  4. Hello Bulan Observer 2010,

    Yes, i am one of them. Thanks for this corner.
    It can help OFW’s and other people abroad who will wish to update what is happening in our beloved TOWN BULAN.


    • Sandigan Bayan convicts Cong. Jose Guyala Solis of Bulan of 6-10 years in prison for graft and falsification. Read Philippine Daily Inquirer, page A11, March 4, 2010 issue.


    Thanks Yumi for calling our attention to this case. It’s a must-know development for all Bulan Observers.

    Is this the end of the Bulan Airport or its proper beginning?

    This is the logical conclusion of Jose Soli’s greedy behavior and I’m proud this time of the Philippine anti-graft court Sandiganbayan for their performance and public service.

    All public officials guilty of such cimes must be sent to jail. May this year 2010 be a year for justice in Bulan and the whole Philippines!

    In a country where the majority of the people are suffering from poverty, injustice and insult to their human freedom and dignity, there should be a zero-tolerance for crimes as graft and corruption and treason commited by public officials and politicians.

    The Sandiganbayan must be supported by the people of Bulan, of the Philippines by filing cases against local and national officials suspected of such crimes.

    The Filipino people, the people of Bulan deserve justice.

    Calling now the attention of all the people of Bulan to make known any crime committed by any public official.

    Crime is kept secret so long as the mouths of the people are kept shut.

    Open your eyes and your mouth when necessary and when it serves the common good.

    P1 pork barrel for each solon proposed

    By Lira Dalangin-Fernandez

    MANILA, Philippines — A member of the House of Representatives on Monday proposed a P1 allocation for each lawmaker’s pork barrel or Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) to ensure that the fund would not be used for the 2010 election campaign.

    The amount originally allotted to congressmen and senators as their PDAF in the 2010 budget proposal by Malacanang could be re-channeled to meet the shortages in teacher positions, classroom, textbooks, chairs, and laboratories in public school, Representative Teddy Casino said at the minority’s weekly news conference.

    Casino’s proposal directly runs counter with the earlier proposal of Sorsogon Representative Jose Solis to increase the PDAF of each lawmaker by P30 million.

    Each congressman receives P70 million and each senator gets P200 million under the current budget.

    Casino said increasing lawmakers’ pork barrel allocation increases the risk of government money being spent for the 2010 elections.

    He said lawmakers can instead propose projects under line items of departments under the proposed budget.

    “The threat of one-peso budget has always been used by Congress to get what it wants from an agency. Perhaps it is time congressmen get a taste of their own medicine,” he said.

    “Let’s allocate one peso for the pork barrel and let the various nominated projects of congressmen undergo line item budgeting and the public scrutiny it deserves,” he added.

  6. Hi!!There thanks for sharing the list of candidate of our hometown…Keep update…
