Teodorico "Nonong" Haresco Jr shares his Platform on Education, Infrastructure, Health and Livelihood

When I first met Cong. Haresco, he was a bit quiet, medyo tipid magsalita. Maybe because during the first time I met him, medyo madami syang appointments because that was Christmas season. This time, I met a different Cong. Haresco. He looks cool, parang walang kaproble-problema at all, despite the fact na malapit na ang kampayahan.

Cong. Haresco is running for Congressman this May 2019 elections in the 2nd District of Aklan. I am not campaigning for him but I just want others to see how important are his platform not just to his province but to the whole country as well because if he wins, he will be serving as one of the lawmakers of this country. Lawmakers are the people we depend on to bring public service much closer and much rewarding for the citizen especially to those really in need.



For me, a good platform includes no "too good to be true" promises. A platform should be concrete, feasible and possible. A good platform is not just attractive because of educational attainment and awards received by the person. A good platform should be positive and it should drive participation from people to people.

Nonong Haresco's platform is focused on important aspects on the daily lives of every Pinoy. It is geared towards infrastructure, health, and livelihood.

Dahil Panalo tayo sa Imprastraktura!

Nonong understands very well how important is an efficient and strong infrastructure. Infrastructure is really important for economic growth. Infrastructure makes it easier to engage in economic activity. But while it is good to build, build, build; we should also examine how this will affect others especially the people at the bottom of "the pyramid". 

Just like the proposal to build a 1.9km bridge to link Bocaray and Caticlan. It is something that Nonong is not in favor of because it will kill micro-entrepreneurship and community-based businesses. In this case, I also believe that the risks outweigh the benefits.


Dahil Panalo tayo sa Kalusugan!

Nonong understands how hard it is for some families to pay their hospital bills because he had been in that situation where he can't even pay the bill after a gall bladder operation. 

Now that the Universal Health Care is already a law, I firmly believe that despite the lack of funds; this law will provide a lot of benefits to the needy with someone like Haresco in the Congress.


Dahil Panalo tayo sa Kabuhayan!

Nonong has long been an advocate of micro-entrepreneurship. Being a microentrepreneur at a young age, he always believes that Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are crucial for the economic growth and stability of any country and play a vital role especially for developing countries as they facilitate economic activity and provide employment thus contributing to poverty reduction. 

So apart from the many bills he authored and co-authored to strengthen and empower the MSMEs sector in the country, he wants to monitor BSP lending practices. The BSP has allocated 9% loanable amount to MSMEs but only around 0.01% is given to them. The fact is, a large amount goes to the conglomerate owned by big companies.
