Imee Marcos returns home: "The North indeed remembers"May 28, 2019
Senator-elect and outgoing Ilocos Norte Governor Imee R. Marcos returned home yesterday after her official proclamation as senator last May 22.
Senator-elect Marcos attended the flag raising ceremony in the morning at the Provincial Capitol Grounds yesterday. She expressed her excitement as she finally returns in Ilocos Norte, saying, "It's a real joy to be back home. Namiss ko kayong lahat at ang Ilocos Norte. Ako'y talagang natutuwa na makapiling kayong muli sa natitirang panahon ko bilang gobernador ninyo."
Senator-elect Marcos is also thankful to the Ilocano community for their firm support to her senatorial bid, as well as to the "Team Marcos" in the local elections.
"Thank you so much for your devoted support. The North indeed remembers, and I will never forget. Kahit papaano'y nanguna ako hanggang sa Cagayan. It's been a difficult campaign not only for me but also for those who won with me here in the province. Talagang the Solid North is alive and well," she remarked.
Senator-elect Marcos has left Ilocos Norte to campaign period for the national elections. She visited cities and provinces all over the country.
"Kung saan-saan ako napadpad. Mula sa Visayas at kasuluk-sulokan ng Mindanao. There are beautiful islands, great volcanoes, remarkable sights and sounds and very great food but at the end end of the day, it's a real pride to be Ilocano and to come from Ilocos Norte. The best pa rin ang ating lugar,"
Reassuring her kailians that she will still help, senator-elect Marcos reiterated that "Hindi po ako mawawala sa Ilocos Norte. Nandito lang ako at asahan ninyo ako, sampu ng aking pamilya, kasama ang lahat ng aming political family; ang ating mga opisyales ngayon."
