Naga City Mayor Jesse Robredo explains that his Ramon
Magsaysay Award is his people’s affirmation
of their continuing quest for meaningful politics
and governance. He describes the city’s history
of active citizen participation and their tradition
of seeking out new ideas through debates and discourse.
Some of their ideas such as the peace zone, i-governance
and tripartite partnership for social housing have
been hailed among the world’s best practices.
Liberal Example of Leadership: Jesse Robredo
2000 Ramon Magsaysay Awardee for Government Service
Dr. Milwida Guevara, 2008 Gawad Haydee Yorac Awardee
for Public Service, introduces Jesse Robredo as a
young man who set out to slay the dragons of Naga
City: poverty, corruption, inefficient public service
and Jueteng. Armed with the weapons of honor, vision,
sincerity and competence, he transformed a city in
disarray into one that is multi-awarded and a model
of good governance.
