Choosing barangay leaders

On Monday, the people of Negros Oriental, along with millions of other Filipinos, will again select their barangay leaders.

From the way the campaign leaflets are plastered on the trees, posts, and walls, this promises once again to be an exciting event for our locality.

There was a time when hardly anyone paid attention to this lowly political post. But with the hefty salaries barangay captains get, running a village has suddenly become a full time job with a full- time pay. Small wonder why some people are even leaving their day jobs in order to run for barangay captain.

Which stands to reason. For a country that eats, breathes, and lives politics, any activity in the smallest political unit in the country is bound to catch some attention. After all, what happens in the barangay is a microcosm of what happens in the larger body of politics, like the town or city.

This event concerns each one of us. But how much attention are we giving to this political exercise? For instance, do we know the candidates for barangay captain in our community? Are we even concerned with what is happening around us?

As the saying goes, big things come from small beginnings. Any improvement that we wish would happen in the city or province has to start from the barangays. What we are looking at, therefore, is not just a very small local event, for in selecting our barangay leaders lies the future of our City, Province, and country.

We can do no less by selecting the most qualified candidates to represent our interests at the barangay captain in our community barangay level.
