On “Where’s Gota’s Milk?” (Published on March 25, 2021):

• Antonio Doblon :

“Camarinenses, are in utter desperation over projects ever since like the CWC. These are used for international media mileage but poor financial management gripped these loaned flagship infrastructures to be paid by taxpayers. If you resist, you will be punished. But for bad projects to triumph and perpetuate, it is because Camarinenses do nothing and are powerless to redress their grievances. When shall we say goodbye to the mismanaged financial records reporting as if dogs howling that seems to be considering themselves invincibles!”

• Salvador Alcantara:

“Milking cow. I have never been there in the resort but I visited Caramoan in year 2001 for evaluation of proposed project and to organize group for livelihood purposes but it was not pushed through for some reason.”

• Witty Del

“It’s a long time overdue practice ,,, sad ,, so sad that whom we vote ,, put them into power ,, don’t really does what they are supposed to do ,, instead,,,,sell us to the devil & throw us to the dogs !!!”

“If Gota Beach a public property, all income and expenses is subject for accounting law and even the peoples money had been spent for the construction, rehabilitation and maintenance that’s why disbursing income without accounting and without following rules in regulations is tantamount for corruption then officers should be liable for violations of anti corrupt practices of the government laws.”

• Ramon Olano Jr.

“It is the responsibility of the Provincial COA to audit all provincial government corporations. Is the Gota Beach Resort a privately run entity? Or is it part of the tourism project of the provinciaI government and therefore under the auditing power of COA? Is it making money? Or is it losing? Definitely, the provincial government should be truly transparent in this regard. We wonder if the books are even properly maintained. We also got inside info that the employees at CWC Pili are drawing their salaries from the provincial coffers. Again the question: Is this CWC a government corporation? If it is, it is therefore subject to proper auditing rules. Many decades now have passed and only one family, the Villafuertes, have been running the provincial government. The people of Camarines Sur are entitled to receive a financial report of these public businesses and of their upkeep. We are voicing out not because the election is near. We are simply putting into record of what should have been done a long time ago. The silence is deafening.”
