Fantastic/Walastic – We are expecting a walastic report card and fresh agenda of the President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III on his 3rd State of the Nation Address (SONA). However, for me "Daang Matuwid" is not sufficient as a guiding principle of his administration, but it should also be associated with the term "Hindi baku-bako".
Among the attuned performance of the Aquino administration in the past year is the campaign against his predecessor and giving weight to his promise to bring down the massive graft and corruption in the bureaucracy. A bombastic and spectacular desire to garbage those close to the Arroyos has already come to an end following the conviction of the Chief Justice Renato Corona because according to him these are the obstacles for his plan, a cleansing towards the future advantage.
Some quarters commented, hindi lang dapat "Matuwid na Daan", rather "Ang Tamang Daan". Maybe, P-noy is correct of doing everything as he wishes, but, remember the wisdom of an old man, NOT ALL CORRECT IS RIGHT. Synonymous to the terms, not all moral are legal and not all legally right are ethically correct.
The ordinance enforcing a dress code to our tricycle drivers was initiated in Virac during the time of Mayor Ribong Sarmiento, way back in 1996, according to the energetic Lady Judge Lelu Contreras. She stressed that, she calls the attention of Mr. Urgel Santelices last month to possibly enforce the said ordinance for orderly purposes, and outright, here comes the affirmative respond from the present administration of Mayor Jose Alberto.
Once again, this publication is significantly appreciating this kind immediate respond from the LGU. This is a manifestation of fostering and promoting the principle of participatory form of government which individuals and sectors can openly suggest similar to the humanly feedback manifested by the feisty lady judge. Bicol Peryodiko is joining this move of the LGU because; it is a very resounding undertaking towards well-dressed Virac and tourist magnet Catanduanes as a whole.
Emphasizing the right and duty of our tricycle drivers in Virac; are you aware that you are armed with "Professional Drivers License"? It means that you have the special privilege in our society, having the special mission to perform with. Reckless driving and do something unbecoming to your passenger is none of your business. Your are expected to take care of your passengers whenever it may be with an extra-ordinary diligence as a legitimate public utility sector.
BUSINESS AND POLITICS: Vice Governor Bong Teves is now on the soul-searching of what position he would rather go for, this coming 2013 elections. He stressed that, either or, for the governor and congressional seat can be of his options, but, it will depend on the "PULSO NG CATANDUNGANON".
The big question is; how prepared is he against those incumbent officials, Cua and Sarmiento, in terms of logistics and machineries? Presently he is in the Lakas Party with senator Bong Revilla and could possibly coalesce to UNA group of Vice President Binay, but absolutely not to LP group.
According to some observers, the joint forces of Santiago, Teves, Wong and Verceles, could possibly give a superior fight against the two political leaders in the province. ANG TANONG, PAPANO MAGKAKAISA ANG MGA DATING MAGKAKALABAN AT MGA DATING TALUNAN? except for the undefeated Teves.
IN POLITICS, THERE IS NO PERMANENT FRIENDs OR ENEMIES, BUT PERMANENT INTERESTS.
Mayor Abelardo Abundo of Viga already stepped down from his position to pave the way to his successor Vice Mayor Emeterio Tarin the opportunity to exercise his right, being the new Local Chief Executive Officer for the first time after the execution of final decision from RTC in favor of the petitioner Vega. Based on his press statement, he has still last recourse in the Supreme Court, but, he'd rather not pursue his action to prevent any possible confusion among his supporters and adverse party inside the municipal office. He stressed that he is in no way "KAPIT-TUKO" as uttered by his critics.
Mayor Abundo is on the right path of doing so. Insisting himself on that position may trigger hatred instead of sympathy from his residents because of the RTC's ruling. It is a gesture of soberness. In the end, it is beneficial for him for any future political plan. He can now reflect in either to go for his retirement or compete all over again in the forthcoming local elections.
According to some employees of Viga LGU, Mayor Abundo is one of the ideal political figures that fostered his exemplary performance as a public official in his hometown for the last 11 years. Reelection is not hard for him, if he tries his luck again. From the root word ABUNDO, MEANS ABUNDANT OF POWER.
