SENATE OFFICE, Manila, April 2, 2011-Since his released from detention last December, Senator Antonio “Sonny” F. Trillanes IV visited his hometown in Albay, Bicol last Friday to grace the start of the month-long 15th Magayon Festival and hold consultations with local officials and his constituents.
Trillanes spoke at the annual cultural celebration and led the convention of the Samahang Magdalo in Legazpi City, saying that it is important to celebrate and to commemorate this kind of tradition because it strengthens and unites us as Bicolanos and as Filipinos.
At least 15 chapters of the Samahang Magdalo from theBicol region consulted by Trillanes in Legazpi City, explaining that holding public office is not a one-man show.
“It has been my personal policy to pursue participative and consultative leadership by maintaining open communication channels to our constituents,” Trillanes said.
Trillanes also met with Albay Governor Joey Salceda, local officials, members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan and Church leaders and discussed local concerns and identified solutions for the benefit of Bicolandia. (Jason de Asis)
