Ilo-ilo Representatives Julienne “Jamjam” Baronda, Janette Garin, and Sharon Garin were slammed by their fellow Ilonggos for voting against the ABS-CBN franchise renewal.
These three lady lawmakers are part of the 70 members of the Congress’ Committee on legislative franchises who voted ‘Yes’ to ABS-CBN franchise denial.
The denial of the broadcast giant’s appeal for a franchise renewal killed their chance to be back on the air after being shut down since May 5.
As the House released its final decisions on July 10, Ilonggo netizens expressed their disappointment with the Congress’ decision.
Specifically, they were upset with the three lady representatives: Baronda of Iloilo city; Janette of Iloilo Province 1st district; and Sharon of AAMBIS-OWA Party-list.

The Ilonggos can extract revenge on the Garins by not voting for them in 2022.

The views and opinions expressed by Mr. Roque do not state or reflect those of the "Filipino people".
Furthermore, the views, opinions and the VOTE made by Iloilo's representative do not reflect those of the Ilonggos.

The audacity of Janette Garin to vote Yes for ABS-CBN's franchise denial. Hello ghorl where are your words? Kala ko ba magreresign ka na? You just put all of us Ilonggos in pure shame, my dear Dengvaxia Queen.

ABS-CBN, the biggest media conglomerate of the country, is owned by the Lopez family who originated from Iloilo City. Eugenio Lopez Jr., the father or the Gabby Lopez, the current Chairman Emeritus of ABS-CBN Corporation, was born in the said city.
ABS-CBN is the number 1 network in Iloilo, which justifies the disappointment of the Ilonggos with their representatives.
