Cong. Tet Garcia legislative building to rise in Mariveles


MARIVELES, BATAAN – A legislative building named after the late Congressman Tet Garcia will soon rise in this town, according to Mayor Ace Jello Concepcion, in a huddle with the media people right after the groundbreaking ceremony of the “one-stop-shop” building here.
Mayor Concepcion said that it’s already in the pipeline, that after the one-stop-shop building, they will commence the construction of a building which will house the SB session hall and the offices of the Sangguniang Bayan members, which will be named after the late Congressman Tet Garcia for his sterling accomplishments such as his fight to keep the Petrochemical Industry in Bataan, which became a landmark case when the Supreme Court ruled with finality in favor of the late Cong. Tet’s fight for justice for the Bataenos; closing the BIR tax loopholes, wherein Congressman Tet devised a simple solution that save P100B for the government; and the Iskolar ng Bataan program which started in 2004 to name a few.
Mayor Concepcion added that, it was not only during the term of his father, former Mayor Jesse Concepcion that Cong. Tet Garcia has put his focus in Mariveles with his road projects, schools, prominent investors like the Petrochemical community, GN Power Plant and the bustling Ecozone now the Freeport Area of Bataan, which has now developed further with his son, Abet Garcia, as provincial governor.
The good Mayor said that they want the legacy of Cong. Tet Garcia to live on and that the many good things he has done for Mariveles be known by the next generations to come, having served Bataan as Congressman of the 2nd district  for 17 years and as Governor for 12 years. The “Congressman Tet Garcia legislative building” will be the first in the province of Bataan to house a museum for Cong. Tet Garcia’s memorabilias and an elevator as one of its unique features to cater to our PWD’s, senior citizens and pregnant women.
