HE COULD MAKE IT. The offer from President Benigno Simeon Aquino III for
Congressman Albee Benitez, to run for senator is a once in a lifetime offer, a
chance to possibly become the country’s youngest member of the Upper Chamber in
the year 2016. Some would say: that is, if he makes it as senator.
And offering a realistic, doable analysis, we would also say, why not?
For indeed, the young congressman could make it. Here’s why.
Albee Benitez comes from Negros Occidental and therefore, Negros Island. If
one thinks deeply about it, he also has kins in Luzon and has rich, political
experiences in public service, for was it not true that an aunt or a
grandmother, Helena Benitez, intelligent and influential, is the founder of the
Philippine Women’s University (PWU).
