Hon. Ronnel C. Rivera

Accountability and transparency is more than a mere political rhetoric. Political will is an action not just a political slogan. My conviction as a public servant remains unperturbed despite political challenges. I endured and persisted in learning what it takes to be a part of the policy-making body of this city and to create better visions for the continuous development of General Santos City and comprehensive social services to its constituents.

I remain in my desire to work harmoniously with my colleagues in the Sangguniang Panlungsod and proactively support the programs of the city. Because I believe, although we may have different views and opinions, we may belong to a different organization or affiliation; we have more something in common, and that is to uphold the public interest.
I am a neophyte in the field of politics but every day is learning. And knowledge comes in by and by to equip me on efficient and effective public service and good governance; because a good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers. My intention is merely to serve the people and to act upon public concerns. And as a public official, I would like to act to inspire others to dream more, to learn more, and to do more.

Sir, good day po. Hihingi po sana ako ng tulong para sa aking ama na si Alfredo Generales. Isa po siyang dialysis patient at kasalukuyan po siyang naka-confine ngayon sa St. Elizabeth Hospital.

Mayor, sana bigyan mo din ng attention yong mga Good contractor's sa Gensan Shipyard... nakakaawa po yong mga contractors na nagtatrabaho dun. Nakakaawa po talaga kasi pinapahirapan ng mga officials ng gensan shipyard and mga good contractors.. di nila inaapprovahan yong mga payments kahit matagal ng tapos yong trabaho at di nla sinusunod yong tariffa ng gensan shipyard.. pa iba iba ng patakaran. sana po bigyan nyo ng attention ang mga contractors.

gud pm,mayor. gusto ko lang po sanang malaman if our city waste management office have asked/coordinated with the people of congresswoman(now senator elect) cynthia villar, re: solid waste management of las pinas. successful po kasi at maraming natulungan na mahihirap na tao.ang maganda nito ang implementation ay nasa barangay level...solve pa ang problem sa basura may kita pa ang mga tao sa barangay.di kasi ito kaya gawin pag walang mag initiate na taga gobyerno, kasi medyo mahirap ang technical processes at dapat may lugar para sa makina..at pambili ng makina.we can have a pilot project muna sa ilang brgy.suggestion lang po..para makatulong sa city.
