’l beauty queen pays courtesy call on Angeles City politikos
The Filipina beauty queen who recently won the Miss Tourism World Intercontinental 2019 title in China paid a courtesy call on officials of Angeles City in Pampanga on Monday.
According to the city government information office, Francesca Taruc, 20, who was born in San Luis town and raised in Angeles City, was warmly welcomed by Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan and Vice Mayor Bryan Matthew Nepomuceno during the city government’s flag raising ceremony.
Other officials and employees, as well as Taruc’s friends and fans witnessed her homecoming.
“Angeles City is indeed privileged to have a beauty queen whose backstory is more than the usual plot of failure and conquest,” Pamintuan said.
“You are destined to triumph and give pride to the city, just like the legacy of your ancestors,” he added as he noted that Taruc’s grandfather is HUKBALAHAP Supremo Luis Taruc, while her father is former city councilor Dr. Romy Taruc.
According to the city information office, Pamintuan regarded the beauty queen’s grandfather and father as “symbols of heroism, patriotism and philanthropy.”
Pamintuan pledged the city government’s support to Taruc’s future endeavors, which include a plan to join the Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant, try a career in show business, and get involved in charitable activities.
