Sariaya Councilor Arlene Genove’s parents shed tears at her oath-taking
Sariaya Councilor Arlene Genove’s mother shed tears of joy during her oath-taking for her fresh term.
Her father laughed at her mom, but later on cried as well, although it was because of his tight barong, said Genove.
In a Facebook post, Genove said her parents are very proud of her.
They are just a simple family with a simple life, and had experienced being looked down on, she said.
They could not believe the support and love that the people have for her, she said.
This is why her victory is the victory of the people as well, she added.
She thanked her parents and siblings and all those who have supported her in this journey.
Their hard work and sacrifice have paid off.
In turn, she vowed to serve the people to the best of her ability.
She will continue to make them proud!
“Naiyak ang Nanay ko.
Yes sobrang proud po kasi sila sakin. Palibhasa kami naman ay galing sa pamilyang sadyang payak at simple. Nakaranas din po ng pangmamaliit ng iba. At hanggang ngayon po kahit pangalwang term na ay di pa rin kami makapaniwala sa pagmamahal at tiwala ng tao samin, na mararating po natin ang tagumpay na ito. Opo tagumpay natin ito kasama po kayo.
Si Tatay po ay tinatawanan si Inay pero sa huli po ay napaiyak din sya hahaha!! Yun pala kaya naiiyak ay puputok na ang kanyang barong!
Pati yung nagvivideo na si SK BJ napaiyak na haha!
Actually nalakad pa lang kami sa red carpet naiyak na ang Inay sa sobrang saya ng puso nya.
Salamat po sa aking inay at tatay at sa aking mga kapatid. Sa lahat ng suporta ninyo sa akin. Nagbunga ang ating pagod at sakripisyo.
Patuloy po kaming maglilingkod sa abot ng aming kakayanan at tutulong sa ating mga kababayan.
