Hoping for new breed of Benguet politicians
AGA K. BOLISLIS, La Trinidad, Benguet

The political season officially starts this month with the filing of certificates of candidacy for those seeking for elective positions next year.

It is our fervent wish that apart from the traditional politicians and old names that used to hold away in the past, we will see new names imbued with new mindsets and ideas joining the political arena particularly in Benguet.

Benguet voters should now assess the performance of their officials whom they voted into office in 2016. Did our local officials perform their duties well? What are their notable accomplishments for the last three years? Were they content with just performing “business as usual” or routine functions?

Our incumbent local officials should be able to provide satisfactory answers to these fundamental questions about their performance, especially if they will seek reelection. Their failure to provide adequate answers simply means that we should replace them because they are “paog-paog” in the language of a senior citizen.

To my fellow voters in Benguet, it is time to wake up from our slumber.
