Real Mayor Bing Aquino plans to turn to farming after her retirement from politics
It’s too early for Real Mayor Bing Aquino to think about leaving politics, but some people can’t help but wonder about her plans.
To satisfy their curiosity, Aquino shared her plans once she completes her third term as mayor.
In a Facebook post, Aquino said she would like to focus on farming.
Her family had started a farm even before her father passed away, and she would like to continue this, especially sustainable food production.
She recalled her father telling her to help their people by having them cultivate the farm.
The earnings from the endeavor would then be used to support a foundation to continue to help people.
The mayor also said she plans to construct a simple farmhouse where she will probably grow old.
Time will tell if Aquino will get another term as mayor, but she is certain she will pursue the farm life in the future.
This politiko will eventually be a farmer!
Madalas po tinatanong ako ng iba kung ano daw ang plano ko o gagawin ko pagkatapos ng 3rd term ko na pagka-mayor (loobin nawa ni Lord na makatapos). Dahil medyo advance sila mag-isip, share ko na din gusto ko primarily na gawin.
Gusto ko po mag-engage pa kami at magfocus pa sa farming. Although may nasimulan na ang pamilya, before dad passed, yun ang madalas naming pinaguusapan, particularly sustainable food production. Parati nyang sinasabi ‘anak tulungan mo ang mga taga atin sila din ang gawin mong taga tanim, taga harvest at katiwala.’ Yung portion daw ng kikitain ilalagay naman sa pangarap din ni Daddy na Foundation (ipangalan daw kay Kuya Dave, pero since pareho na sila namaalam, sa kanilang dalawa na) para daw makatulong pa din sa tao kahit nasa loob man kami o nasa labas ng pamahalaan. Sabi nya after nya mag-vice yun na ang plano nyang tutukan sa retirement nya. Kami na ang magtutuloy at isu-sustain ngayon ang meron. Bukod sa iba naming hanap buhay, yun ang gagawin ko at ng pamilya sa tulong ni Kuya Doyle. Bukod dito magpapatayo ako ng simpleng farmhouse. Doon na siguro ako tatanda.
Hindi ko sigurado kung makakabalik pa ako sa public service, because it is not for me to tell. I will cross the bridge when I get there. But this is something that I am sure to pursue at pinagaaralan ko na ngayong maigi.
