Lingayen Mayor Leopoldo Bataoil is grateful that his pet project “Daang Kalikasan” has turned out to be a huge success.
The scenic 14.6-kilometer road linking Mangatarem, Pangasinan with Sta. Cruz, Zambales has emerged as a prime tourist spot years after the politiko initiated the project in 2012.
At the time, Bataoil was still congressman of Pangasinan’s second district.
“When people appreciate all these meaningful projects, I can’t help but say, ‘Thank you, Lord,’ in my lifetime, I have contributed something good for humanity and my country,” said Bataoil in a Facebook post.
