Friends Meet Politics

Elections is coming near and I think a lot of people I know have been preparing for the past few months for their campaigns.

Let's see who's on the list:

1. MIRO QUIMBO - Congressman, District 2 , Marikina City
My frat bro and husband of my sorority sister...and I think I was right in convincing him to pursue politics in our city last November 2008.


2. SUSANA "JUDY" MAGTUBO - Councilor, District 2, Marikina City
She's my friend KM's mom and the wife of Cong. Renato Magtubo. Their family's one of those I have spent a really long time with, most especially during our high school days.

3. PIA AGATEP - Councilor, Lasam, Cagayan
I'm quite unsure if she has campaign materials available already. But if she wins, I think she'll be the youngest councilor in the Philippines.

4. ALFRED VARGAS - Councilor, District 2 , Quezon City
A celebrity trying his luck on politics. But hanging out with his group last summer in Boracay proved to me that he's a good man.

5. KIT BELMONTE - Congressman, District 2, Quezon City
It was only at a birthday party last December when I met him and found out that he's my fraternity brother and learned about his political aspirations. Such a cool guy.

 

6. MIKE DEFENSOR - Mayor, Quezon City
And I didn't know that he's running. I just saw brod Mike's posters around Batasan.



And I became more involved with politics when I got to meet these candidates in several affairs:

BIRTHDAY PARTY of a media friend

  
Senatorial Candidate Mr. Ramon Mitra
VP Candidate Edu Manzano
Presidential Candidate Gibo Teodoro

GREEN VOTE: A forum on Environmental Platforms of Political Candidates which was organized by my college organization last week.

advocate of the environment VP candidate Sen. Loren Legarda
with my friend Myka's uncle, Presidential Candidate Nick Perlas
it was a successful project!=)
Congrats UP STPA!:)

And up to now, I still don't know who should I vote for. Still got a lot of assessments to do.
Let's vote wisely everyone!=)

Oh, and I didn't know that today is the kick-off of the campaign period. I just saw it in the news a while ago. haha! What a perfect timing to blog about politics.=P
