Tañada to carry on elders' fight for farmers, fisherfolk
MetadataShow full item record
Former Quezon Representative Lorenzo “Erin” Tañada III has vowed to continue his family’s fight for the rights and welfare of the country’s farmers and fisherfolk if elected to the Senate. Tañada said he is banking on his family’s prominent surname in securing the support of the electorate as his grandfather Lorenzo Tañada and father Wigberto Tañada, who were both senators, have left their respective legacies that benefited the people. “I said, ’Tay (father), I would think the people who recognize the family name are of the age of 60 and above, if I wait for three more years our supporters might dwindle further,” the 56-year-old lawyer recalled telling his father last year when asked why he is running in May and not in 2022.
