Podcast Episode 9: Sen. Chiz Escudero Answers CDO Press and Bloggers

Last October 21, 2012, the CDO Press and Bloggers gathered together at the Kagay-anon Restaurant in Rosario Arcade, Limketkai Center to attend Senator Chiz Escudero’s Press con in Cagayan de Oro City. In fact, this is my second presscon. The first was for the 15 lawmakers that donated houses to the Sendong survivors from their own pockets!(kudos). I really made sure to attend the press con for me to have a view of what and how Chiz Escudero works for the public. I arrived late as I have to attend an important family event. The aura of the room was pretty much serious when I arrived and the attendees were already throwing tough questions to the Senator and Grace Poe Llamanzares ex-MTRCB Chairwoman’s son Brian Poe Llamanzares.

This is what I love about blogging as I get to attend events which broaden my horizon on different topics. I can say that after listening to Chiz Escudero for 45 minutes, I have a glimpse of how they work for us and how can they make the Philippines better.  As a tax payer of this country, we should know where our taxes go.
