Power Couple DPWH Sec. Mark Villar And Rep. Emmeline Aglipay Of Diwa Partylist Bare Their Latest Projects For 2018

DPWH SECRETARY MARK VILLAR and his wife Diwa Partylist Rep. Emmeline Aglipay hosted an intimate Christmas lunch for the entertainment press. Rep. Emmie happily reported that her book, “Living Better with Lupus”, is sold out in many bookstores as doctors themselves recommend it to their patients. Barangay health workers also read it so they can help in the early and correct diagnosis of the disease among lupus patients.

Emmie is also having a Hope for Lupus Fun Run this coming January and she’s inviting everyone to join it.This is her advocacy as she’s a lupus patient herself and she wans to educate Pinoys about this auto-immune disease that nearly crippled her. She credits her husband Mark for her recovery and always reminding her to live a stress-free life as stress is a big enemy of lupus. When you see her, you won’t suspect she has lupus as she looks so pretty.

In turn, Sec. Mark showed an audio-visual presentation about their projects at the DPWH that aims to alleviate the nightmarish traffic situation at EDSA. “Maraming bagong kalsadang bubuksan to be used as alternative routes, like the Laguna Lake Highway from Pasig to Bicutan, the new skyway, the road connecting SLEX to NLEX, the Harbor Link from the piers to NLEX na hindi na daraan sa Manila the 40,000 trucks that use our roads everyday para lumuwag ang EDSA,” he says. “Yung expressway going to Baguio, hanggang sa Pozorubio, Pangasinan na ngayon. Dati, hanggang Binalonan lang. And soon, hanggang sa Rosario, La Union na yan kaya mas mabilis na mag-drive to Baguio. May flood management projects din to prevent severe flooding sa lungsod. Pres. Duterte is very serious about this and we have a budget of P100 billion for all the infrastructures we’re now building. We have 12 new bridges to cross EDSA. He’s very hardworking, sincere, and by the time matapos ang term niya, ibang-iba na at maraming pagbabago sa Pilipinas kasi marami ring plans for new roads to ease traffic in Cebu, Bacolod and Mindanao to usher in the golden age of infrastructure in our country.”
