Rep. Jose Antonio “Kuya” Sy-Alvarado (1st District, Bulacan), in a press conference on Tuesday, expressed pride and delight following the positive trust and approval ratings of his fellow-Bulakenyo, Speaker Alan Peter “Compañero” Cayetano, in the Pulse Asia Survey done last September 16 to 22, 2019. “Ikinagagalak ko po at ng buong lalawigan ng Bulacan ang kinalabasan ng approval at trust ratings sa pinakabagong Pulse Asia Survey ng ating Speaker of the House na kapwa ko dugong Bulakenyo… Ipinagmamalaki ng dakilang lalawigan ng Bulacan ang pagkilala sa ating Speaker,” he said.
Speaker Cayetano received a 64% approval rating and a 62% trust rating last month, ranking third among President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, Senate President Vicente Sotto III, Vice President Leni Robredo and Supreme Court Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin, respectively. In addition, the rating of the Speaker also marked the first time ever that a House leader ranked higher than Vice President Robredo. Sy-Alvarado then noted that Speaker Cayetano further acquired the lowest disapproval rating of 6% among the five highest officials in the country.
It was underscored by the legislator that the House of Representatives, under the leadership of Speaker Cayetano, maintains its ultimate goal to provide quality service to the public. “Tunay pong naniniwala ang bawat kinatawan ng Kamara de Representante ng Pilipinas, na sa aming puso, isip at salita na ang paglilingkod sa kapwa ay pagmamahal sa Diyos,” he said.
Rep. Sy-Alvarado then reassured the chamber’s commitment to help improve the lives of the Filipinos, saying that “Sa lahat po ng aming kababayan na nagtitiwala at kinikilala ang aming pamamahala, asahan niyo po na ipagpapatuloy namin ito at pilit na hihigitan pa. Sa mga hindi naman natutuwa pa, asahan po ninyo na hindi namin kayo susukuan.”
