“Abierto ya diamun ojos. Cansao ya kame na promesas. necesita cambia ya (Our eyes are now open. We are tired of promises. We need change)."
Thus, the call of hundreds of Tugbungan residents who attended the brief “pulong-pulong” of independent council aspirant John David Atilano Corpin held last Friday at the community’s basketball court.
The local folks led by Tugbungan coordinator Susan Jasmines expressed confidence that JDC will be able to deliver if he is given the chance to serve in the City Council because of his sincerity and honesty.
“Tiene alli mga politicians conose lang cunel maga hente si tiempo lang de eleccion. Pero si JDC bien otro gayot canila, ta puede man came mira si quemodo ele de sincero na suyu palabra,” the residents said in chorus.
For his part, JDC stressed he can only be an effective fiscalizer if the citizenry will be his partner if he makes it in the august body after the elections.
“I want you to remind and inform me about your sentiments and observation so I will not fail to deliver the goods. You have the right because you are my boss,” JDC emphasized.
JDC vowed to be a councilor who can help carry out the people’s demand in the Sangguniang Panlungsod and not a councilor who just hide when people are in need.
He said as an alderman, he promised to activate satellite offices in many District 2 barangays just to be close to the people he serves.
“If you want change then you have to start now. Put someone who can serve you. I am here offering my sincere services to you. Make me you partner because if not, you will lose someone who really cares for you,” JDC added.
