It really boosts my morale when people utter sincere words of encouragement as well as confidence that I would succeed in my reelection bid. 



I am very thankful to Senate President Vicente Sotto III for his kind words and his assurance that local candidates of the Nationalist People’s Coalition, our party, would push hard for my candidacy when the campaign period for locals sets in. 



At talagang nakakataba ng puso ang sinabi ni Senate President Sotto na naniniwala siya na ako ay winnable.



I also would like to thank my seatmates Senators Win Gatchalian and Joel Villanueva, and Senate Majority Leader Migz Zubiri; Senators Ping Lacson and Loren Legarda, and all the other senators who have similarly inspiring words for me.



As far as I am concerned, the motivation coming from my peers is recognition of my satisfactory performance in the Senate.


                                                                                                     They, and the rest of the Senate community, have witnessed up close and personal my diligence and hardwork for the legislation of measures that I feel would raise the quality of life of every Filipino, GINHAWA NG BAYAN, like the Universal Health Care law and the Creation of Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development law.



Ako ay naniniwala na ang aking mga nagawa ay hindi nalilingid sa ating mga kababayan kaya tiwala ako na ako ay kanilang sinusuportahan at pinaniniwalaan. ######
