Gensan Tunafest gets better and better each year, says Chiz

One of the most awaited programs of the series of events in Gensan’s Tuna Festival is the Fishtahan sa Fishport on September 6th. It showcases simultaneous games held in different venues (markets) in the city’s Fishport complex. Gracing the affair were Congressman Pedro Acharon Jr., Mayor Darlene Custodio and Senator Chiz Escudero.  

Sen. Escudero heads the Senate Committees on Justice and Human Rights, Joint Oversight Committees on Ecological Solid Waste Management Act, Joint Congressional Oversight Committee on the Clean Air Act, and Committee on Environment and Natural Resources. He spent the entire morning visiting the market sites for tuna catch (it’s working day as usual), taking time to pose for photos and chat with the fisherfolks, vendor and fish port officials.

A brief press conference was held during lunch time. The well-loved senator answered all questions straight to the point. He discussed issues on Pnoy’s RAT Plan, state of agriculture and the environment, the new appointments for DILG and DOJ and the legacy of his father that he intends to uphold as a public servant- that is, the legacy of a good name and public service.  He ended the presscon with a remark that the Tuna Festival gets better and better each year and he won’t be surprised when the event would level-up once more, next year.
