BSKE: Let’s vote and vote wisely!

I am delighted with President Marcos declaring Oct. 30 a special nonworking day (“Marcos declares October 30 a special non-working day for BSKE,”, 10/11/23) for the sole purpose of enabling Filipinos to take part in the upcoming Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE).

Needless to say, it is incumbent upon all of us registered voters to cast our indispensable vote for deserving candidates in our midst who we think are responsive, trustworthy, and goal-oriented, which will be more apparent during the campaign period starting today.

Accordingly, I am fervently hoping that on election day we choose leaders who are keenly aware of issues affecting our respective communities, leaders who are imbued with a strong sense of purpose as well as moral fiber, and who are likely catalysts for change. Let’s vote for leaders who, in the coming months and years, can leave a great legacy—something we can achieve, at least by voting wisely.
