Husband ain’t coming back to the House: Stella Quimbo explains why she’s running for reelection

0 90

Marikina second district Rep. Stella Quimbo will be running for reelection in 2022.

In a Facebook post, Quimbo said she wants to serve for another term in the House of Representatives even if she’s confident that her husband, former congressman Miro Quimbo, can do an equally impressive job in legislation.

“Pinaglaban ko kayo sa Kongreso na magkaroon ng ayuda, bakuna, at pati kalinga para sa frontliners. Salamat at binigyan ninyo ako ng pagkakataon para magsilbi sa isang napaka-challenging na panahon. Subalit hindi pa tapos ang laban,” she said.

Quimbo expressed optimism that the residents who voted her into office in 2019 will make her reelection bid successful.

“Iniimbita ko kayo na suriin nang mabuti ang aking naging trabaho at pati na rin ang mga gawain ng aming opisina sa nakaraang halos tatlong taon. I stand by our hardwork and performance. Hindi sana kalabisan na sabihing hindi ko binigo ang inyong sagradong tiwala na ipinagkaloob ninyo sa akin noong 2019,” she said.

“Panalangin ko na sana’y bigyan po ninyo muli ng pagkakataong magsilbi ang isang TEACHER, isang EKONOMISTA, at isang INA sa Kongreso,” Quimbo added.
