“Kailangan pa rin nating tanungin kung ang sistema ngayon ay talagang nagbibigay ng sapat na pagkakataon at kapangyarihan at resources sa mga tulad ni Pol upang bigyan ng tulong ang kanilang mga botante.”
Is it true that the Sangguniang Kabataan unit of the government becomes the training ground of the “trapo”? What is also a good example of a local government official in the local community? How accessible are the services of the Barangay and SK units for the people? These questions were answered in this episode.
Fr. Tito Caluag, together with Carlo Santiago, Leloy Claudio, Manuel L. Quezon III, and our special guests, examined the political duties and responsibilities of the Barangay and SK units in our government. Our local government units, like the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan, are the ones where our people have more direct access to asking for the assistance and services they need from the government. With the help of the expertise, experiences, and stories of struggles and journeys of Pol Buencamino, SK Chairman and SK Federation President of San Jose, San Miguel, Bulacan, and Prof. Arj Aguirre of Ateneo De Manila University’s Political Science department, this episode further discussed the local government’s part in improving the lives of their people and its influence at the national level.
