RIP, Gina Lopez

06:01 AM August 20, 2019

Former environment secretary Gina Lopez understood the environmental issues besetting our country.

Her passion for her work as then interim secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources was inspiring and energizing.

The strong-willed woman that she was, she stuck to her policy decisions and held her ground, which unfortunately created anger and hatred toward her among some concerned mining companies and, worse, stirred unhappy admiration and envy in some politicians.

We lost one of the country’s “best and the brightest” leaders. May your soul rest in peace, Secretary Gina.
