Mountain Province has adopted Senator JV Ejercito during 14th Lang-ay Festival and 51st founding anniversary of the province.
Ejercito, who was guest speaker, was given the name “Bulanglang” which means the symbol of hope and prosperity.
It is usually interpreted as the coming of the rain after a long drought.
Mountain Province Governor Bonifacio Lacwasan said they proud to call Ejercito one of their own.
“We are honored to welcome him here as a son of the province. However, we also expect him to uphold his given name and bring hope, happiness, and prosperity to the people of Mountain Province,” Lacwasan said.
