Rest assured that we are working on a system to ensure that volunteers will be accommodated whenever they visit
My impression is that the seemingly chaotic volunteer networks in the VP Leni campaign have their equivalent of neurons passing messages in all directions.
The fatal passivity of the 2016 campaign and the chaos of 2019 are past I think – another example of a quick reaction that spread around is this:
Hi Joey! Sorry about this. The HQ is understaffed and we are looking for an HQ manager who will be the one to coordinate and entertain volunteers who want to visit.
Most of the flak thrown at her she does not deserve. But she does not absorb them all some are shrugged.
, the nimbleness/ agility of Leni’s team in the face of mistakes that www.rksloans.com/title-loans-ok no doubt happened and will happen, combined with the appropriate corrective response will no doubt help in the campaign. Related or key to this is the genuine (volunteering) effort to help the Team, compared to just being employed to do a job – such as lying – that is not to the employees liking but paid to do.
This is a cruel world we live in
I think it was Bayanihan E-Konsulta, part of her pandemic response that had to close for a weekend being (temporarily) overwhelmed. Seems it was quickly remedied and back.
Meanwhile she is in Baguio after some days in Iloilo and Maasin which came after her days in Bikol which were preceded by some Tagalog areas.. All the while with follow up on projects also part of the Tour not just barnstorming.
Chaos sometimes help because people are always up to their toes. They’re aware of what’s going on. The risk is, there could be elements within or without the campaign who are out to sabotage the candidate. Errors or mistakes within the campaign, deliberate or not, are easy to correct. But if it’s external, you’re going to have a problem. Members of the Robredo or Marcos or the others must remember, this is the time or season for psywar operatives.
Yes. As the late Edgar Lores once said in an article here at TSOH, Philippine politics can be “wayang kulit” – the Indonesian shadow puppet game. Lots of hidden agendas.
BTW someone tried to course an anonymous article for this blog via a contact of mine who gave it to me. I found the article weird and asked my contact the affiliation of the anonymous writer. Turned out it was a Bong Go supporter tilting toward VP Leni (!) (?).
The Robredo volunteer groups are pretty alert though and share warnings like a neighborhood on the alert for thieves and pickpockets, this I happen to know. Possibly BBM groups are on the alert for tarps that warn against thieves:
Fiesta democracy, as Richard Heydarian called it, is alive and well with all good and bad that happens at fiestas.
Some Robredo supporters may not be always nice but then again Philippine politics is known to be a “blood sport” as Manolo Quezon has said
Bernabe (twitter) “The HQ is UNDERSTAFFED and we are looking for an HQ manager…” -– Not a good response from a staff of a candidate who projects popularity, formidability and strength going to an elections contest. ‘Understaffed’? With all those campaign materials (videos, pictures, etc.) going around, expressions of support from individuals and volunteer groups, and running under a party with political war machine? C’mon, man! You are giving air of confidence to your rival by doing that. ??
The LP doesn’t have the war machine it might have had once, and the volunteer center only recently ramped up in Manila while another opened in Iloilo. Most campaign material is done by volunteer groups not centrally, unlike BBM. VP Leni by far does not have the resources of Marcos Jr., she does not even have the resources Mar Roxas or Pnoy had – let us remember that in Philippine politics you have to shoulder a lot alone.
