The highly progressive city of Muntinlupa is in the spotlight once more as incumbent City Councilor Raul Corro got elected as the national chairman of the Philippine Councilors League (PCL), according to a Manila Bulletin news report. It should be noted that Corro, who has an established record of public service in Muntinlupa, was endorsed for the leadership post.
To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
Muntinlupa Councilor Raul Corro was elected national chairman of the Philippine Councilors League (PCL), the association of municipal and city councilors.
Corro was endorsed to the position by leaders such as outgoing president Jose Nelson Tata Sala, former national chairman Alan Zulueta, former president Luis Chavit Singson, and various other groups and regional leagues.
“We join the Sangguniang Panlungsod and the rest of the City in offering our warmest congratulations to Atty. Corro, a true-blue Muntinlupeño who is a model of public service. We are truly proud of you,” said Mayor Ruffy Biazon.
Corro is credited by the PCL National Board for the approval of the law granting professional eligibility to Sanggunian members who are college students and who have completed three elected terms in office but have not yet taken the Civil Service examinations.
He is also recognized as responsible for the granting of salary step increments to elected officials. This benefit was previously limited to appointed officials in government service.
Prior to his unopposed election as national chairman, Corro served the 17,000-member PCL as chairman of the Advocacy Committee and regional chairman for the National Capital Region (NCR).
In the last five local elections, Corro has consistently been ranked the top councilor in Muntinlupa, where he is currently the majority floor leader.
The above report ended stating that the City Council of Muntinlupa approved unanimously a resolution recognizing Corro.
Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this development? Are you delighted to learn about Corro’s election as national chairman of the PCL? What do you hope to see from the PCL under Corro’s leadership?
