We, democracy and freedom-loving Filipinos, fully stand by Isabela Governor Grace Padaca who we believe is the legitimate winner of the 2007 gubernatorial elections in the said province amid an unfair ruling by the Commission on Elections Second Division composed of Commissioners Nicodemo Ferrer, Lucenito Tagle and Elias Yusoph.

As fellow Filipinos, we believe that this resolution to unseat Governor Padaca in favor of former Governor Benjamin Dy is highly questionable and the evidence raised forth against Padaca raises significant doubt as to the validity of Dy’s claims of electoral fraud resulting to his loss.

The May 2007 elections saw Governor Padaca win by 17,007 votes over Benjamin Dy. Had Governor Padaca used dishonest means, this kind of margin will be next to impossible to pull off given that Padaca’s resources are scant and her political machinery nonexistent. If there is a candidate with a vast campaign fund and an organized machinery, it would most certainly be the Dy family who have been in power in Isabela for over forty years, until Padaca defeated them in the 2004 elections.

Governor Padaca has shown integrity as the highest government official of the province, not to mention efficiency and strong political will, all without dubious, illegal transactions. Her campaign against illegal logging in the Sierra Madre mountains has so far proven successful especially after Typhoon Pepeng hit Northern Luzon late this year. Her other programs have greatly benefited the people of Isabela, including health, education, good governance and electoral reforms.

In the past five and a half years that Governor Padaca has served as the local chief executive of Isabela, she has encountered numerous unnecessary problems, among them flagrant non-cooperation by some government offices with the provincial government leading to conflicts. These particular offices are not known to support Governor Padaca; however that does not give them an excuse to disregard common courtesy and protocol and fulfill their duties as required by law.

This should not be the case for any government official. Padaca won in 2007 via a clean and honest election and deserves to be treated as such. The Comelec’s resolution ousting Padaca is not the first attempt of her opponents at regaining control of Isabela. However, the people of Isabela themselves have shown that they have chosen Padaca to govern them for another term, and they, along with the rest of the Filipinos who believe in her and in justice, will not rest until the truth prevails.

We call on all supporters of Governor Padaca as well as Filipinos who believe in good governance to fight against corruption and injustice being done to a good Filipino leader. We believe that this issue is not confined solely to the borders of Isabela, but concerns all Filipinos. We cannot let this happen in Isabela inasmuch as we refuse to let it happen in our own provinces, cities, and municipalities. The fight here is between right and wrong, between good governance and corruption, between truth and falsehood. If we let this injustice happen, we will continue to be at the mercy of a corrupt system that seeks to destroy democratic institutions which were established to serve the needs of the people, not the interests of a selfish few. As citizens of the Philippines, we have the duty to preserve the integrity of our democratic institutions and hold accountable officials who fail to uphold the truth.

Let us not allow evil to triumph and together let us take a stand for the truth, for justice, and for good governance. The fight of Isabela is a fight of the entire Philippines.

    Get to know Grace Padaca thru her mentor, Atty. Alben Burkley. He was also one of the people who orchestrated Padaca’s Gubernatorial candidacy during the 2004 elections. This was his interview, last day of the campaign (Part 1 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnoY1Mt9bE4; Part 2 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBU0Ttk0Mj8)

    Edwin Asis: Atty Burkley, Nakikita Namin Ang Kagustuhan Ninyong Magkaroon Ng Pagbabago Sa Ating Lalawwigan Ng Isabela Pero Sa Ngayon Nakikita Niyo Po Na Hindi Nasusunod Ito, Ano Po Ang Masasabi Ninyo Sa Kasalukuyang Sitwasyon Sa Lalawigan Ng Isabela Na Si Gov. Grace Padaca Ang Namumuno Dito?

    Atty. Burkley: Matagal Ng May Mga Agam-agam Ako At Gusto Ko Ng Magasalita Pero Pinalampas Ko Sa Kadahilanang Sana Po Ay Magkaroon Siya Ng Konsensiya Na Harapin Ang Katotohanan Kaya Kailangan Ang Pagbabago. Kung Maaalala Ninyo Noong 2004 Sinamahan Ko Siya, Ginabayan At Naglibot, Nilapitan Ko Ang Mga Kaibigan Ko Na Dati Kong Kasamahan Sa Kaparian At Hindi Naman Maikakaila Na Halos Lahat Kasama Si Bishop Utleg, Nagsama-sama Na Ipagtanggol Ang Kanyang Ipinaglaban Kung Kaya’t Nuong Siya Ay Nanalo At Sa Kanyang Inaugural Speech Nasa Akin Pa Ang Kopya Edwin Eh. Pagkatapos Niyang Pasalamatan Ang Kanyang Mga Magulang Di Ako Ang Sumunod Na Kanyang Pinalsalamatan Sa Kadahilanang Wala Naman Akong Hininging Kapalit Ako Ay Kanyang Binigyan Ng Choice To Offer Na Maging Provincial Administrator, Sabi Ko I Have Done My Part, Babalik Na Ako Sa Manila At Sana Ituloy Mo Ang Ating Ipinaglaban. Huwag Mo Kaming I Disappoint, Nangako Siya At Sinabing, Manong Huwag Kang Mag Alala Pero Mas Mabuti Sana Kung Kasama Kita At Sinabi Ko Na Hindi Grace Babalik Na Ako Sa Aking Trabaho Nadoon Ang Pamilya Ko At Sa Aking Paniniwala Nagawa Ko Na Ang Dapat Kong Gawin.
    Noong 2004 Andito Na Naman Ang Aking Diary Edwin, October Bago Pa Lang Siyang Governor Isa Ako Sa Mga Inanyayahan Sa Pagdiriwang Ng Isabela Day Na Ginawa Sa Intramuris, Manila Sa Wow Philippines At Ipinakilala Ako Sa Yumaong Presidenteng Cory Aquino At Sinabi Niya Maam, Meet My Mentor, Atty. Burkley. Nagulat Ako, Wow!!!! At Sinabi Ko Im Please To Meet You Madame President. Your Integrity And Honesty Has Been My Inspiration. In 1986 I Was One Of The Namfrel Volunteer To Protect The Sanctity Of The Ballot.
    Sometimes In 2008, Sa Pagdiriwang Ng Teachers Day Maraming Celebrities Ang Tinanong Kung Sino Ang Teacher O Guro Na Nakapagbigay Ng Impluwensiya O Impact On Their Lives…. Hindi Maikakaila Na On The Paper And On Record Sa Manila Bulletin Ang Sagot Ni Grace Padaca Among Those Celebrities Interviewed, My Religion Teacher In High School Alben Burkley…. At Natatandaan Pa Niya Na 1 Time Sa Library Ng Olpi High School Nandoon Sya At Nagbabasa, Nakita Ko Ang Kanya Binabasa How To Get Rich Quickly, Sabi Ko Bakit Ganyan Ang Binabasa Mo, Bakit Hindi Mo Basahin Ang Mga Librong Ito….. Hope For The Flowers,the Greatest Salesman Ni Og Mandino, The Little Prince, Kasi Ang Mga Librong Ito Ang Mga Aklat Na Ito Ang Matututunan Mo Ay Mga Leksiyon Ng Values, Integrity, Honesty, Commitment & Trust At Hindi Daw Niya Nakalimutan Ang Mga Ito….

    Nitong Mga Nakaraang Araw, Pagumuuwi Ako Dito Sa Isabela May Mga Natatanggap Akong Mga Balita.. Sa Aking Pag Uwi Minsan Sa Isabela May Mga Nakakarating Sa Aking Balita Came From A Very Reliable Sources Na And Confirm Sources From The Very Mouth Of The Clergy Who Did Support Sa Kanya Na Very Disappointed Sa Kanya Dahil Pag Ang Provincial Commander Na Nagtotolerate Ng Jueteng At Kakampi Eh Okay Lang Pero Pag Ang Provincial Commander Eh Laban Sa Mga Tauhan Nya Eh Gusto Nyang Patalsikin O Palitan . Pinalampas Ko Ang Mga Iyan, May Mga Nababalitaan Din Tayo Na Tinotolerate Nya At Kinukunsinti Dahil Sa Kanyang Mga Pananahimik At Pangaabuso Ng Kakampi Nyang Mga Mayor. Ang Mga Ito Ang Dapat Na Dumaan Sa Proseso Ng Hustisya Pero Dahil Sa Koneksiyon Ay Walang Nangyayari Bagkos Ay Nakukunsinti At Yung Mga Kalaban Sa Politika Sila Yung Mga Tinitira At Kinakasuhan. Ganunpaman, Binibigyan Ko Pa Din Sya Ng Mga Pagkakataon, Kinakausap Ko Yung Mga Malalapit Sa Kanya At Kinakausap Ko Din Siya. Galit Na Galit Siya Noon Sa Mga Pamamaraan Ng Mga Kakampi Nya. Ang Sabi Nya At Pangako Nya, 1 Lang Ang Kanyang Amo, Ang Apo Isabelino, Pero Nitong Nga Nagdaang Araw, Lalo Na Itong Nangyari Sa Gamu, Eh Dun Ko Na Napatunayan Na 2 Lang Ang Amo Niya Hindi Totoo Na Apo Isabelino Lang Ang Kanyang Amo, Kundi 2 Lang Ang Ginigiliw Nyang Amo, Si Edwin Uy At Si Ando Cumigad. Hindi Totoo Na Apo Isabelino Ang Amo Nya.
