Cesar Montano visits AGR

Multi-awarded film director and international actor Cesar Montano visited former Vice Governor Anthony Del Rosario to show his support to AGR and to the rest of the members of the Liberal Party in Davao del Norte.
During his brief stopover at AGR’s house in Tagum City, Montano urged all Boholanos to support presidential aspirant Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III and running mate Senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas II.
Boholanos comprise 12 percent of the population of Davao del Norte. 
He also endorsed the candidacy of all the local candidates running under the LP banner in the coming 2010 elections.
He specially cheered the political campaign of AGR, who is reportedly gunning for the congressional seat in the 1st District of Davao del Norte, as well as the reelection bid of Gov. Rodolfo Del Rosario.
Montano’s unscheduled visit coincided with the celebration of the Feast of Christ the King of Tagum City last Sunday.
He arrived shortly after local officials from Sto. Tomas town, led by Councilor Daniel Batosalem, Jr., took their oath as new LP members. 
He was accompanied by Cesar Mancao, who is running for congressman in the 1st District of Compostela Valley province.
Montano, the gung ho host of the popular Filipino franchise of “The Singing Bee”, has earlier declared his bid to run for governor of Bohol in next year’s elections under LP.
He revealed his platform for Bohol will concentrate on education, agriculture, and in bolstering the province’s tourism business.
This will be the award-winning actor and filmmaker’s second attempt to enter politics, after a disappointing performance when he ran as senator under the administration’s Team Unity coalition in the 2007 national elections.
Anthony expressed his appreciation to the multi-talented actor for dropping by his house despite his very hectic schedule.
Aside from his acting, directing and TV hosting careers, Montano is also into painting. He is presently holding his first one-man exhibit at the Ayala Museum dubbed as Montano: The First Impression,” which runs from November 14 to 29, 2009. [Trojan/PGO]
