Statement of Bacolod Councilor Caesar Z. Distrito

Re: Being top SP performer from January - Dec. 2013

"I am humbled by the support of my colleagues in the SP, as without them seeing the wisdom and importance of the 8 ordinances and the 430 resolutions resolutions that I authored, the same will not be approved.

This is our primary duty as councilor, which is to legislate and make policy direction.

And this is to prove to those 76, 000 Bacolodnons who believe in me that their votes were not wasted, and they can say that I deserve to be in the City Council.
