Jesse Robredo is still Gabriel Bordado Jr.’s idol


Camarines Sur 3rd district Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. has one fine inspiration when it comes to rendering public service–the beloved late Interior Secretary and Naga mayor, Jesse Robredo.

“YES, WE CAN!: On the eve of the opening of the First Session of the 17th Congress, I’m re-posting this “vintage” magazine cover photo to remind me of Sec Jesse Robredo’s battle cry–YES, WE CAN!!! Of course, with GOD, through INA, nothing is impossible!” wrote Bordado on his Facebook.

Bordado is actually a protégé of Robredo, having served as his vice mayor for two consecutive terms from 2004 to 2010.

That means that the lawmaker has first-hand knowledge on what “tsinelas leadership” is all about.
