Teodoro leans on experience to bridge public, private sectors

Senatorial candidate Gilbert (GIBO) Teodoro is leaning on his experience in both public and private sectors to be of better service to Filipinos as he vies for a seat in the Senate.

“Twelve years akong nasa private sector. Alam ko ang dinaranas, hindi lang ng malalaking negosyo kundi ang micro (enterprises) hanggang sa consumer,” the Former Defense Secretary said. “Galing din po ako sa gobyerno. Nakatikim din ako na gumawa at magbigay ng mga batas at regulasyon. Nakatikim din akong [maging] tagasunod o taga-comply sa mga batas.”

Teodoro was seated in the Lower House as a representative for the first district of Tarlac during the Estrada administration. He was then appointed as the Secretary of the Department of National Defense – the youngest to hold the position at age 43 – during the Arroyo administration.

After serving the government, the 1989 Bar Topnotcher served as Chairman and director to various companies in the past 12 years, among these in the sectors of banking, mining, and energy.

With his vast experience in both public and private sectors, Teodoro vows to bridge the citizens and the government once seated in the Senate.

“Malapit ang paningin at tenga natin sa mga sitwasyon ng ating mga kababayan. Tayo po ang magiging tulay ng pribadong sektor [at ng pamahalaan]. Ito ang maibibigay natin sa ating mga kababayan upang sa ganoon, lahat tayo ay umangat,” Gibo Teodoro said.
