You Have To Stop Me, says Tagbilaran Mayor

Sunday Post: You have to stop me, Lim tells his critics  
You have to stop me from doing what is best for Tagbilaran.            
This was the message issued by Mayor Dan Lim to his critics who have resorted to a signature campaign in a bid to stop the P50-million earmarked for the rehabilitation of city roads.            
 "If you think I will give in to orchestrated pressure, think again," Lim said in a message address to his critics.            
The mayor has maintained that the opposition to the loan is orchestrated by his political rivals in a bid to score a psychological victory if the project will not push through.            
 "I do what I believe is right – even if it is unpopular and even if it costs me my reelection," the outspoken mayor declared.            
He recalled that some of the major programs of his administration encountered rough sailing from his critics.            
 "My critics wanted to stop our support for education first by saying not all …

OFWs aknowledge Bohol Representative Chatto’s deep concern

OFWs aknowledge Chatto's deep concern
Rep. Edgar Chatto's concern for the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) is widely recognized and appreciated by the sector whose remittances help keep the economy afloat. 
Sources in the local business community even remarked it does not exaggerate to say that this is in itself Chatto's one way of contributing to the economy. 
But the Bohol congressman's indelible imprint on the lives of the migrant workers is his rescue of the OFWs in critical condition, even from imminent death. 
He had caused the release from foreign jails of OFWs who were falsely charged, oftentimes by their cruel masters and employers, with crimes and offenses they had not committed. 
Chatto facilitated the repatriation of many OFWs who had long been hiding or safekept after running away from their tyrant employers.

He has been a Balilihan mayor, vice governor and three- term congressman with the coveted plum of being Bohol governor next in line of his continuing quest to stay on top of his chosen career.
