Senator-elect Imee Marcos on May 23 expressed her gratitude to Ilocanos for helping her secure a seat in the Senate.
The Ilocos Norte politiko said “the North indeed remembers.”
Marcos made the remark during her return to the provicial capitol a day after her proclamation as senator.
“It’s a real joy to be back home. Namiss ko kayong lahat at ang Ilocos Norte,” she said.
“Ako’y talagang natutuwa na makapiling kayong muli sa natitirang panahon ko bilang gobernador ninyo,” Marcos added.
She also said she will not forget the support she was given.
“Thank you so much for your devoted support. The North indeed remembers, and I will never forget,” Marcos said.
“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 added.
