Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez said the values of the Philippine revolution helped the city grow into what it is today.
The Dagupan politiko made the remark during the commemoration of the 121st Philippine Independence Day at West Central Elementary School last June 12.
Fernandez said Filipino heroes showed great sacrifice, perseverance, and love of country for the Philippines to attain independence.
“We planned and were able to win over many challenges that faced the city,” she said.
“We have won many freedoms in just a short period of time by using the lessons of sacrifice, perseverance and love of country,” Fernandez added.
