In the report of inq7 regarding the life of those living in baranggay Paltic....hmmmmm,well and totoo hindi nga namin malaman kung talagang ginagamit talaga yung fund na 15 million something for the dredging yup,hinuhukay nga yung ilog,at gumuguho parin yung bundok so its useless and non-sense.Dun sa report ng inquirer last feb 26 na inuutusan ni Governor Angara na magkaroon ng transparency sa funds well shes really concern about our welfare mabuti pa si gov ganon sa aming mga taga Paltic....sana po ay independent body ang magconduct nung transparency check para po makita yung totoong pinupuntahan ng fund....alam namin na our local officials are doing their best to do their duties kaya lang there are some that have personal interest in whatsoever....dun sa mga gumagawa ng kababalaghan at walang konsenya sa pondo namin hopefully the next time na bumaha sana kayo na lang ang tangayin at mamatay!
