The Jesse Robredo Documentary Last August 2, 2013, I attended the screening of Jesse Robredo’s documentary which was held at the Little Theater. Almost a year ago, Jesse Robredo along with two others lost their lives as their plane crashed off the shore of Masbate. It’s been a year after his death and he is still remembered not only by his family but also by the people who had been touched by his service. Kaya Natin! Movement For Good Governance and Ethical Relationship, with the help of Miriam College's Institutional Network for Social Action (INSA), launched The Jesse Robredo Documentary here at Miriam College. The documentary is for the legacy and remembrance of Robredo’s life and times. His wife, Rep. Leni Robredo also attended the gathering. The documentary provided opportunity for the MC students and generally the public to know more about the life that he lived and the legacy that he left behind particularly the “Tsinelas Leadership”. It was named after Jesse Robredo who is known to wear tsinelas even when carrying out his official duties as Cabinet Secretary. For me, it just shows his simplicity and his ties with the masses. I think leaders must be accessible to the people they serve instead of intimidating them through their influence, power and their wealth. But people were not shy to approach Robredo because he made them feel that he was also one of them, by simply wearing his comfortable slippers. This made him popular to the common people. The documentary showed the late secretary’s willingness to go where most people normally do not go just to be with the most underprivileged people. Whether responding to disasters or planning to rescue flood victims, Jesse Robredo would always turn up. The documentary also showed how he fought for the rights of the urban poor as well as the rights of the disabled people to a public education. The concrete proof of his works can be seen in the high schools, daycare

    Secretary Robredo to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is an effort of the Aquino Administration to have a successful grassroots-level performer and a paragon of good governance to effect change in the national level. I believe that the idea is for a veteran and proven NPM practitioner who understands the local scene can effect change. This strategy has been marred with recent unsavory criticisms of how he handled the DILG, e.g. the Quirino Grandstand Massacre. On Robredo, I…

Former Senator Aquilino Pimentel, on his last term, filed a bill proposing its abolition. Former…

    4th SONA of P-noy (Highlights) REMEMBER JESSE ROBREDO Millions of Filipinos grieved when Jesse Robredo passed. For almost two decades, he served and led Naga with skill, compassion, and humility. One of the hardest things I ever had to do as President was to deliver the news to Leni, after the tragedy. Apart from grieving, I could not avoid blaming myself for what happened to Jesse. Maybe if I had not asked him to join my Cabinet, he would still be alive today. Maybe if he had remained in Naga…
