Negrenses show love
for Negros with BARN


Negrenses have shown a lot of love for their province by working to develop good leadership and good governance through the convening of the Be A Robredo-Negros movement, Dr. Francisco Magno, director of the De La Salle University Jesse M. Robredo Institute of Governance, said Saturday.

Magno who was the guest speaker at the launching of the group at the USLS in Bacolod, said he sees that Negrenses are making efforts to mobilize civil society to encourage people participation.

He said that if BARN is replicated and organized in other provinces throughout the country, it means that people know what government officials do. He said that getting the support of the public is important to have good governance and leadership.

The DSLU Jesse M. Robredo Institute of Governance has also partnered with St. Paul Philippines-Tuguegarao, Silliman University, University of San Carlos, Bicol State University, and Mindanao State University in developing knowledge partnerships with the civil society organizations and local government units.

Agnes Hechanova, convener of BARN, said they will host the forum with Alexander Lacson on Nov. 26 at the Redemptorist Church. She said BARN is their tribute to Robredo who stood for servant leadership.*LTG
