That lovely smile is so heart-melting. ☺ Meeting these wonderful children and their families was an eye opener about how important healthcare is. Working to see how we can improve the system and facilities of the Prieto Diaz Municipal Hospital here in Sorsogon. ❣#MahalKongSorsogon #SorsogonFirst
Last Friday, July 19, Evangelista shared in Instagram a moment of her discussing “plans for the future” with Escudero, in his office in Sorsogon.
To that, one follower, a certain @indaygirle, got curious and asked, “Are you going to run for government office?”
“I don’t need power or a position to help. My answer is no. Not for me,” answered Evangelista.
Evangelista has been involved in several outreach programs although not holding a public seat. One of her latest endeavors is an upcoming animal shelter which will provide services such as spaying, neutering and administering shots to animals.
Escudero was proclaimed as the new governor of Sorsogon last May after defeating his rival Vladimir Frivaldo. Prior to becoming provincial governor, Escudero also represented the 1st District of Sorsogon in the House of Representatives from 1998 to 2007. JB
