GRACE POE ON DOTr USEC. CHAVEZ’S RESIGNATION

I respect Usec. Cesar Chavez for tendering his resignation in the light of the MRT problems. I admire his sense of delicadeza although I doubt that that is the only reason that prompted him to resign. He seemed to be one of the DOTr officials who was determined to fully address all the issues plaguing the MRT. I recall he was instrumental in unearthing the persons involved in anomalies that caused these issues.

However, it is time to evaluate the actions and the leadership of the DOTr as a whole in connection with how issues hounding the MRT have been addressed. These issues should be properly and expeditiously resolved despite Usec. Chavez's resignation and especially considering the commuting horrors our people have to go through everyday.

I hope the President finds someone able and willing to take up the cudgels the Usec. left behind in order to finally ensure the safety and convenience of the riding public.
