Scene: Poet and community organizer Nestor Pestelos is Rappler’s The Enterprise Mover awardee. As president of the Bohol Local Development Foundation, he launched the Bohol Quake Assistance Fund Drive to help families who were homeless by the strong earthquake. "This award will inspire our young volunteers and fieldworkers to work harder to expand our current work," he told Rappler after accepting the award on Sept 26 at the World Resorts Manila. The Move Awards is Rappler’s first effort to celebrate those who actively campaign and move for social change.
Barely eight days to the deadline of COC (Certificate Of Candidacy) this month, Tessie Labunog-Sumampong is pestered with the question…is she really running for councilor of Loboc?
“I’m not sure,” Tessie told VRS.
She was offered to run for councilor in the past elections, confessed Tessie, “but I still have to think. Basically, ’m not interested. I’m not into politics.”

Tisay is not giving any last word to run for councilor in Loboc.
Neither is Tessie saying if her hubby Libby will run for councilor in 2016, but if he does, Tessie said that she will support him all the way.
She also said she is busy for Cuisina ni Tisay (inside the Chocolate Hills Adventure Park in Carmen town), which offers authentic Boholano cuisines.
In the meantime, Tessie said she doesn’t let herself be distracted by the 2016 to-do.
Meanwhile, amidst the noise about his being drafted or invited to run for Governor or Representative, Maribojoc Mayor Leoncio Evasco, Jr remains, believe it or not, un-flattered, unmoved and unaffected.
Now on his third and last term as Maribojoc mayor, Evasco has no ample time to decide whether to file his COC for a higher position.
“Mudagon ko governor sa Lion’s Club,” he said with a laugh.

Only time can tell.-LPU
Lower or higher position?
“Lower house,” he laughed again.
Only time can tell.
