A Sons Advice to his Father in Political Campaigns




My father is running for municipal office the second time.  Last 2007, he ran for councilor or Sangunian Bayan (SB) Member.  It was his first time to enter politics but has been a long time public servant.  He has been leading the emergency and rescue efforts under National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) in Pontevedra and nearby towns and district.  His efforts eventually lead him and his team to win the National Award in the 3rd Class Municipality category.  He received the award from President GMA in Malacanang.

Now that he is running again for his second term, I have few advice for him during the campaign.

  1. No corny campaign jingles please.  I hate listening to them.  Especially those that are to the tune of some mainstream music.  Those translations are so corny and out of place.  And they keep on playing them early in the morning before I go to work.  Imagine those songs playing in my head the whole day.
  2. Never include your children’s faces in your campaign poster. Aside from the fact that my sister and I want to maintain a low profile, we can’t determine it our faces will improve your chances.  So better be on the safe side.
  3. And finally, play clean and fair. Politics can be a dirty game.  But keep your focus on your principles and the reason why you are doing this.

My niece and sister doing a lousy campaign. From what I know, the more skin they expose, the more effective the campaign is. Ehe.

Papa, I just wish you the best.  We will be praying for a clean and honest elections in Ponteverda.
