The ABCs of Councilor Laviña

I am Councilor Peter Tiu Laviña of Davao City, Philippines.

I am a journalist, a political activist, and an elected City Councilor.

Starting this blog was long overdue. Two years ago when I had a staff who was a webmaster, I had my own website. When he resigned for greener pasture, I was left with no choice but to close the site because I was not technically capable to run it.

Thanks to a hand-on workshop on blogging and podcasting hosted by the
Friedrich Naumann Foundation, I now learned how to blog.

Here are my ABCs:

Activities - A list of my activities as a City Councilor, political activist and member of the mass media;

Beliefs - My core values, my principles, my beliefs, my stand on issues;

Campaigns - My personal advocacies as an elected public official, as a Davaoeno, as a political activist and as a media person.

My advocacies are wide and varied:

P - participatory governance
E - economic development
T - trade and tourism promotion
E - environment
R - reengineering the local bureaucracy

T - transportation
I - investment incentives
U - universal human rights

L - livelihood programs
A - alternative energy
V - values formation
I - international solidarity
N - new politics
A - advancement of science & technology

In future postings, you will learn more of my ABCs!
