withSecRobredo-300x223On behalf of my family, I would like to extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to the wife, the children, and the entire family of Secretary Jesse Robredo; our hearts go out to them. As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Local Government, I had the chance to work with him close enough to establish respect and esteem for him -- his work ethics, his sense of duty, his professionalism; and as a person, a learned man, unassuming, and sincere. It was always a pleasure to inter-act with him as Secretary of the DILG, progressive, and always helpful and supportive. His only agenda as public servant was to do right for the people and nothing else. His demise is a loss not only to the Aquino administration but to the entire country.
