I grew up in Naga City and I have seen how Sec. Jesse M. Robredo transformed our sleeping city into one of the most progressive cities in Bicol and Southern Luzon.
Growing up, we’ve always looked up to him not only as a good leader and role model but also as a person of good character. Mayor Jess was simple, humble and soft-spoken.
The simplest politician I’ve known, you’ll see him walking in t-shirt, shorts and slippers or riding his bike solo. During calamities, you’ll see him fighting fire together with the firefighters or cleaning up dirt and mud after the typhoon.
Mayor Jess was very approachable and listens to all his constituents, everybody loves him. He always wears a smile and has a joyous personality.
In his 18 years as mayor, he made Naga City “The Happy Place”. And now, that happy place is mourning.
RIP Mayor Jess. You’ll forever be missed. =((
