Congressman Golez, the “House Techie”, files resolution to honor Jobs

I just read this article saying that Congressman Roilo Golez filed a resolution at the House of Representatives honoring and paying tribute to Apple Inc. Founder and Chairman, Steve Jobs. I knew Cong. Golez to be a techie because I’ve met him before in our Facebook Group against Cha-Cha initiative a few years back. He’s a real fan of Apple and I think he was one of the first lawmakers to ever own an iPad.

Here’s the full text of the resolution:

Republic of the Philippines
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
15th Congress
Second Regular Session

  1. Mr Golez seems to have sniffed too much katol this time around. He should focus on Paranaque to reduce squatters. There’s just too many of them here. They are allowing it to get votes on election. Pati mga bridge dito grabe crowded na ng squatters. At balak nyo pa mag raise ng tax!? susmaryosep!
