Can’t put a good man down! Quezon Rep. Helen Tan defends hubby from accusations
Quezon Rep. Helen Tan is not taking the accusations against her husband Ronnel Tan sitting down.
Ronnel is a Regional Director of the Department of Public Works and Highways and is facing a complaint at the Office of the Ombudsman about his allegedly lavish birthday party and meddling in politics.
In a Facebook post, the Quezon representative said she was saddened by the move which smacked of politics and said the people who know her husband know that he has a good heart and wants to help the people.
She said her husband is the son of a fisherman and a market vendor, and was able to pursue his studies as a scholar.
He graduated with honors and passed the engineering licensure exam even if he only did a self study as he could not afford to enroll in review centers.
In 1995, he was named a model employee of the year in the DPWH, and was twice recognized as the best district engineer in the country, she said.
He is also currently the top performing regional director, she added.
Her husband devoted many years to working in the government and rose through the ranks because of his intelligence, dedication, and hard work, she further said.
He also likes to help people, which was the reason she decided to venture into politics.
Given these, she asked the people to judge for themselves whether the allegations against her hubby are true.
What’s your verdict?
“Mahalagang impormasyon para sa mga kababayn ko sa Distrito at sa buong Quezon:
Si Konsehal Arkie Yulde ng Lopez ay nagsampa ng kaso kay RD Ronnel Tan sa Ombudsman, ang Abogado certain Atty. Villamor ay nagpa press briefing pa kanina. Lavish Bday party daw ni Engr at ang pakikialam nya sa Pulitika.
Nakakalungkot na may mga ganitong kalseng pagkilos laban kay RD Ronnel na ang alam naman nating lahat ay pulitika lamang ang pinag uugatan. Alam din natin kung sino ang nasa likod nito. At dahil si Engr. ay manggagawa ng Gobyerno, ay sya ang pinupuntirya. At alam ng lahat na sya ang may busilak na puso sa pagtulong sa kapwa at pundasyon ng Serbisyong Tunay At Natural kaya sya ang pilit na gugupuin ng kalaban.
Sino ba Si Engr. Ronnel Tan
Sya ay anak ng mangingisda at magtitinda ng isda sa palengke ng Gumaca. Nakapag aral sya bilang State Scholar sa Enverga University at nagtapos na Magna Cumlaude. Nakapasa sa Eng’g Licensure Exam kahit self review lamang sya dahil wala sya pambayad sa review school. Nakapasok na Engr. Sa DPWH at nagawaran ni President Ramos and DPWH Sec. Vigilar na Model Employee of the Year noong 1995. 2 beses nagawaran na Best Dist. Engr. ng ating Bansa. At sa kasalukuyan at Top Performing Regional Dir.
sa ating Bansa.
Nagsimula sa pinakamababang empleyado ng gobyerno, at tumaas ng dahil sa angking Talino, dedikasyon, at sipag sa trabaho.
Kilala ng maraming tao sa pagiging matulungin, at yun din ang dahilan bakit ako napasok sa pulitika. Maraming tao ang nagmamahal sa aming pamilya.
Ngayon kayo po ang humusga, kung sino ang nasa limod nito at ano ang motibo ng pagkilos na ito.
Kay Konsehal Yulde at sa 2 Mayors at sa pangunahing may akda nito, I will pray for all of you. We will take it as a challenge that we can overcome. I LIFT IT UP TO OUR GOD!
NO ONE CAN PUT A GOOD MAN DOWN,” Tan posted.
