1) Belinda Olivares-Cunanan,
former Philippine Inquirer Columnist Belinda Olivares-Cunanan
I have known Lutz Barbo as a local public official for a long time and I’m ready to vote him for senator from Eastern VIsayas. That region of our country has suffered from under-representation for too long. Now it has a worthy son who can advance its interests honorably, and ABOUT TIME! He would be a great asset in the Senate, especially on the subject of Local Governments. Not too many senators know the LGU like Lutz does, and it is a most critical component of our democracy. Vote for Atty. Lutgardo Barbo for Senator, in Leni Robredo's line-up. Lutz Barbo would be a great asset in the Senate, with his long experience in Local Gov't. As Senator in Leni's slate, Atty Lutz Barbo could help strengthen the concept of Lccal Gov't. which redounds to more people empowerment. In a strong, vibirant and working DEMOCRACY, the role of the local government IS IMMEASURABLE. Our democracy is only as strong as our LGUs are strong. I'm campaigning for my friend, former Governor Lutz Barbo (#07), for senator, to represnt the interests of the LGUs in the Senaste. It is very important that the needs and demands of the FGUs are heard and answered, as they are the closest to the people and know theur urgent needs and how to answer those needs well.
