Protect the Money maker: Sen. Cynthia will attend Senate sessions via teleconferencing, so that Manny won't catch COVID-19

Senator Cynthia Villar has expressed her intentions to join her colleagues the Senate sessions via teleconferencing, rather than being physically attending in the senate.

“But I will participate in Senate proceedings through teleconferencing,” she said in a statement on Sunday. “Manny and I are staying at home to be safe. Through the help of our faithful staff, who are living with us temporarily, I have been doing my work continuously.”

The Senate will resume session this May 4, the senators are set to adopt a Senate resolution that allows plenary sessions and committee hearing through teleconferencing as the National Capital Region is still under the enhanced community quarantine.

“Manny is managing our business online. I can take the risk, but Manny cannot. He is managing a very big organization with thousands of employees and workers,” Villar went on, referring her husband who was a former Senate president.

“The companies need him because of a predicted economic recession. We have experienced recessions in 1983 and 1997. Like before, Manny has to manage the business to overcome the present challenges,” she added.

Senator Cynthia, also said that government should allow daily wage earners to return to work.

“There are people like us who can opt to work from home in the new normal as we know it. But as I have recommended earlier, the daily wage earners, most of whom are financially challenged, and comprise 59% of our population should be allowed to go back to work in order not to go hungry,” she said.

“No amount of relief and government support will be enough to feed them,” she added.

Senator Cynthia also said the government should establish a set of protocols for workers so that they could immediately go to work.

“I hope our policymakers will realize that they should establish a protocol that workers will follow so they can go back to work (as soon as possible),” she said.

“We as legislators will also find ways and means to help our countrymen as we all adapt to the new normal,” she added.
