Members of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) are pushing for Luis “Chavit” Singson, LMP National President, to run for a Senate seat in the 2022 elections.
During the recent series of LMP Regional Planning meetings, municipal mayors wanted to catapult to the national scene one of their own to represent them.
As a local governance stalwart and champion of local autonomy and decentralization, Chavit Singson is expected to rally the needs and concerns of local government units in the national policy decision-making process.
Municipal mayors across political parties are trying to convince Narvacan, Ilocos Sur Mayor Chavit Singson to be the advocate of local governance in the Senate of the Philippines.
As LMP National President, he introduced programs and initiatives that benefited members and pushed for policy reforms affecting local government units throughout the country.
As an incumbent local chief executive and former National President of the Philippine Councilors League, Chavit is aware of what’s happening at the grassroots level.
The LMP describes Chavit as an experienced leader – effective, compassionate, encompassing and quick-to-respond – traits he manifested during the pandemic.
Municipal mayors said this is the kind of leadership they want the nation to experience.
They believes his representation in national legislation will bring more benefits to the LGUs.
In fervently appealing to Mayor Singson to run for Senator in 2022, they expressed their collective support for the man who will champion local governance, autonomy and decentralization towards countryside development.
