Plaza Rizal, Naga City
18 August 2013
An exhibit of never-before-seen pictures of the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo together with his family and as mayor of Naga City had been open for public viewing at the Plaza Rizal in Naga City.
The mini exhibit showcases the tight-knit family relations of Sec. Jesse as well as how he led a simple life as public official and exemplified the ‘Tsinelas leadership’ he became known for. Famous quotes by him are reflective of the kind of leadership he had exemplified.
“Hindi na sapat na tayo ay matino lamang. Hindi rin sapat na tayo ay mahusay lamang. Hindi lahat ng matino ay mahusay at lalo namang hindi lahat ng mahusay ay matalino. Ang dapat ay matino at mahusay upang karapat dapat tayong pagkatiwalaan ng pera ng bayan,” he was quoted saying while serving as DILG secretary.
The exhibit will be open for a week following his death anniversary.
