Once upon a time, a young, bright mechanical engineer had the world under his feet. One night, he had a dream. He was being sent to slay four dragons in Naga City: poverty, corruption, inefficient public service, and the gambling dragon called jueteng. “How will I do it”, he asked? “I do not have a magic sword.” I am not invincible! But the voice told him, “Do not be afraid.” You have stronger weapons of honour, vision, sincerity, and competence.
In a simple presentation before a packed audience AT AIM in 2007, Synergeia asked government and COMELEC why a public servant of such integrity and competence should be suspended on a false charge that his great grandparent was not a Filipino.
Formerly the Mayor of Naga City, Secretary Robredo explains how to promote local government-led systemic reforms at the community level.
