“Lubos ang aking pasasalamat dahil isa ang Brgy. San Mateo sa napiling lugar dito sa Lalawigan ng Bulacan upang isagawa ang Barangay Development Program. Malaking tulong ito sa ating kapwa Bulakenyo sa Norzagaray, umpisa pa lamang ito ng pag-unlad. Karugtong nito, hinihiling ko lamang na ating alagaan at ingatan ang mga proyektong ipinagkaloob sa atin,” the governor said.
