A Tale of Two Monteros

February 24th, 2010 2 comments
A hot topic circling the airwaves nowadays is the procurement of two Monteros by the board and management of a highly known institution.

Each Montero costs 1.4 million, 2.8 total. The General Manager had a CRV 2004 model for its service. The Board of Directors were given a Mitsubishi Adventure for their official use. The vehicles are mainly for representation and mobility purposes by both office.

The steaming debate boiled to a higher degree by radio announcers most notably Jo Ozabal, by pressing on the allegations that the cars are luxurious and on top of that, the officers put themselves first before the member's interests. To be fair, this institution has procured 12 L300s priced at Php 656,700 each to be used for service and maintenance.

One can only intelligibly guess as to why it had to be Monteros when a perfectly sound CRV is still serviceable? Or when two Monteros can be turned into four Innovas? Or two Avanzas and three more L300s? It is regrettable that at a time of economic despair, thrift is a mum word.

While appearance can command impressions, on the other hand, looks can be deceiving. The argument can be pressed that Presidents and General Managers of a company should represent well, dress aptly, ride and roll appropriately. Nevertheless, a bumbling company merely struggling to make ends meet, should follow the ways of the ants, eat what is enough and keep something for the winter.

What is more, there is always more than meets the eye. Rich people dress casually in fear of kidnappers. Well to do ride in common vehicles afraid of numerous drive by shootings and hold-ups. The norm is to travel by havanas and a bayong in hand with one million pesos kept under the vegetables. The loudest one in the room is always the weakest and the easy target.

With the El Niño heating the nation, the global economy unstable as ever, and the looming break of monopoly in electric distribution fast on the heels of this highly known institution, the decision to buy a luxury car is head scratching at best. When the lines are old, the poles dilapidated, and the service turtle paced, while on the side, the service vehicles are shiny, new and cost a fortune, the court of public opinion is understandably judgmental at its best.

Ride with them.

ADNU Hosts Mayoral Fora

The University Social Involvement (USIC) - Committee on Socio-Political Education and Involvement (CSPEAI) and the Social Sciences Department of the Ateneo de Naga University (ADNU) teamed up to hold mayoral forums entitled Safeguarding 2010 and Beyond: Getting to Know the Candidates last 18 February 2010.

The first of the two forums was held at ADNU’s Gymnansium from 9-12 o’clock and featured four Naga city mayoral candidates – Atty. Adan Botor, former City Councilor Luis Ortega, Incumbent City Councilor Atty. John Bongat and former City Mayor and former Camarines Sur 2nd District Representative Sulpicio Roco.

The forum was divided into three parts. The first part gives the candidates 20 minutes to answer key issues on Governance, Environment, Economics, Peace and Order, Education, Arts and Culture and Social Services. The second series of questions came from the panelists composed of Office of Student Affairs (OSA) Director Atty.

For this part the candidates was given only two minutes to answer questions. The third and last series of questions, pre-screened by a technical board, came from the audience consisting of students of Naga city. For this part the questions range from the pertinent “What’s your stand in the RH bill?” to the revealing “If you won, will you appoint one of your rivals as city administrator? If yes, who will it be?” The question which solicited much interest and applause from the crowd was “If you’re not running, who will you vote for among your rivals?”

The second forum was held at Instructional Media Center (IMC) form 1:30- 4 in the afternoon. Resource persons for the event were mayoral candidates of the municipality of Pili composed of former municipal mayor Tomas Bongalonta, incumbent municipal mayor Romy Salazar, Atty. Noreen San Luis and Dexter Morano.

This forum likewise followed the three section format. Panelists were Deputy Academic Vice president for Formation Janet Badong-Badilla, OSA Director Atty. Jo Aileen Cabiles, Noel Amador of USRO and APC and Glenn Fabia of the Supreme Student Government-Student Tribunal.
