Let me start by saying that I am not exaggerating  but what is so pleasant about us, Dabawenyos (syempre apil gyud ko kay Dabawenyo man kong dako) is that at Election times, we know how to choose the best leaders in our city. We understand the needs, and we translate our vision into responsible casting of ballots by writing the names of those who could carry out the task properly. We vote for credibility and not for money.

For three consecutive terms, our choice to put Rodrigo Duterte in the proud City Hall of Davao is more than just our best resolution, it is the perfect option and we draw a very good portrait of history in this part of the country.

In the May 2010 elections, and since Rody ‘Digong’ Duterte has completed his three terms, the father bequeathed this responsibility to the daughter in the person of ‘Inday’ Sara. Equally tough and strong leader as manifested in her performance as the vice mayor of Davao, Sara Duterte will carry on the program of government and the strict implementation of the laws to secure peace and prosperity in the city.  Sara has been very progressive in her approach of administration and like his father, she is too a no-nonsense official who does her job to the full service of the Dabawenyos.  The father and daughter tandem is unquestionably formidable then.

As the election time is moving swiftly, the opponents are trying to attack using campaign tactics shadowing traditional politics. The TRAPOS are once again in full force to offer empty promises.  But I am very convinced that the Dabawenyos are wise voters as they have been in the past. We would not allow any hypocrite politician to destroy the image of this beautiful city.  I don’t care on the Commission on Human Rights investigation on summary killings, neither I care about the shadowy Davao Death Squad, because what I know is that I feel very safe walking around anywhere in Davao than at any other place in the Philippines. Davao is my home and I am forever be a proud Dabawenyo.
