SEN. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go said his high trust rating will serve as his inspiration to further help Filipinos.

Based on the Tugon ng Masa (TNM) 2022 fourth quarter survey by OCTA Research, Go posted a 74 percent overall trust rating in October 2022, which is 24 percent higher compared to his December 2021 rating of 50 percent.

The senator, in a statement on Monday, said he welcomes his higher trust and satisfaction ratings. He thanked Filipinos for allowing him to serve them and reaffirmed his commitment to continue helping more vulnerable sectors nationwide.

“Bisyo ko ang magserbisyo. At naniniwala ako na ang serbisyo sa tao ay serbisyo sa Diyos (My vice is to serve. I believe that the service to people is the service to God),” he said.

Go said that just like former president Rodrigo Duterte, he is a simple man from the province who was “given the chance to serve the nation.”

“I will not waste that chance. I will serve you as much as I can. I am not a politician who will promise anything. I am not like that,” he said in Filipino.

Go’s office said that his October 2022 performance rating showed an improvement in all major areas and socioeconomic classes. Per region, 100 percent of adult Filipinos in the Cordillera Administrative Region are satisfied with Go’s performance. He also received full marks in terms of trust in Ilocos and Davao regions.

The poll was conducted from October 23 to 27 with 1,200 respondents 18 years and above from classes A, B, C, D and E.

Go, the chairman of the Senate Committees on Health and Demography and on Sports, co-authored various landmark laws, including the Malasakit Centers Act of 2019.

The Malasakit Centers law put under one roof various government agencies that provide medical assistance to poor patients, such as the Department of Health, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Philippine Health Insurance Corp., and Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.

There are 153 Malasakit Centers nationwide that have benefited more than 4 million Filipinos so far.
