ROSALES-The Vice Mayor of this municipality showed his solidarity with the people of the transport sector, small vendors and commuters as he marched with them on the issue of providing convenient transportation for the public and livelihood for the marginalized sectors.

Rosales Vice Mayor Dominador “Jojo” Pajela, Jr. said that transportation is a basic factor in the development of a community.

“The easy access to transportation for everybody should be a primary consideration in the application of laws in the municipality of Rosales ,” Pajela said. “We have to adapt to changing conditions in this beloved place of ours.”

The ordinance creating the Carmen Central Transport Terminal must be adjusted to provide convenience to commuters and revive the businesses along the Carmen area citing that traffic is an indicator of commercial activity, he said.

The creation of additional loading and unloading areas along Carmen will benefit not only the residents of Rosales but also those who intend to do business here, he added.

“We are trying to give back to the small street vendors the opportunity to earn a living,” Pajela said. “The number vendors of tupig, for example, have substantially decreased after the implementation of the Central Terminal and the designation of very limited unloading areas along Carmen.”

Pajela said that he is no stranger in espousing the interest of the poor and marginalized sectors of society.

In his school day, he admits that he has been part of the progressive movement that was calling for social change.

“Noong estudyante po ako, pentel pen lang at manila paper…nasasabi ko na ang gusto ko,” Pajela said. “Nakikiisa po ako sa ating mga street vendors, commuters at mga nasa transport sector sa kanilang kahilingan na magkaroon ng pagbabago dito.”

As a medical practitioner, he daily comes face to face with poor people who need medical attention that is why he is proposing the construction of a charity community hospital.

In the same manner, as a public servant, Pajela focuses his priorities in opening opportunities for the poor to have better lives.
