Peso woes spur pep talk from Masbate VG Revil


Masbate Vice Governor Kaye Revil isn’t the type to place the blame on anyone over a particular problem–she’d just rather do a pep talk.

The headline-grabbing slide of the Philippine peso is no exception.

“Read about the news of the peso dropping yesterday to its lowest since 2009. It is very alarming. At the end of the day, people must survive. And we do- based on our ability to cope with our needs,” she wrote on her Facebook.

“This is not the time to start with the blame game and just call it with a different name,” Revil said in stark contrast to pundits who had ready theories about the plunging foreign exchange rate.

Instead, the lady politiko underscored that now is the time for local leaders to work together for the sake of tue citizenry.

“This is the time, we summon our inner visionaries and work hand in hand that our country will envision a common goal- a strong & livable Republic of the #Philippines for today & more so for tomorrow.”

Revil said that as elected officials, they are burdened with the task of “creating a better nation for the next generation” anyway.

“Let us stand together & regain the value of the peso in as much as we want to regain our dignity as a people. This we must do- collectively, inclusively- regardless of political, social, religious & what nots differences we have,” she said.
