MANILA, Philippines- Nangako ang news anchor at incoming secretary ng Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) na si Erwin Tulfo nitong Martes na magiging public servant “on the ground,” at makikipagtulungan sa mga komunidad na ngangailangan ng government assistance.

“I will be a secretary on the ground. I will be a secretary people can touch, people can talk to,” pahayag ni Tulfo. “I think I have to be on the ground just to assure that I am here. The government is here. The government is watching. The government is helping. And we are here. All the help is here. So I have to be on the ground.”

“I would encourage other journalists and media people to call my attention. For example, kapag hindi nakakarating ‘yong ayuda with DSWD in times of calamity,” Tulfo stressed. “Definitely, we’ll be working hand in hand with the media people kasi sila ‘yong on the ground…Sila ‘yong nakakakita eh. So, I would need their help, panawagan pa niya.

Kinumpirma ni Tulfo nitong Lunes na siya ang mamumuno sa DSWD sa ilalim ng incoming administration ni president-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

Kabilang din sa mga pinangalanan nang miyembro ng Gabinete sina Liloan Mayor Christina Frasco (Department of Tourism), Information Technology expert Ivan Uy (Department of Information and Communications), Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Assistant Governor Amenah Pangandaman (Department of Budget and Management), at dating Manila representative Zenaida Angping (Presidential Management Staff).
