We Stand By You

Dear SECRETARY JESSE ROBREDO, we stand by you today in solidarity, and in the coming days, as you bring your integrity, competence, and commitment to bring excellence and accountability to  local governments and the police.  (Read more for the full statement).  

September 15, 2010

Dear Secretary Robredo,

We stood by you as you instituted programs that reduced poverty incidence, defined and enforced standards through which public services should be delivered, reduced red tape, and provided citizens with an honest and competent government.

We stood by you as you opened all public documents, deliberations, decisions, and contracts to the public.

We stood by you as you provided every citizen with a voice and choice through his participation in planning and implementation of the budget and development of programs.

We stand by you today in solidarity, and in the coming days, as you bring your integrity, competence, and commitment to bring excellence and accountability to  local governments and the police.

This we do for a most worthy public servant.
