Everyone who attended that meeting did not like [the Aquinos] anymore because after many years that they have been in power, nothing [beneficial] happened to Tarlac.
If there are improvements in my town, it’s because we worked hard for these. Only Concepcion [town] benefited from Noynoy.
Mayor Tesoro also expressed his disappointment that former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III did not attend the town’s commemorative program for his father. This was the second time that he invited Noynoy to his town.
I have always believed that charity starts at home. But this did not happen in Tarlac.During the program, Vice Mayor Cresencia Tesoro, Mayor Tesoro's daughter, read Noynoy’s email and thanked the residents for remembering his father on his death anniversary.
