Chiz Escudero for Senator

Let us vote for CHIZ.

I predict he is going to top the Senate elections this coming May. Fact is, I already posted his poster on my school supplies shop, on my farm, and on my house. He is one of the great guys running for the Senate. Further, he is going to be a top contender for President soon.

Now, to know more about our CHIZ, below are some information about him, taken from his website: .

Francis Joseph Guevarra Escudero or Chiz was raised by parents who were both educators. His father, Salvador H. Escudero III, served as Department of Agriculture secretary during the Marcos and Ramos administrations.

He earned his bachelor's degree in political science and in law at the University of the Philippines. He later went to Georgetown University Law Center in Washington for his master’s degree in international and comparative law.

He served his first term in the 11th Congress in 1998 and Assistant Majority Floor Leader and Senior Deputy Majority Leader in the 12th Congress in 2001 and in the present 13th Congress as House Minority Floor Leader.

Cool and confident, quick with his words, and unwavering in his commitments and conviction, Chiz at 37, is in his prime. If his political mentors rewarded him with a smile and a pat on the back for what he accomplished as a boy of 28, they now regard him with respect and value his professional advice.
