Biruin mong #6 ranking ni Bossing sa eleksyon?!! I was really banking on him making it to #7 at best… HANEP.
It was my first time to join a national election campaign team. Completely out of my comfort zone. Gave up a high paying job to work full-time for Sonny Angara’s campaign, all because, I actually believe in the guy.
(Just some of the hard-working and dedicated staff of TEAM SONNY ANGARA)
Bossing having a light moment right after proclamation.
Here he is taking a photo of his official photographer Mark…
Probably Mark’s only solo photo during the whole campaign.
Madaming hirap na pinagdaanan, pero nun sinabihan kami ng COMELEC na proclamation ni Boss, wala lahat pagod namin. Larga lahat papunta sa PICC. Tatak ng Angara staff ang UNITY. So kahit konti lang talaga ang original na sinabi na pwede papasukin sa proclamation area, pinagpilitan namin mga sarili namin. Dahil to the very very end, WE BELIEVE in SONNY ANGARA, and we wanted to show our support naman.
Madaming tumulong at nagtrabaho para sa kampanyang ito…but for me, maybe because I’m just full of it, I’d say one of the most important factors of Bossing’s success were the women in his life.
Sonny’s Mom, and one of the most regal women you could ever hope to meet, Mrs. Gloria Manalang-Angara. She’s a veteran in the campaign trail, and was said to have won one particular election of Sen. Ed Angara (EJA could not go on sorties because of health complications and Mrs. Angara picked up the slack and went to campaign for him all over the country…)
(Left) Ms. Baboo Mondonedo and (Right) Ms. Anna Rosalyn M. Angara. Ms. Baboo is the Bossing’s mother-in-law who coordinated his campaign way up in the North, while Anna, Bossing’s eldest sister, represented him at several campaign event.
And of course, THE WOMAN behind the man, the strong and beautiful, Tootsy Echauz-Angara, here with daughter Ines. She was hands on with almost everything in the campaign, in-charge of over-all media operations, and of waking up Bossing for his early morning activities. She was always such a breath of fresh air, which helped a lot during those grueling moments.
It was such a privilege working with all these amazing people, and such an honor to have been part of Team Angara. All the late nights, blood, sweat and tears (and I mean this also literally) were worth it.
PARA SA BAYAN! GO TEAM ANGARA!
CONGRATULATIONS SENATOR SONNY ANGARA!
