GORDON, MOST QUALIFIED TO LEAD foreign execs reveal

Foreign businessmen and diplomats assigned in the country think that Richard Gordon would be the best person to run the country in the next 6 years, according to a mock poll conducted at the Wallace Business Forum held at the Makati Shang-rila Hotel last March 18, 2010.

In the said pseudo-elections, 35 executives of multinational companies and members of diplomatic community were asked to rank the presidential candidates and Gordon has been identified as the one that “can do the best job.”

Sen. Richard Gordon, former mayor of Olongapo City who lobbied for the creation of the Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ) when the Americans left the Subic Bay Naval Base in 1992 was first chairman and administrator of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA). He was the one who convinced multinational and local corporations to place their million dollar worth of investments in what used to be the remnants of a former military base.

“Because of his vision and credibility, Richard Gordon was able to attract foreign investors at Subic Bay. When the Americans left in 1992, we thought that was it because primarily, the livelihood and employment of Olongapeños and residents from neighboring towns used to depend on the U. S. Navy,” Damian delos Santos, 65, reminisced. “But Dick Gordon led us volunteers in protecting and preserving the Subic Naval Base area and thru his headship, foreign investors came in and what’s left of the former military bases was transformed into a bustling economic hub of today, the Subic Bay Freeport Zone,” delos Santos added.

“Only a leader of his caliber and credibility, can convince foreign businesses to invest in just a vision,” Olongapo City Councilor Edwin Piano, former Subic Bay volunteer and employee, said. “But he achieved the almost impossible and I am certain that he can do just as well as president of the country. From his track record, I believe him when he says that he can bring progress and transform Mindanao because he did it here in Subic Bay, ” said Councilor Piano.

According to the editorial section of the People’s Journal, a national newspaper, “Richard Gordon is the most prepared-academically, administratively, pragmatically and, most importantly, diplomatically.” Traits that were apparently hard earned from experience and attributes that can place the Philippines to the league of developed countries in Asia. Trust the foreign business experts and diplomats to know what they are saying and it is up to Filipinos to take the hint.



  • Ewan nating kung kaelan ma figure out ng mga Voters ang credibility ni R.Gordon.

    Look like kung sino ang nasa newspaper headlines,tv ads at kanilang kababayan eh! doon sila.

    Dapat sa Voters bigyan sila ng challenging questions para magkaroon ng skill sa Analytical Thinking.
    Let's face it maraming poor, illiterate, gullible voters. It is a challenge to Gordon's low budget campaign to informed,educate this group. And time is of the essence.

  • Latest news to me! Christopher de Leon (the actor) is on politics too.
    Wow! pang ilan na ba siya na artista na politician na rin

    Its puzzles me sa mga pilipino Voters,kung bakit they put this group of people on public service to run their town/cities/provinces. Majority of Voters are clueless in checking out and figure out their candidates track records of accomplishments on public service. Basta ang kandidato ay guwapo,pa smile-smile, pa charming-charming,at medyo generous kunwari OK na yon....

  • Ito ang hurdle ni R.Gordon- mga "STaR Struck" Voters saka Media Biases.
    Media's agenda is to sell their products.And what sells' Is it not INTRIGUES, SCANDALS,gossips, CONTROVERSIES?. High t.v. Ratings are the result Forget about true facts,the meat and potatoes of journalism.The truth is, majority of us - THE VOTERS ON MAY 10. We are misinformed and less sophisticated in electing our official who suppose to represent us and fight for us once elected.

  • What R.Gordon opponent candidates cannot match are track records of Visual Images history.
    "Pictures says a million words" It is very powerful tool to convey a true message. Pictures do not "LIE" unless manipulated.Those dramatic action shots either on pinatubo,floodings,hostage scenario or capsized boat rescue were strong and powerful campaign tool for short attention span Voters. No other presidential candidates have these kind of Visual Images that portray the real Gordon helping the very Poor and the Victims of crisis and calamities. It shows he means what he says.. I know its a low budget campaign. But if he needs airtime so be it. Good Luck!
