“The people of barangay San Fabian are very lucky because the governor’s son would like to serve them as barangay chairman,” he told Manila Standard. “Francis Dy could bring progress to San Fabian and the whole of Echague.”

In typhoon Labuyo’s wake, Kiko delivered 850 bags of relief to San Fabian residents along and about 2,000 to Echague’s upland sections amid the destruction of food crops.

His village neighbors led by Barangay Councilor Virgilio Samut welcomed his role in community development.
