“Natutugunan ba ng local government officers ang mga kailangan ng kanilang komunidad?”
LGUs are the first responders to the immediate concerns on safety, health, and security of their communities. We have seen most especially how crucial their roles are in ensuring survival and safety—from ayuda to lockdown implementation to vaccine rollout—during the pandemic. This is why this coming election, we should be more discerning in studying and electing our local government officials.
There will be 18,000 local seats that will be up for grabs this coming May 9. To help us understand better what these leaders will do once elected, Fr. Tito Caluag and his friendly trio of distinguished thinkers—Dr. Leloy Claudio, Manolo Quezon, and Carlo Santiago—talk to Lito Anzures, who has served 15 years in the Office of Makati, and Bryan Asiatico, who has worked for 15 years for the Vice Mayor and City Council of Quezon City. Anzures and Asiatico will give their exclusive insights to the inner workings of the LGUs, explain what are the nuances of serving in these offices, and unpack what it takes to be a great leader in the local level.
