If there is one city local official who knows how to enjoy the good life, it is Zamboanga City District-2 Councilor VP Elago. He celebrates his personal life with good taste, and this is also evident even in his political career. He wants people of Zamboanga to experience the good life too. And to achieve this, his programs are concentrated more in developing livelihood and by boosting the local tourism industry among others. By doing this, I believe it can afford more people to live better lives.

Councilor VP is a very transparent person too. He has a lot of friends in his personal Facebook accounts even those whom he has not met personally. For this reason, he made his FB account not just work-related but more of a platform to correspond and mingle. From legislative work to oversight functions, social events, and even parties are shared in his various FB accounts. He strongly believes in visibility and interactions. He uses this also as a venue to inform and to learn what people think about situations and issues.

He is a good listener and doer definitely. Councilor VP believes that "the government is of the people, for the people and by the people.” “It is only when we listen that we get to know how people feel and how they want to be served,” he said. He personally addresses promptly all concerns and issues being thrown at him.

That’s why when he celebrated his birthday last June 11 (Wednesday); I made it a point not to miss it. It’s a good party that serves sumptuous food prepared by chefs of Don Vicente Restaurante Latino. Add to it music, entertainment, and wine, who wouldn’t enjoy his party.
Belated happy birthday, Councilor VP!
