    Default Richard Gordon and Bayani Fernand for 2010


    Gordon, Fernando team up as 2010 ‘transformers’

    MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATE) Call us the "transformers," Senator Richard Gordon and former Metro Manila Development Authority chairman Bayani Fernando said of their teamup in next year's polls.

    Gordon announced Tuesday his intention to run for president under his party Bagumbayan-Volunteers for a New Philippines and introduced Fernando as his running mate.

    They filed their certificates of candidacy on the same day at the Commission on Elections office in Manila.

    "We can meet the challenges of the country," Gordon said in a news conference in the Senate before proceeding to the Comelec.

    Gordon said both of them have been "natural executives" who have "transformed" their communities.

    He was referring to their experience as local executives – Gordon was mayor of Olongapo, Zambales, and eventually head of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, whiile Fernando was mayor of Marikina and later chairman of the MMDA.

    Fernando said he and Gordon's team-up was a "fusion of two performers'' with the intent of “transform(ing) the minds and hearts of our people to build character and community for a better Philippines.”

    Gordon and Fernando were at the Senate along with their wives, Kate Gordon and Marikina Mayor Marides Fernando.

    Fernando sought the support of his party, the Lakas-Lampi-CMD, for his presidential bid but lost to former defense chief Gilbert Teodoro.

    Fernando was mum about his 2010 plans up until when he declared his vice presidential bid.

    Gordon was the author of Republic Act 9369 or the poll automation law and was a staunch supporter of the 2010 computerized elections technology to limit if not prevent cheating and poll fraud, usually associated with manual balloting.

    Gordon visited Comelec immediately after the poll body signed the P7.2 billion deal with Smartmatic-Total Information Management, which will provide 82,200 machines to automate the voting.

    When all the while I though that I was decided on whom to vote for the elections next year, then this DUO showed up.

    I guess, I finally have a candidate that I would strongly support for next.

    Both are ACTION MEM, who would rather let their work do the talking. Gordon transformed Olangapo and Subic into an economic hub, while BF transformed Marikina from the being the rape capital of the Philippines to become one of the country's first class and multi-awarded cities. In terms of track record and competencee to govern, both are one of the, if not, the most competent among next year's presidentiables.

    Achievements:

    As Senator

    Noong 2004 pambansang halalan, umakbo si Gordon bilang senador ng Pilipinas. Siya ay ikalimang may pinakamataas ang boto dahilan ng kanyang positibong imahe sa mga tao. Ang mga sumusunod ay ang mga batas na naisakatuparan ni Gordon habang siya ay nasa posisyon bilang senador:

    * RA 9333 (Fixes the regular elections at the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM))
    * RA 9369 (New Automated Election System law)
    * RA 9334 (Sin Tax Law)
    * RA 9399 & RA 9400 (Fixes the tax regime in Special Economic Zones)
    * RA 9346 (Abolition of Death Penalty Law)
    * RA 9367 (Bio-Fuels Act of 2007)
    Philippine Jaycees)
    * Dakilang Guro Award (Division of City Schools Olongapo City)
    * Silver Humanitarian Award (Philippine National Red Cross)

    As Mayor, Gordon transformed Olongapo from a sin city to a model city when he was mayor for 14 years(1980-1993). He introduced various innovations in local governance. After the dismantlement of the US Military Bases in 1991, he led an army of 8,000 volunteers in making Subic into a premiere investment hub. The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority attracted over 300 investors and provided some 90,000 jobs for Filipinos.

    As Secretary of Tourism in 2001, Gordon worked wonders for the then tarnished reputation of the Philippine tourism industry "WOW Philippines" , plagued by kidnappings, damaging travel advisories, the SARS disease and the continued threat of terrorism.

    As Red Cross Chairman, Since 1986, Gordon was elected as governor of the Philippine National Red Cross, taking active roles in rescue, relief and rehabilitation in various disasters from shipwrecks, typhoons, 1990 earthquake in Cabanatuan, 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo, 2004 landslides in Aurora, Quezon and 2006 Ginsaugun, Southern Leyte mudslide and the PhilSports Arena stampede. Currently he is the chairman as well as a Member of the Governing Board of the International Federation of the Red Cross.

    Imagine, from 4th class municipality and Rape Capital of the Philippines to these numerous awards. Let's talk about credentials. Let's talk political will. Let's talk about actions and not promises.

    ang problima ana run kay kung makit-an ba kaha ni sila sa masang pilipino nga grabi man ug kwarta ang mga kontra ug willing kaayo mo invest ug billions para ads nila as if pila ang sweldo sa posisyon nga ilang gi-apas!

    but at least with them we have hope for chance (basing from what they have done and not just what they are about to do)... it's up to us to spread the word istoryans!
