Pangan: A deserving individual

CONSIDERING the current administration's thrust to enforce transparency and accountability in governance, people imbued with a mission to carry out these objectives should be placed in offices of trust and, at the same time, serve in utmost faith.

People like Sandra Cam deserve to be entrusted with a lofty position in government, she, of the conviction and purpose to serve and indeed serve with dedication and focus.

Remember that Sandra Cam was a whistle-blower to expose anomalies in jueteng operations and put to light the personalities involved in the nefarious activities. The government was grossly disadvantaged in terms of revenues lost as taxes due from the lucrative illegal numbers games were foregone.

From the jueteng brouhaha, Sandra Cam emerged in the PCSO scene this time as a board member of this revenue-generating agency. This time, she has a mission to rid this agency of irregularities in its operations.

Sandra Cam does not know me from Adam. I only read about her feistiness through newspaper accounts but I am impressed about her straightforwardness and candor in expressing herself. These qualities definitely endear her to people who serve well and without mental reservation or evasion.

The way she comports herself deserves her being appointed General Manager of PCSO to replace the ex-military man now at the helm of the agency. She can match, if not surpass the capability and competence (and assertiveness) of the present top executive of PCSO.

That's Sandra Cam for you. If we aim for good governance and accountability, we can count on her. Can we agree on this?


The Dona Asuncion Lee Integrated School at Xevera, Tabun, is part of the Mabalacat City's academic sector which offers elementary and senior high school curricula. It has a sizeable student population and claims to be a Peace Zone where no conflict exists.

I was surprised, therefore, to hear that there was a bomb threat last Monday, January 29, 2018, prompting the school authorities to send home the pupils/students till the bomb disposal unit of the local PNP cleared the school area.

It's good no untoward incident occurred in the Peace Zone school.
