Barangay Election 2010

When people from our community ask who I'm going to vote for this coming barangay election, I respond with a cold shrug of my shoulder. Why? In today’s present political system, voters are now wise as they say. It is not important what those aspiring candidates can offer to them. Voters are merely looking for potential benefits that they can get to them in exchange for political favors. Barangay is, like it or not, the smallest political unit in the country.

If we really want to change our poor governance system into a dynamic one, it should start from the grassroots. The rebuilding must start at the foundation, the barangay. Society, indeed, has to be reformed one individual at a time. We need to be flexible and sensitive to the real needs of our people especially those citizens who have no voice to speak for themselves. People need to work together to achieve progress for the community. Leaders cannot do nothing if we (people) will not give our part for the common good of our community. Lets all get involved in the governance of our local community. Aspiring leaders, do your unselfish part for the welfare of your community. Your leadership must be governed by the virtue of your conscience. We should be influence by our clean motives to serve and not to take this as opportunity to fight back against our opponents.
