TOLENTINO, Francis (PDPLBN)
'TOL ng Bawat Pilipino
I stand for “Green Justice,” believing that our ecosystem is a gift from God which should be improved and preserved for future generations, and all should be accountable.
I therefore propose the practice of responsible mining coupled with assured revenues for host communities to be used for sustainable community development projects. I also propose the provision of farm subsidiaries in the form of a Conditional Cash Transfer Program for farmers in order to level the playing field between our agriculture sector and those of other countries.
I stand for disaster preparedness and speedy rehabilitation for greater resiliency in the face of climate change.
I therefore propose that the national government allocate funds to a Community Rehabilitation/Recovery Trust Fund for LGUs.
I also propose setting up a well-planned system for rehabilitating communities adversely affected by natural and man-made disasters, with the assistance of the private sector, through appropriate tax incentives, and urban renewal programs.
I stand for the importance of having clean, accessible and potable drinking water.
I therefore propose the creation of a Department of Water Resources Management to ensure the access of all Filipinos to safe potable water.
CLEAN AND ACCESSIBLE WATER
I stand for improved quality of life for our senior citizens, believing in their great contribution to society.
I therefore propose their continuing education and the reintegration of those qualified and willing to appropriate positions in the labor force, and increase retirement benefits.
SENIORS' QUALITY OF LIFE
I stand for the protection of our natural environment, the integrity of the ecology, and food security so that future generations of Filipinos can live sustainably
I therefore propose for the establishment of special environmental courts solely to try cases involving damages made to Mother Nature and its harmful effects on the citizens.
PROTECTION OF ENVIRONMENT
I stand for greater empowerment of local government units and establishment of regional clusters for increased economic benefits at the grassroots.
I therefore propose amendments to the Local Government Code that will increase the allocation of Internal Revenue Allotment based on performance and its automatic release to LGUs and create a Police Youth Reserve Corps to help in peace, order and disaster response.
EMPOWERMENT OF LGUs
I stand for the greater participation and empowerment of women in the labor force to unleash their full potential for economic development.
I therefore propose womens’ statutory right to wellness and health facilities for their children.
I stand for better rights for our teachers who mold the minds of our children.
I therefore propose the establishment of a National Teachers Medical Centre to ensure their well-being.
BETTER RIGHTS FOR TEACHERS
I AM FRANCIS TOLENTINO,
AND I STAND FOR A BETTER PHILIPPINES.
