Kakandidatong Kongresista si Richard Gomez sa ikaapat na distrito ng Leyte. Isa sa mga layunin niya ay makatulong na muling maitaguyod ang ABS-CBN.
Sinabi niya: “If the good Lord will bless me with the chance of winning in Congress, I’d like to work on bringing back ABS-CBN.”
Bakit? Dahil may debt of gratitude ang actor-turned-politician sa naturang network.
“I am not Richard Gomez now without ABS-CBN,” pag-amin niya.
“I was a long-time employee of ABS-CBN. I worked in ABS for 18 years,” dagdag pa niya.
“In Congress, kanya-kanyang utak ‘yan. As a representative, you represent yourself and your people. So you stand there not as an individual. You stand there for what is good for your people. Especially if it’s a national issue, you will always go for what is good for the whole nation,” pagpapaliwanag niya.
