Gingoog’s political dynasty is crumbling Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

GINGOOG City -- Political boundaries here are realigned as cracks are noted in the once formidable bailiwick of the Guingonas when Vice Mayor Eric Canosa and Provincial Board Member Jabi Bernaldez joined forces and bolted away to run against their former political lords in this city, Tuesday.

A HAPPY MISOR SCOUTS – VICE GOVERNOR JOEY G. PELAEZ receives a very warm welcome from hundreds of scouts during their encampment at Don Restituto Baol Elementary School in Gingoog City. This encampment is part of the celebration of the Scouting Month this October. Vice Governor Pelaez is a Member of the National Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) and at the same time Council Chair of the BSP-Misamis Oriental Council. During his speech, he announced the holding of the 3rd A Happy MisOr Jamboree in December this year. provided photo

Vice Mayor Canosa and Board Member Bernaldez filed their certificates of candidacies (COC) as city mayor and vice mayor respectively under the Padayon Pilipino banner led by Gov. Bambi Emano as reelectionist. The duo won their present seats as allies of the Guingonas against Gov. Emano in the previous election. It was not known what really caused the break-up. Canosa and Bernaldez hold a considerable political influence in this city that may cause a realignment of forces and ultimately led the dreaded Guingona bailiwick to crumble.

Also in the Canosa-Bernaldez ticket for the city council are Marion Kho, Rey Mortiz, Ernesto Chaves, Melleanette Mercado, Avelino Bernaldez, Margarita Condeza Heini, Heddy de Lara, Gerime Cabeltes and Agnes Lee. At least three of the council bets belong to known political clans in the city with potentials to haul in votes for the Padayon Pilipino ticket. Gov. Bambi Emano confirmed that COC papers of the Canosa-Bernaldez ticket carried nominations from Padayon Pilipino. The Governor, along with party

leaders joined the city bets during the filing of COC’s the other day. “Young, dynamic and good public servants. Any party would be happy to have them,” Gov. Emano said describing the candidates. He also downplayed some scenarios where members of the same clans are running on opposite political parties such as the one where one brother is his party’s congressional bet while another one is under the LP banner in Cagayan de Oro City. “This is democracy at work. Being blood brothers is not a guarantee that both share the same political convictions, “ Emano said. The Governor makes it a point that he is always around whenever candidates of his party file their COC’s. “My presence is a sincere expression of my full trust and confidence on these people,” Emano said.

LP’s heading for a big, fat crash The Liberal Party (LP), the administration’s political party, in Cagayan De Oro City and the province of Misamis Oriental is facing an enigma following the departure of its allies and supporters toward the opposition political party. There are many instances indicating that the LP in Misamis Oriental and Cagayan De Oro is heading for a big, fat crash! For example, last Tuesday, Cagayan De Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno, through a representative, filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) alone. Moreno is the chair of the LP here. On the same day, a representative of Rep. Rolando Uy, another LP candidate, of the city’s first district, filed the COC with the City Commissions on Elections (COMELEC). Usually, the head of the local political party (Moreno is the LP chair in the city), would lead his complete ticket – from Mayor to City Councilors and the Congressional districts – during the filing of the COCs. In fact, the party head would always be around to personally boost the fight-

ing spirit of the party mates. Aside from enhancing the party mates’ will to fight, the presence of the party head would also assure the local citizenry of the political party’s determined effort to win an electoral contest under a united ticket. The filing of the COC is also an appropriate time to officially introduce the names of the complete political lineup under a political party. For the local political watchers, Moreno’s filing of his COC alone last Tuesday at the COMELEC imparted more questions than certain answers. The gossipy corners of the local politics could not but be apprehensive of Moreno’s action. Has the LP lineup in Cagayan De Oro City broken up? Talks are now spreading like wildfire that those who would-be-city council candidates are now withdrawing from Moreno’s LP lineup. Under an atmosphere of distrust, mistrust, and abandoned, leaving the LP lineup is a common proposition. Anyway, the filing of the COC would last until Friday. There would be more shocking turn of events before the deadline of


Cris Diaz

the filing of the COC comes. The worse thing is when the LP’s national hierarchy discards Moreno as its standard bearer in Cagayan De Oro City. Without a complete political ticket, the LP might consider dropping Moreno like a hot potato. Anyway, the scenario is not alien in Misamis Oreintal, particularly in the component city of Gingoog. It appears that the Guingonas, who ruled over Gingoog – from the former appointed Philippine Vice President Teofisto Guingona, Jr. to his incumbent daughter Mayor Marie Guingona – has finally loosened their grip of Gingoog City, about 200 kilometers east of Cagayan

De Oro City. Last Tuesday, City Mayor Marie Guingona’s Vice Mayor Erick Canosa bolted from LP. Canosa joined the opposition Padayon Pilipino (Move on Filipinos) as the opposition’s standard bearer for the mayoral post in 2016. What hurts is that Canosa was not alone, in the province of Misamis Oriental, Provincial Board Member Abi Barnaldez, abandoned the LP, and joined the Padayon Pilipino to run as Vice Mayor and become Canosa’s running mate come 2016. Many other influential political leaders in Gingoog City – incumbent and not -- have abandoned the LP to join the opposition Padayon. Among them are incumbent city councilor Marlon Kho, Avelino Bernaldez, Heidi de Lara and former City Mayor Mike Paderanga who ran for the provincial board under the Padayon slate. Another LP leader in Misamis Oriental, Provincial Board Member Benedict Lagbas would file his COC under the Padayon political ticket. It should be noted that Benedict Lagbas is one of the original LP leaders in See diaz, page A11

A deeper view

Jesse E.L. Bacon II

This behavior of the Filipino voters explains why they can easily shift loyalties or support from one politician to another. At this point, the vocal voters have already identified themselves with their chosen candidates. They are now divided according to their preferred personality and sadly Duterte is not one of them. Those who have remained loyal to him have greatly dwindled since the others declared their presidential run while he is still making up his mind. Admittedly, there are those among his ranks who have shifted allegiance to any of the declared can-

didates at this point. Only those who believe a Duterte candidacy will benefit them in whatever way are sticking it up with him even if he still has to decide whether to run or not. Duterte’s indecisiveness will never benefit him because Filipino voters can easily shift allegiance if they see their original chosen candidate is unable to make a decision as crucial as being a candidate for whatever post, most specifically the presidency. Voters don’t look with favor those who seem not interested in giving them favors as well. But one may argue that the silent majority is still to make up their mind who to finally support. True but the bandwagon has already been clearly established when that segment of the Filipino voting populace makes their decision who to vote for. Intentions to run for a public office should be done with proper timing. It should be calculated not to be too early thus making the self-declared candidate the object of all mudslinging and other forms

of charges being hurled at the candidate even before the campaign period could start. But it should not be too late also to the point that everyone is already committed at supporting a particular candidate while the late comer is still at the stage of organizing his support base. To the latter Duterte belongs. No matter what his handlers say, making an announcement any day until Friday’s deadline will no longer serve his political objective especially that he’ll be doing this by retracting all his previous announcements that he is not running for president. I personally know of some of his supporters who have already given up and are now committed to supporting other presidential candidates. Monday’s reiteration that he is not running should be respected and should be left as it is. Retracting from his announcement will make him a political lame duck even before he could make his presidential run hit the ground. See bacon, page A11

1,000 Mindanawons join ‘Manilakbayan’ DAVAO City--Around 1,000 lumads and human rights defenders from all over Mindanao will converge in Surigao City on October 18 to join the nationwide campaign dubbed “Manilakbayan ng Mindanao” to call on the administration of President Benigno Aquino III to stop human rights abuses and the killings of indigenous peoples allegedly by the military. Delegates from South Cotabato, North Cotabato, Maguindanao, Davao City, Davao del Norte and Bukidnon will travel to Manila for the “Salubungan sa UP Diliman,” a torch parade to greet the coming of the contingent. From October 26 to 31, the contingent will hold “Kampuhan sa UP Diliman.” The march will start at the Quezon City Circle to the University Avenue. The Manilakbayan event

started October 13 and will end November 1 with a march towards Plaza Miranda to stage a protest rally. Speaking in Monday’s Kapehan sa Dabaw at SM City Davao, Bay Ali Indayla, secretary-general of Kawagib Moro Human Rights, lamented how slow justice is given to the victims of human rights abuses, citing a report from the Department of National Defense (DND) that out of the 97 cases of human rights abuses, one soldier has so far been convicted since 2001. She added that military operations such as the counter-insurgency measures implemented in the lumad communities have disturbed their way of life by allegedly arming them and making them join the paramilitary groups. Indayla said the military presence has displaced several lumads in their communities and

transferred to the Haran Evacuation Center, a facility run by the United Church of Christ of the Philippines (UCCP), to seek refuge for five months now. Around 700 lumads from Talaingod, Kapalong in Davao del Norte, and San Fernando in Bukidnon arrived in the city since May this year. But Jhong Manzon, secretary-general of Pasaka Confederation of Lumad Organization in Southern Mindanao, said only around 500 have decided to stay while others have returned to their communities despite the “threats”. “Unless the military pull out its troops, they will not return to their communities,” he said. In an emailed statement to MindaNews, Ellen Manlibaas, chairperson of Kahugpongan sa mga Maguuma sa Kitaotao (KMK, United Peasants in Kitaotao), said 165 more lumads displaced by alleged militarization from the Barangay White Culaman, Kitaotao in Bukidnon arrived Monday at Haran. “The sorry plight of the

people in White Culaman started last August 25 when elements from the 8th and 23rd Infantry Battalions trooped to their communities and illegally arrested 13 farmers, mostly leaders of KMK and Nagkahiusang Mag-uuma sa Barangay White Culaman (NAMABAW),” she said. Some evacuees had fled to a parish run by Italian priest Fr. Peter Geremia in Arakan, North Cotabato, colleague of slain missionary Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio, the statement read. “We will not return, until we are assured that the military have left our communities, to allow us to live and farm in peace, and the perpetrators of human rights violations from the 8IB and the 23IB are punished for their crimes,” Manlibaas said. Manzon added, “By allowing the military to oppress innocent civilians, it is becoming clearer that the government does not answer to the need of its constituents, and that the only answer to this problem is for the people to unite in resistance and forging of

their own future.” In an interview with MindaNews last September 29, Datu Lumansad Sibogan, a member of the board of trustees of the Ata-Manobo Tribal Council of Elders Association Talaingod, urged outsiders to let the lumads resolve internal conflicts. The datu wishes that conflict resolution be done through their own ways and tradition based on their customary laws that have governed the indigenous people since time immemorial and not through the mediation of any group. Some 200 lumads from Talaingod fled their homes last May, claiming they wanted to escape militarization that has report-

edly brought human rights abuses by the military and the paramilitary group “Alamara.” Capt. Alberto Caber, chief of the Public Information Office (PIO) and spokesperson of the Eastern Mindanao Command (EastMinCom), said that the military cannot just pull out its troops in the communities as they are detailed there to protect the villagers, government projects, and alleged extortion by the New People’s Army (NPA). He denied involvement of the military in the operations of mining companies and the creation of so-called paramilitary group “Alamara.” (Antonio L. Colina IV / MindaNews)

Guardians endorse Rufus’ candidacy By MARK FRANCISCO Staffmember

MORE than 2,000 members of the Philippine Guardians Brotherhood, Inc. have committed to support the mayoral candidacy of outgoing second district Rep. Rufus Rodriguez in 2016. Rodriguez met last Sunday with leaders of all 27 chapters of the Guardians in Cagayan de Oro who all delivered to the congress-

man the bloc commitment of their respective members. The leaders of the 27 chapters, led by City Executive Council president Romelito Nob, were impressed by the seven-point agenda of Rodriguez. The meeting was also graced by Guardians regional president Nilo Abugaa and regional spokesperson Mike Salvador. During the meeting,

Rodriguez appealed to the Guardians to help solve the worsening traffic problem in the city. He said that if he wins as mayor, he would deputize the Guardians as traffic enforcers so each street in downtown Cagayan de Oro would be covered. Rodriguez also asked the Guardians to help in preventing crime in their respective barangays. He said Rep. Rufus Rodriguez locks hands with Guardians who endorse last Sunday his imSee endorse, page A11

GSIS bares new benefit package, grants 100K to centenarian pensioners

BATANGAS City--Two centenarian pensioners received Php100,000 each from GSIS President and General Manager (PGM) Robert G. Vergara during the stakeholders’ dialogue on Friday at the Batangas City Convention Center. PGM Vergara handed checks to pensioners Cornelia Cabual and Socorro Podador, 101 and 100 years old, respectively, as part of the package of new milestone benefits for old-age and disability pensioners. Ninety-three-year-old Salvador Hornilla also received Php20,000 from the pension fund chief. “We are introducing the milestone benefits for oldage and disability pensioners who are 90 years old and above because they are the most vulnerable members of GSIS,” he said. Some 6,000 pensioners who are 90 to 94 years old as of 1 September 2015 will be granted Php20,000, while over 1,100 pensioners who are 95 to 99 years old will

receive Php50,000. A total of 181 pensioners who are 100 years old and above will get Php100,000. Fur ther, more than 272,000 old-age and disability pensioners as of 31 December 2014 have started receiving a one-time benefit equivalent to one-month pension or Php10,000, whichever is lower. PGM Vergara added that starting 2 September 2015 and thereafter, pension-

ers who will turn 90, 95, and 100 years old will be paid a milestone benefit of Php20,000, Php30,000, and Php50,000, respectively, on their birthday. He said that the GSIS’s funeral benefit for members and pensioners was also increased to Php30,000 from Php20,000. “The funeral benefit was last raised to Php20,000 from Php18,000 in 2001, or 14 years ago. The increase

is long overdue,” he said. GSIS is in a position to grant these benefits due to its record financial performance in 2014. Total assets reached Php908 billion, while income spiked to Php140 billion and revenues

to Php231 billion. The pension fund chief also discussed the other reforms implemented in the last five years to provide responsive service for its 1.9 million stakeholders. These include the non-suspension

of loan privileges of active members in suspended agencies, the reduction in the inaccurate volume of accounts from Php30 billion in 2010 to Php2.4 billion in 2014, the increased See bares, page A11

DRR bid set to get new boost

By Catherine J. Teves of PNA

THE government plans to expand its network of weather monitoring equipment nationwide to help better warn people about expected weather conditions. Aside from almost doubling the quantity of sensors nationwide, climate change and disaster risk reduction (DRR) assistant secretary Raymund Liboro said government targets to increase the number of its doppler radars to 17 units next year from 12 units at present. “Technology is the linchpin of DRR efforts,” he said Tuesday (Oct. 13) in Metro Manila at the 2015 Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction. He noted such focus on

technology reflects government’s continuing use of science for DRR nationwide. Science-based, scenariodriven DRR is essential in saving people, he continued. Disaster is a “serious disruption of the functioning of a community or a society involving widespread human, material, economic or environmental losses and impacts, which exceeds the ability of the affected community or society to cope using its own resources,” said UNISDR. DRR is “the concept and practice of reducing disaster risks through systematic efforts to analyze and manage the causal factors of disasters, including through reduced exposure to hazards, lessened vulnerability of people and property, wise management of land

and the environment, and improved preparedness for adverse events,” UNISDR also said. Anchored on the theme ‘Food and Nutrition Security and DRR: Global Agenda for Local Action,’ the conference was among activities marking this year’s International Day for Disaster Reduction. Such day highlights how people and communities are reducing respective exposure to disasters and raising awareness about DRR’s importance. Data presented during the conference highlighted DRR’s role in helping ensure food and nutrition security. Citing latest available estimates, the World Food Programme (WFP) noted the risk of hunger and child malnutrition due to climate See bid, page A11

Why the globe should go green FOR many people the idea of going green seems a little farfetched – after all, surely one person can’t make a difference, can they? In the face of increasing global warming issues and a climate that is being seriously impacted by human behaviour, it is important that we all do what we can to improve the

state of the environment. From droughts in California to continuingly mild winters in the UK, the effect of global warming is causing drastic and worrying weather conditions and unless we all make a change, the situation will not improve. Unfortunately, however,

many people have resided to the fact that switching from coal, gas and oil to greener solutions requires far too much effort and too much money. With fossil fuel readily available to the masses at a relatively cheap price why would anyone want to switch? See green, page A11

The Senior Kids Camp is the formal entry camp for kids exclusively ages 9 to 12 years old to be the members of the CFC Kids for Christ ministry. It is open to all kids whether their parents are CFC or non-CFC members. The two-day live-in camp brought the kids to an experience of having fun and at the same time hear and see the word of God being proclaimed by the CFC Youth for Christ (YFC) and CFC Singles for Christ (SFC) servants in ways that kids would appreciate. The kids experienced an overview of the different advocacies of Kids for Christ such as Batang Malakas, Batang Business, Batang Media, and Batang Kalikasan. Kids learned how to give importance to their body through Batang Malakas. Batang Business brings up

on how to be a good steward of the beautiful creations so as it goes with Batang Kalikasan on appreciating God’s beautiful creations. Batang Media on how to explore, share and develop their God given talents. They also made friends as they play games, share experiences and entertain one another in a wholesome Christian environment. They discovered and were encouraged to develop their gifts and potential for leadership as they were exposed to their peers and to the youth who were actively serving them as speakers, facilitators, game coordinators etc. The letter giving and dialogue, after the last talk of the second day, between the parent and child was a teary yet wonderful experience, expressing love and forgiveness. The camp was concluded with a lunch fellowship with the parents. Spirit filled and contented hearts were shown through the happy and smiling faces of the parents and kids.

The Advantages of K to 12

By Dr. Minangoao P. Imam Associate Professor V / Faculty MSU-LNCAT Marawi City

K to 12 is a system of education implemented in the Philippines. It is a tool that aims to enhance capabilities of Filipino students in order to be a good contributor to nation-building. The K to 12 program covers Kindergarten and 12 years of basic education. This 12-year basic education composes of six years for elementary education, four years of Junior High School, and two years of Senior High School. The approval of such educational system means that Philippine Government has seen its potential in producing life-long learners and outstanding human resources. K to 12 provides sufficient instructional time. Having longer years compared to the old system, K to 12 will result to mastery of concepts, that prepare students for their future plans; might it be college education, middle-level skills development, employment or entrepreneurship.

This program also produces graduates who are more prepared to enter the labor force. First, K to 12 consist of Technological and Vocational Education that equips students with skills that are needed in most workplace. In other words, once a K to 12 student graduates, he can be employed even without college degree. In addition to that, most graduates in older system have not reach the legal age, hindering them to be employed. In K to 12, however, most students will graduate at the age of 18. In other words, it is very much possible they will get employed right away. The K to 12 program is also following the international education standard. Having this is already an edge for Filipino students who wish to work abroad in the future. Thus, Filipinos will not be behind anymore in the global arena. That is K to 12 Basic Education, a program that is a great help and certainly beneficial to Filipino students and to their future.

Teaching, is it a choice?

By Emma M. Suelto Salawagan National High School

Teaching is a noblest profession. This is what I always heard when I was young. Whenever I was asked about my ambition I used to answer “to be a teacher” because it’s an honor being one. It has been my pen ambition but I never knew how hard life would become being a teacher. My ambition led me to enroll BSE- English to make my dream come true. As an education student I really need to overcome a lot of pressures and challenges coming my way. All my instructors required me to do teaching demonstrations, never ending lesson planning, researching and other head breaking tasks. I was really exposed to reality by which a teacher will undergo. At first, I was tempted to drop or shift the course because I really don’t like to teach all my life. For me, if I will continue studying this course it could be a “suicide” or I am just punishing myself but my family refused to support me with my plan.

So, I had no choice. I had to continue my studies and forced myself to embrace teaching until I become a licensed teacher. I got employed and then I realized how lucky I am being “a teacher”. How nice it would be in the field of teaching where I can touch lives and I can also be touched with my students’ lives. Each day that passes brings a new happiness and satisfaction thinking that my students would become what God wants them to become. I am thankful to God for the pressures and challenges I once hurdled in my studies because I know they are just there to make myself an effective teacher. I am now very proud being part of my students’great success because I am their teacher and above all it’s because God allowed me to become a teacher, molder, facilitator and his co-builder of ones future. With God’s will, I was able to teach… and touch lives, and if God permits this will be my profession for the rest of my life.

families from their homes are heinous crimes that have no place in civil society and whose perpetrators must be made answerable to the law,” the Chamber said in a statement released Tuesday in a press conference. The group called on the government “to take immediate action to capture those responsible and ensure the safety and security of the affected indigenous communities to a degree that would allow them to return to their homes.” The Chamber said they recognize the rights of indigenous peoples (IPs) to live peaceably in their ancestral lands and to decide whether or not mining projects will be allowed to operate within their domain. “We call to task some leaders of the Roman Catholic Church and anti-mining groups that were quick to link the entire minerals development industry to these acts of violence and intimidation. They should be more careful in their pronouncements, specifically in their blanket condemnation of the mining industry. We ask them to be more circumspect and responsible in their statements and not take advantage of unfortunate incidents as another opportunity to denigrate the whole mining industry. Irresponsible statements blaming large mining companies for the violence only mislead the public,” it said. The group said that legitimate mining companies have had long and productive relationships with the indigenous communities hosting their mining operations. In 2012, the 20 mining companies operating in ancestral domains reported paying their host IP communities over Php 340 million in royalties. IP communities also benefit from projects funded by mining companies’ Social Development Management Program (SDMP) which totaled over Php 370 million in 2012. These funds resulted in increased literacy, health care, and access to economic opportunities such as livelihood programs. “We reiterate our commitment to uphold and promote the inalienable rights of all stakeholders from both tribal and nontribal communities. We are guided by our core values founded on the fundamental principle of respect for, and protection of, human dignity. We condemn the violence perpetrated against the lumads and offer our sincerest sympathies to the victims’ loved ones,” the group said. “We call on the government to expedite the investigation into these killings and bring those responsible to justice. We will cooperate fully with police authorities and provide whatever assistance may be necessary to

conclude the investigation,” they added. The lumads e arlier claimed that the communist New Peoples Army (NPA) are the ones manipulating indigenous peoples and occupying communities. “There are no armed government forces in the community. The NPA rebels are the ones occupying our area to control indigenous peoples and seize ancestral lands,” said Datu Malapandaw Nestor Apas of the Langilan Manobo tribe in Davao del Norte, in a press conference held in Camp Aguinaldo.

The moment he retracts his Monday announcement he will just make himself subject to ridicule of being not respectable, of being a man who could not be sure about his plans and intentions, of being an indecisive leader. At the end of the day, he will not be taken seriously by the people who later on he will have to convince he is serious about his intention of serving the country as its president. His supporters should accept that after Monday’s announcement Duterte’s presidential bid fizzled out. It is dead and resurrecting it back to life is impossible because no one among them has been given the power and authority to resurrect the dead.

Believe it or not, however, with a growing number of renewable energies across the world and a mix of competitive sites, it is no longer mission impossible. With so many different companies,

there is now no end to the green energy available! Wondering what renewable options you can switch to in order to improve your carbon footprint and lessen the impact of global warming? Consider the following… Wind Wind energy is, today, one of the most prominent sources of green energy. Growing rapidly in popularity there are now a number of wind farms around the world as this becomes a highly viable source of powering homes. Solar Solar energy has been a popular choice for many and solar panels have been a prevalent way of generating electricity for a number of years. From solar plants to homes with their own panels, in countries with warmer climates in particular this has been a prominent source of energy. Hydro Generated through the movement of water through turbines, hydro energy is a fantastic source of renewable energy. Although not as popular as wind and solar energy, hydro is slowly growing as it becomes responsible for producing 16% of the world’s energy. With the water constantly moved through the turbines and flowing in and out, this is quite possibly the most reliable renewable source around. Biofuels Made from harvested plants, there are currently three types of biofuel: ethanol, biodiesel and biojet fuel. Although many argue that this form of energy is not quite as green as it should be, technically it is still classed as a renewable source. So now you know which tools are available to us, are you ready to make the change to green energy and do your part to improve the current global warming crisis? Source:

change can increase by up to 20 percent by 2050 “unless considerable efforts are made to improve people’s resilience.” Experts cited increasing onslaught of extreme weather events as well as sea level and temperature rise as climate change’s impacts on the Philippines. Inability to cope with such impacts will spell disaster and threaten food and nutrition security nationwide, they warned. “Disasters are the leading cause of hunger,” WFP Philippines operations head Jutta Neitzel said at the conference. Studies indicate some 80 percent of hungry people live indisaster-prone and degraded areas, she noted. Among WFP’s thrusts is helping build LGUs’ capacity for DRR, she continued. She also said WFP works

with various sectors to help promote disaster preparedness and response nationwide. WFP organized the conference with support from USAID. (PNA)

said that police officers alone could not do the task. He then added that Guardians who would help maintain peace and order in the barangays would be enrolled in insurance coverage. The three-termer congressman also disclosed his platform : to nationalize the JR Borja General Hospital and use City Hall’s budget intended for it, and to fund the construction of two more city hospitals – one in the first district in Lumbia and another in his home district in barangay Tablon. He likewise envisioned the erection of a city college, create a city-wide drainage system, a barangay-based garbage collection scheme and a social housing program that would result in real land titles held by the new occupants. For the latter, Rodriguez criticized briefly the defunct Emano adminstration’s Piso Piso Program which did not give new occupants land titles but mere certificates. If he wins, he would ask the Social Housing Finance Corporation to implement their community mortgage program in the city. Under the program, the Social Housing Finance Corporation would shoulder 90 percent cost in the acquisition of the land while the remaining ten percent would be shouldered by the city government with two percent interest to be paid out by the occupants in 25 years. For the garbage collection system, Rodriguez said that City Hall’s yearly budget for a contractor must be scrapped in lieu of purchasing garbage trucks to the barangays. The barangays would segregate their own waste and the remaining filth would be transported to a new sanitary landfill. Rodriguez said the city government has already eyed a spot in Pagatpat for the purpose and said the open dumpsite at Zayas must be closed because it is unhygienic. Rodriguez is expected to be endorsed by more sectors from the transport to the academe. He and the rest of his slate will file their candidacies this Thursday, October 15.
