I wrote about this six years ago and haven’t made a follow up yet. But I hope Barangay officials in our area are keeping up with it now. In a related development, kudos to our hard working local officials for keeping and maintaining peace and order in our barangay.
Local officials in our barangay are doing a good job for implementing a curfew for minors. This move will lessen incidents of petty to serious crimes involving young people. They should also sponsor more sporting events to encourage young people particularly out of school youth to get into sports such as basketball and chess or music for those with musical inclination. Activities like these would keep young and older kids off the streets at night. I hope barangay officials will continue to provide worthwhile activities for out-of-school youths to make them more productive individuals.
Some friendly reminder to our kababayans out there, go out and vote on Monday (May 13, 2019). Exercise your right of suffrage. If you want your wishes for the government be known let your vote be your voice.
This midterm election will be our third time to vote. Hubby and I were so glad that we are exercising our right as a Filipino. In 2015, we were able to beat the deadline for Comelec registration. We took our biometrics at the Quezon City Hall braving the long lines and heat of the sun.
On election day, you should be able to prepare a list of your candidates to make it easier for you to find their names in the ballot.
And to avoid long queues in polling precincts, go to your designated polling place early. Without any hassle, you could cast your vote in probably less than 30 minutes.
Checking on the criteria we have here, we can now choose the candidates that deserve our votes. Have you decided whom to vote for the midterm elections? Who is your bet?
