Provincial Information & Tourism Office-La Union

Honorable Senator Francis Joseph "Chiz" G. Escudero, the Guest of Honor and Speaker during the 158th La Union Foundation Anniversary Celebration last March 2, was adopted as son of the Province of La Union by virtue of Resolution No. 009-2008. The plaque was presented to the Honorable Senator by Governor Manuel C. Ortega, Vice-Governor Eulogio Clarence Martin P. De Guzman III and the Members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

Senator Chiz Escudero has endeared himself to the people of La Union due to his unending support to the different projects and programs of the provincial government, particularly in crossing party lines to stand out for the inclusion of the former U.S. Wallace Air Station as Poro Point Special Economic and Freeport Zone (R.A. 9400) which spurred both economic and tourism investment opportunities from both local and foreign, thereby improved greatly the province’s economic progress and well-being of its people. He was likewise instrumental in supporting and fast-tracking the approval of the cityhood of the City of San Fernando, which now evidently a flourishing and progressive city working harmoniously with the Province of La Union.
