Test of Resilience for Bicolanos
After typhoon “Rolly” breezed through our Region, we are trying to go back to normal and start back to our usual daily routine. As they say it’s business as usual. We take note however, of the worthwhile public service which Mike Padua has rendered in dishing out accurate and minute by minute information of the track of the typhoon, which inevitably gave residents the opportunity to make the necessary precautions and preparation for the coming typhoon. It may perhaps behoove upon the City Government of Naga under the present leadership of Hizzoner Nelson Legacion to give Mr. Mike Padua a mayoral citation for his efforts not only during this typhoon but even in the past. Admittedly, typhoon “Rolly” is one of the strongest typhoons which crossed our path. As of today, the dirt and debris resulting from the super typhoon still litters some side streets of Naga and remain to be collected by our garbage collectors. Lack of garbage trucks could be one reason for this, but the city administration can perhaps tap the assistance of contractors to provide the necessary number of trucks for the purpose.
TV and other broadcasts media reports indicated that Ms. Sarah Duterte in town for a conference with Camarines Sur local officials. I have heard Mayor Fermin Mabulo call Ms. Duterte as the next president of the Philippines. In the meantime, we have reports also that Vice-President Leni Robredo has been going the rounds visiting typhoon devastated provinces and cities bringing relief goods. If this is an indication of what will transpire in the next electoral process, it could be an interesting bout.
