Barangay San Jose SK Chairman Doc Monte Tolentino met with officers and members of Sitio Buhanginan Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association to find out their most immediate and pressing concerns.

“Nakaka-fall in love naman ang efforts ng mga TODA officers at members sa Sitio Buhanginan. Thank you po for joining us sa aming munting community kumustahan. You made us feel comfortable, safe, and loved,” said Doc Monte in his Facebook page after listening to the tricycle drivers and operators who voiced the most common problems and concerns of their association.‌

Antipolo Councilor Susan Garcia Say, Kagawad Emily Cruz, Kagawad Tessie Santos, Cecile Neng Samson, Empoy Andrade and Marlon Agraba joined Doc Monte.

The SK Chairman referenced deaf-mute-blind writer and author Helen Keller to express his appreciation for the welcome extended by the Buhanginan TODA even as he promised to address their most immediate concerns.

“Ang sabi ng Amerikanong manunulat na si Helen Keller, ‘the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart’ ”, Doc Monte.

“Ramdam namin ang inyong pagmamahal at sobrang na appreciate namin ang efforts n’yo. Nakaka-amaze kasi kahit araw ng Linggo ay pinili ninyo kaming samahaman. We hope na nag-enjoy po kayo sa ating kwentuhan. Sa tulong po ninyo ay siguradong darating ang pagbabagong inaasam natin para sa ating barangay.”

Tricycles are considered the “vehicle of the masses” because tricycles are the most basic mode of transportation of many Filipinos. They are cheap to buy, easy to maintain and can easily access even the worst roads in the country.

Tricycles have also become one of the basic sources of income of many Filipinos who have turned to driving tricycles as their primary source of income to feed their families. #DocMonteTolentino #MakabagoatTalino #TeamPagbabago #DocMonteTolentinoSanJose2023 #sanjose #barangaysanjose #brgysanjose #antipolocity #antipolo #community #gathering #events #inspirational #inspire #quote #toda #tricylelife
