The mayor, in an official statement furnished to the media, said he received a call from Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go, the chairman of the Committee on Health in the Senate. I thanked him for the approval of the Bill on the creation of the Bacolod City General Hospital.

“I pointed out to Sen. Bong that this is good news for Bacolod and that Grupo Progreso had this among its campaign promises in 2019.  And fittingly so, Sen. Bong along with President Rody Duterte and Mayor Sara Duterte were among those who endorsed our candidacies,” Leonardia said.
