Message: Provincial Development Council Meeting

September 24, 2019

As the former Chair of the Senate Committee on Finance, I introduced a special provision in this year’s General Appropriations Act that ensures that local development plans are formulated based on a comprehensive consultation among the local development council, the local peace and order council, and the local disaster risk reduction management council, along with other local sectoral councils/committees.

 

By emphasizing the important role of the local development councils, the coordination and relationship among local and provincial offices and agencies are strengthened, which are the keys to achieving inclusive, equitable, resilient and sustainable development not only for our province, but also for the entire nation.

Message: Provincial Solid Waste Management Board Meeting

September 23, 2019

Hindi lingid sa ating kaalaman ang patuloy na pagbabago sa ating klima at paglaki ng ating problema sa kalikasan.

 

Ang hindi wastong pagtapon ng mga basura ay isa sa mga pangunahing dahilan kung bakit laganap ang polusyon, hindi lamang sa ating probinsya, kung hindi pati na rin sa buong bansa.

Hindi malilimutan ng bawat lider sa lipunan ang kanyang Araw ng Panunumpa, dahil ito ay nagpapahiwatig ng isang simula: ang misyon na maglingkod sa kanyang kapwa at sa kanyang komunidad.

Thank you for attending this briefing on the mandates, functions, and responsibilities of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) and the Regional Development Council (RDC). It is unfortunate that I am not able to attend this briefing with you as budget hearings are ongoing in the House of Representatives.

Privilege Speech

Message: Capability Building on Innovative Leadership for Legislative Staff (CBILLS) Opening Ceremony

August 29, 2019

I am pleased to meet the hard-working people behind the great doors and offices of this Congress. Thank you for helping make our legislative sessions, hearings, and meetings faster, more convenient, and more productive.  I can tell that many of you, if not all, work tirelessly to get your job done.

 

However, being able to survive in this kind of environment is not enough reason to stop learning. The goal, as in everything, is to be the best at what you do. Especially because you are public servants, it is important that you continue learning and developing your knowledge, skills, and talents to serve the Filipino people.
