Re: Re: From the Mayor's Desk--M/V Mactan- Chapter VI

good day!

mareact yang ako rutong siling nak exagerated kag balita tungkol sa oil spill.
personal opinion lang po.. exagerated pa bagang masisiling kato? for how many months nak indi makatagam it sihi ag isra ka mga taga-Sibale, laloey ka taga-masadya? pilang anak ka nagpanuka? (buko yang ngani anak, pati maguyang).
Nakakahapros yang sa part naku, bilang usang taga-Masadya nak mabasa ka mga tuyar nak komentaryo halin sa ato Mayor.
Honestly speaking, para sa ako ay marakong isyu kato, ing atake it hika ag nagpanuka si mama pati 'tong ako mga hali dahil sa mabahong amoy it 'tong krudo, tapos asilinggon yang nak exagerated ka balitang kato..
How sad!
Sa iba sigurong buko masyadong affected, masisiling kato,pero sa mga tawong concern talaga sa kapwa Sibalenhon, it's a big deal talaga..Usa sa mga main sources of living it mga taga Sibale ka pansamantalang nawagit dahil ruto. kada ngani aber kag mga Sibalenhon nak asa ibang bansa nak uya naranasi personally kag epekto it kag oil spill ay naging marakong isyu kato para sa inra..dahil concern sinra sa mga kapwa Sibalenhon..
anyway, salamat sa mga nagbalita..exagerated man kag inro balita para sa iba, it really helped para maayaman naku ka nangyayari sa Sibale.

Re: From the Mayor's Desk--M/V Mactan- Chapter VI

Sa Ato Halandong Mayor/Mga Kasimanua,

It seems the ghost of MV Mactan will haunt and linger on us for a long time as some questions are still unanswered and apprehensions uncalmed.

While I appreciate the explanations offered by the incumbent Mayor on the issue, I find it too wordy that a reader would have to do a lot of reading between the lines. I think what many Sibalenhons wanted is for the Mayor to face the issue head on and being straightforward. Running around the issue will only lend credence to suspicions and animosity.

So, if I may give unsolicited advice to Mayor Boyet, I would suggest for him to tell his constituents in plain and simple words, in short sentences, and in bold assertions, about the truth and his position on the issue(ante mortem) and the actions to be taken(post mortem) by his administration in the event that the culprit, Calixto Enterprises, resurfaces again.

Sabi nga nila, truth will set everyone free. If there is a cloud of doubt, this will hang over our heads so better blow it away by being candid and straighforward. I know this is not the traditional school for politics but being sincere and true to ourselves are what, I feel, would make us dear to the people we serve.

Kamusta sa inrong tanan.
