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 “sheΒ 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)

Her father’s daughter through and through

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.
