Good housekeeping award-2
DEPARTMENT of the Interior and Local Government Sec. Robredo should guard against the wily tactics of overly enterprising and graft-scarred local chief executives who will stop at nothing just to secure the prestigious Good Housekeeping Award.
It, surely, would be stripped of its essence or meaning if local shenanigans, thru sheer “creativity’, are permitted to win the same.
There are more than 333 very recent LP additions in Camarines Norte – all erstwhile die-hard members of the Lakas-Kampi-CMD Party of which GMA remains chairman-emeritus.
The new “turncoats” were led by that province’s vice governor, several board members and elective of-ficials from a dozen towns there.
But Sec. Jesse Robredo should not allow that kind of “CHANGING CLOTHES” by other political leaders and their respective minions in the Province of Masbate, after witnessing, first-hand, how they cajoled, maligned, harassed, and even maltreated the remnants of the LP leadership there during the May 2010 elections.
These “other” political leaders in economically-depraved and perpetually crime-embroiled Masbate are shrewd tradpols of the first order.
They were the “money-goloids”, shameless PGMA and/or Manny Villar worshippers.
Certainly not the kind we can expect to demonstrate genuine COMMITMENT to the ideals of LP.
They are panicking to join LP NOW only for their own convenience, or more to the embarrassing point: to ensure unhampered release of their PDAF funds/pork barrel and other perceived benefits/projects, which shall be their main sources of funds for their/their families’ 2013 election/re-election bids.
Think supreme sacrifice.
We were not born yesterday, Sec. Jesse Robredo.
