Mayor Jesse Robredo, blogger

SOMETIME last May, I wrote about the plight of 15 policemen being given a raw deal by no less than their superiors at the PNP Regional Command.  If you want an update, take it from no less than Mayor Jesse Robredo, who has joined the blogosphere and whose latest entry should be a required reading for new PNP chief Avelino Razon.

The choice cuts, to my mind:

This is what is happening given the kind of leadership that we now have at PNP - Bicol Region.  This should be a test for the new PNP Chief Avelino Razon, Jr.  Can he insulate the police organization from the unnecessary interference of politicians? I recall asking some senior police officers why the the police leadership  do not stand their ground and protect their fellow officers in uniform. The timid answer was they can not count on their superiors when the going gets tough. The previous unsuccesful attempt to relieve and the recent relief of the fourteen (14) police officers from Naga City demonstrated that the PNP leadership is incapable of putting the interest of its men and the people they are serving, when pressured by influential politicians.

Who is then undermining the efforts to maintain peace and order in Naga City? The buck stops at the door of the PNP leadership in Camp Crame.  In time, the community will realize that the police organization has failed them and rightfully put the blame on where it should be. I hope it will not take a serious incident to happen before the PNP comes to its senses.
This should make my boss probably the only local chief executive-slash-blogger in the Philippines.  Which makes Oddball -- the title of his weblog -- most appropriate.

Sad to say that this is not an isolated case. Efforts to stop jueteng actually caused the jobs of several police officials already. So jueteng still exists to this day, run by same people. The only difference now, they bribe a different president.

It's very exciting to know that Mayor Jesse has started his own blog. For someone who has a lot to share indeed to the world, his blog is a great addition to the many great voices in the "blogosphere". Personally, I look forward to learn more about his leadership and management principles as they are something that I really admire about him, but more so, I am excited to hear more stories that can clearly demonstrate how he practices those principles - and other principles in life for that matter - in actual situations even before entering public service or when he is out of the realm of public service. For instance, I'd like to know how he was, his thoughts and convictions, when he was just a student or a young man starting out in life after school or as a Filipino studying in Harvard. I think this will be a great, interesting read and inspiring as well!

Nowadays, a lot of people, especially those in the younger set, are in dire need of role models whom we can learn valuable lessons in life. We also need stories from actual leaders-cum-survivors, outstanding at that, from where we can draw some wisdom and inspiration in the light of the many challenges, personal and societal, that we are facing today.

Lastly, I hope he'd always find time to blog so that it'd be always updated. :)

Sunod dapat leadership/management books na. Or maybe an autobiography. His would be great to look beside my small collection of biographies like those of Walt Disney, Donald Trump, Rudolph Giuliani, Oprah, JRR Tolkien, Malcomn X, Michael Jordan, and JFK. :)

Si Robredo corrupt din yan gaya ng mga ordinaryong politiko. . .panay pa pogi lang wala naman yan nagawa sa amin bayan dito sa naga, he never knows the true meaning of good governance, he is definitely a genuine "TRAPO" also. . .

Well his proposals were quite interesting, I knew many people who actually put him on a presidency position, I think he is good but not that good.
