Never a fan of the political world, it’s sad to know that there are still good guys out there. The people from Naga and the whole nation is mourning the loss of DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo.
The 54-year-old Robredo was appointed by President Aquino as secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government on July 9, 2010.
He was supposed to attend a meeting for his confirmation as DILG chief with the Commission on Appointments on August 29.
Robredo finished his undergraduate at the De La Salle University with a degree on Industrial Management Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
He finished his Masters in Business Administration at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman before taking up Public Administration at John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Robredo was elected mayor of Naga City in 1988 at the age of 29. When he took office, Naga was a poor third-class city with low revenues and a stagnant economy.
Robredo partnered with private businesses to revitalize the city’s economy and re-organized Naga’s transportation systems. By 1990, Naga had become a first-class city and Robredo was re-elected.
Robredo was a recipient of the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Government Service in 2000, Asia’s equivalent of the Nobel Prize. Robredo was cited by the board of trustees as “giving credence to the promise of democracy by demonstrating that effective city management is compatible with yielding power to the people.”
Sometimes I just want to curl up under the blankets due to the chilly weather or just wear under armour compression shorts due to the heat. I guess this is a sign of global warming. All those years we didn’t care about what happened to the environment is coming back to bite us big time. Now we think of doing something about the trash problem when it’s now at it’s worst stage. Talk about too late.
Bought a Human Nature Citronella bug spray again, it’s been a while but due to being in the hospital for more than a week. I missed the delivery. Human Nature however will resend the item without any charges. That’s so cool. Hate the DEET so gotta stick with the Citronella smell.
Matthew Perry, everyone knows him as Chandler on the sitcom Friends. He can say wall fountain here and be all funny about it. Matthew stars as Ryan King dealing with the loss of his wife. He plays a radio host sportscaster who ends up in a grief counseling group. That’s where all the fun begins. Let’s hope the show makes it!
Up and down.
Committed or not.
Hubby says I should give up my dream of looking as slim as Taylor Swift.
Ha ha ha.
For that I can give him points but I don’t want to give up or maybe I will.
Ever wondered what a Mexican made guitar sounds like? Purchasing a fender super champ x2 guitar center can make that ordinary sound turn into numerous watts of amplified music. It’s hardly going to bore you because if you like tweaking then you can enjoy different effects that would go with your rhythm. It’s not difficult to do so too, it would feel like such an exhilarating musical experience.
