My Senators, part 4
It is easy to assume that my choice for senator today comes from a political family. After all, her father famously ran against the
adorable annoying GMA in the fraud-riddled 2010 presidential elections. Because he lost, he didn’t get the chance to serve in office. If she wins, she will not be a part of any political family. She is, however, considered showbiz royalty because of her parents.
I did not include the ‘Showbiz factor’ in my filters for this election there isn’t any actor/actress in the race for the senate.
But the main reason I chose her is because “she believes that condoms, pills and injectables are not abortifacient. She believes in the woman’s right to choose, and a support system that builds on the family unit.” (from an interview with Patricia Evangelista)
Grace Poe has the educational background and training to qualify as a senator. And, her track record in the MTRCB, albeit short, demonstrated her leadership that can translate to political will. She has my vote.
