The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of R. T. Lim, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines

In the midst of strong clamor of the residents of Surabay with the persistent leadership of Mr. Inocentes Tayo and Mr. Marcelo Veruasa (all deceased) thru the representation of the late Congressman Vinceso Sagun, the former President Diosdado Macapagal issued an Executive Order No. 178 series of 1965, creating Barrio Surabay and 14 other Barrios into a regular municipality which was originally known as the Municipality of Sagun. However, the dreams and sincere desire of the residents of these barangays remained in the heart and minds of its people. While waiting for the right leader to continue the struggle for the recognition of the defunct municipality, the people were scouting. So that in the early part of 1980, Mr. Romeo A. Billote came about. A courageous leader as he is, unified the leaders from 14 barrios and led them towards the realization of their goals and aspirations to create the same areas into a regular municipality.

With the cooperation and assistance of the late Mr. Benjamin Escobar; former District Supervisor, late Mr. Rogelio Padilla, Mr. Rogelio Gomez, Mr. Fiorellio Cataluña and some professionals in the place, Mr. Romeo A. Billote had successfully gathered and accomplished all the necessary documents for the purpose and had submitted the same to the Office of the President. With the representation of the former Assemblyman Ulpiano Ramas and Honorable Vicente Cerilles of Zamboanga del Sur, a bill was filed before the Interim Batasang Pambansa Bilang 183 and was approved by His Late Excellency President Ferdinand E. Marcos on March 16, 1982; thus, Barangay Surabay with the 14 other barangays became a regular municipality which was then duly ratified in a plebiscite conducted the Commission on Election on May 17, 1982.

The municipality had started to function as a Local Government Unit last February 1, 1983 with the appointment of Municipal Mayor Romeo A. Billote, together with his Municipal Vice-Mayor Angel C. Tagalicod, Jr. and with the members of the Sangguniang Bayan Hon. Condrado Cahilig, Hon. Rogelio Padilla, Hon. Conrado Estrella, Hon. Gregorio Gayomali, Hon. Shariff Atin Alsree, Hon. Zoilo Opaon, Hon. Jose Antiquera, Hon. Wildredo Deita as the PKKE President and Hon. Gonzalo Lerio as the ABC President. The formal inauguration of this Municipality was held on the 12th day March 1983. Since then, the 12th day of March is observed as its Foundation Day known as the Araw ng Roseller T. Lim.

Due to the Snap Election on February 7, 1986 coupled with the EDSA Revolution or People’s Power on February 25, 1986, the aforementioned appointed Local Municipal Officials were lawfully relieved. As a result, last April 1986 to November 1987, the municipality of Roseller T. Lim was placed under the administration of appointed OIC Municipal Mayor Camilo Bicoy; OIC Municipal Vice Mayor Beltran Capitanea and Sangguniang Bayan Members Hon. Danilo J. Pidoena; Evelyn Quinal; Rodolfo Guzman; Bernardo Garcia; Amado Veradio; Remegio Magalso; Fernando Mudai; Kahaludin Amiludin; Wilfredo Deita as the PKKB President and Rodolfo Pacaña as the ABC President.

In the advent of the first scheduled Local Elections after the EDSA Revolution, which was then set on January 18, 1988; the aforementioned appointed OIC Local Officials were lawfully relieved. As a result, from December 1987 to February 1, 1988, the Municipality of Roseller T. Lim was placed under the transitory administration of the appointed OIC Municipal Mayor Jocelyn A. Piodena; OIC Municipal Vice Mayor Argeo V. Magalso with the Sangguniang Bayan Members OIC Juanito Rojas; OIC Letecia Cabato; OIC Jose Guzman; OIC Reynaldo Inso; OIC Cecilia L. Barber; OIC Jovito Francisco; OIC Enriqueta B. Mundo; OIC Marilou Brito; Hon. Wilfredo Deita as the PKSB President and Hon. Rodolfo Pacaña as the ABC President.

The First Local Elections in R.T. Lim was on January 18 1988, thereafter, the Officially declared elected municipal officials were : Mayor Romeo A. Billote; Vice Mayor Danilo J. Piodena and the Eight (8) Sangguniang Bayan Members elected at large: Hon. Paciencia Caballero; Hon. Genofre A. Torres; Hon. Edsel Loreno; Hon. Erlinda Lozano; Hon Pataleon T. Endong; Hon. Rodolfo Guzman; Hon Fernando Mudai; Hon. and Wilson Sumicad. Hon. Wilfredo Deita was the PKKB President and Hon. Reinario Cabrera the ABC President.

After the Synchronized Local and National Elections on May 11, 1992, effective June 1, 1992 to June 30, 1995, the Local Administration of Roseller T. Lim was under the leadership of re-elected Municipal Mayor Romeo A. Billote; Vice-Mayor (Elect) Wilson Sumicad, SB Members (Elect) Edna Cenas, Glecerio Calipayan, Walter Palma, Amalia Aparece, Elizabeth Bolante; and, re-elected SB Members Erlinda Lozano, Pantaleon T. Endong, Paciencia Caballero, respectively. Hon. Reinario Cabrera was the ABC President and Hon. Jovito Francisco III was the PPSK President.

Unfortunately, on the May 11. 1995, synchronized Local & National Elections, Hon Municipal Mayor Romeo A. Billote lost his mayoral position to the Newly Elected Mayor Danilo J. Piodena with the new set of Municipal Officals; RE: Municipal Vice Mayor Edna Cenas with newly elected SB Members Hon. Marjorie Gonzales, Elias Cagas, Reinario Cabrera, Aurelia Cababat, Eriberto Bayona, Alona Inso and the re-elected SB Members Paciencia Caballero and Erlinda Lozano. Hon. Lydia Paid was the ABC President while Hon. Jovito Francisco III was retained as the PKSK President.

However, after one political term of office, Hon. Mayor Romeo A. Billote regained his leadership as the Municipal Mayor. This time the other municipal officials were: Vice Mayor Wilson R. Sumicad, SB Members Marjorie B. Gonzales, Aurelia P. Cababat, Eriberto N. Bayona, Reinario D. Cabrera, Alona D. Inso, Fidel Dairo, Brigida Caballero and Elizabeth S. Bolante. Hon. Crisologo E. Opaon replaced Hon. Lydia Paid as the ABC President and Hon. Jonathan A. Piodena replaced Hon. Jovito Francisco III as the PPSK President.

In May, 2001 Elections, Hon. Danilo J. Piodena despite of his defeat in the 1998 election was able to proved that he had the aces to regain the mayor position that he lost to Mayor Billote in 1998. Mayor Danilo J. Piodena once again regained his fresh mandate with Wilson Sumicad as his Vice Mayor together with Sangguniang Bayan members: Hon Edna B. Cenas, Hon Gertrudes G Borres, Hon Aurelia P. Cababat, Hon Alona D. Inso, Hon Elizabeth S. Bolante, Hon Marjorie B. Gonzalez, Hon Fidel A. Dairo, and Hon Edna Sumicad. Hon Crisologo E. Opaon as ABC President and Hon Jeffreson R. Gonzalo replaced Hon Jonathan A. Piodena as the PPSK President.

In May 2004 Election, Hon Danilo J. Piodena did it again with a vast margin of votes garnered against his former political opponent who died more than a month after the poll. He continued to administer the municipality for his second term together with Vice-Mayor Wilson R. Sumicad who was reelected for his last and final term as the vice mayor with the SB Members Hon Edna B. Cenas, Hon Noli C. Capri, Hon Syril Subibi, Hon Michael Piodena, Hon Danilo A. Carreon, Hon Inocencio P. Cubio, Hon Lucio d. Cababat and Hon Edna B. Sumicad with Hon Crisologo E. Opaon and Jefferson R. Gonzalo as the ABC President and PPSK President respectively. .

On May 2007 Mayor Danilo J. Piodena bids his last and final term as mayor of the town who was opposed by his former running mate, Vice Mayor Wilson R. Sumicad. Mayor Piodena succeeded to topple down his political adversary overwhelmingly by garnering votes more than double against his opponent. He will be serving his last term with Hon Edna B. Cenas as his Vice Mayor and the Sangguniang Bayan Members namely Hon Noli C. Capri, Hon Michael A. Piodena, Hon Syril P. Subibi, Hon Alona D. Inso, Hon Inocencio P. Cubio, Hon Nonito M. Ordoyo, Hon Rico R. Calipayan and Hon Lucio D. Cababat. Late this year barangay election was held and Hon Benhajar E Tandih took hold the ABC Presidency with a controversial draw match with his opponent and Hon Reina Grace A. Piodena took over the PPSK Presidency unopposed.

Sometime in 2008, Vice Mayor Edna B. Cenas left for her travel in the U.S. however, she did not return back to the country as expected instead, she confirmed to the local leadership that she will totally relinquish her Vice Mayorship to the 1st SB Member Hon. Noli C. Capri who served as Vice Mayor for a short time as he unfortunately met a vehicular accident that caused his death. The unexpired term of the Vice Mayor was fully completed by the 2nd ranking SB Member Hon. Michael A. Piodena.

During the May, 2010 National and Local Elections, Hon. Michael A. Piodena was endorsed by the out-going Mayor Danilo J. Piodena as the Candidate for Mayor with Hon. Inocencio P. Cubio his running mate for Vice Mayor under the newly organized political party the Alliance of Parties for Progress (APP) headed by the Jalosjoses who will be challenging the Political Leadership of the Hofers both in the Congressional and Provincial level. It was on this political exercise that the APP successfully toppled down the candidates of the incumbent administration party from the Congressional and Provincial down to the Municipal Levels in the entire province of Zamboanga Sibugay. It was on this political exercise that there was a bloody incident that happened in this municipality that caused the loss of three (3) lives and numbers of wounded individuals when the political supporters of Hon. Michael A. Piodena’s political opponent for the Mayoralty seat, Mr. Rogelio A. Gomez (a retired School Superintendent) which incident is still under investigation at this moment.

Ultimately, after the 2010 Elections Hon. Michael A. Piodena overwhelmingly won the Mayoralty seat with Hon. Inocencio P. Cubio as his Vice Mayor where out of the eight (8) SB Members candidates under the political group of Mayor Michael A. Piodena, two (2) unfortunately did not make it (Mr. Reinario D. Cabrera and Mrs. Elizabeth S. Bolante). The six (6) SB Members under the Piodena political group who successfully won were Hon. Rico R. Calipayan, Hon. Danilo J. Piodena, (the former Mayor), Hon. Alona D. Inso, Hon. Benz Aldrick Tandih (the son of the incumbent ABC Provincial President), Hon. Felizardo G. Cainglet and Hon. Syril P. Subibi (on his last term); and from the opposing party, Hon. Lucio D. Cababat (also on last term) and Hon. Fiorello I. Cataluña completed the set for the Eight (8) Regular Members of the Sanggunian.

Later in 2010, after the Barangay and Sanggunian Kabataan Elections, Hon. Benhajar E. Tandih regain his seat as ABC President of the Municipality, however, his elections to the Presidency of the Panlalawigan Liga ng mga Barangay gave to the ABC Vice President Hon. Ricarte J. Piodena the privilege to succeed him as the Acting ABC President and Ex-Officio SB Member with Hon. Pamela Kristina M. Cubio as PPSK President/Ex-Officio SB Member.

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials


This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress. Not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible. Stop blaming others.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

  • Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of Islam is financed by the Philippine government. Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
