The House of Representatives Secretariat held on Monday its first flagraising ceremony for 2020 with Rep. Lorenz Defensor (3rd District, Iloilo) as the guest of honor. In his speech, Defensor emphasized that the responsibility of Representatives is to work towards the benefit of their constituents, and it is the Secretariat’s role as the guiding force to allow them to fulfill their mandate and become full fledged statesmen. A neophyte lawmaker, who is serving his first term in the House, Defensor further shared that he hopes to follow the footsteps of his father Arthur Defensor Sr., a former Member of the House.
