Mar Roxas Visits Liga ng Mga Brgy (Mindanao Chapter)


Mar Roxas Visits The Liga ng Mga Brgy Mindanao Chapter

Secretary of Interior and Local Government Mar Roxas joined members of the Liga Ng Barangay (LNB), Mindanao Chapter during their assembly on Wednesday (September 2-4).

The event, which has the theme “Learn, Improve, Govern, Act to ensure Disaster Resilient Barangays,” was held at the Bayview Park Hotel in Manila.

Roxas was joined by LNB National President Attorney Ed Abesamis and LNB Vice President for Mindanao Gerard Ramiro, as well as the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Directors for Mindanao.

Mindanao has experienced several natural and man-made disasters as of late. Several areas have been affected by perennial flooding and landslides, as well as skirmishes with rebel insurgents. Thus, it has never been more imperative to be proactive in mitigating disasters in the region.

As DILG chief and vice chairman of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), Roxas believes that preparedness and alertness, especially at the barangay level, are among the key factors needed to lessen the impact of disasters on both the citizens and the environment.


VP of LNB Gerard Ramiro Shares His Heart

During the sit down we were given the chance to talk to the VP of the LNB Gerard Ramiro. A hard working politician, Mr. Ramiro is best known for single handedly turning around the tourism sector of Misamis Occidental. When asked about Mar Roxas chances, he explained that as individuals his group feels strongly about Roxas since the presidentiable has platforms that could really benefit all barangays. He also believes that right now continuation of the current developments is the best possible scenario.
