Gatchalian bros share ideas on housing and urban development with VP Leni


Politiko brothers, Senator Win Gatchalian and Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian, recently paid a courtesy call on Vice President Leni Robredo in her Quezon City Reception House office to share their ideas on housing and special education (SPED) projects.

Mayor Rex released a few photos of the said meeting on his official Facebook page, Tuesday (July 19), along with some kind words to the vice president who concurrently serves as chairperson of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council.

“Senator Win Gatchalian and I paid a courtesy call to our Vice President, Honorable Leni Robredo at her office in New Manila, Quezon City earlier today (Tuesday). We discussed our housing and in-city resettlement project – Disiplina Village to our new Housing and Urban Developing Coordinating Council chairperson,” Mayor Rex said.

“VP Leni also expressed in a recent UNICEF event that she wants to establish SPED Centers in all public schools and I showed her our locally-funded Valenzuela Special Education Center. Thank you, VP Leni for accomodating us. We hope you can visit Valenzuela City one of these days,” he added.

In an earlier FB post, Mayor Rex proudly shared photos of the facilities offered by the Valenzuela Special Education Center, which actually opened last January 22. It can accommodate at least 478 special children from public schools who are enrolled in occupational, physical and speech therapy sessions, early intervention care, and job transition skills program.
