Aside from Christmas Celebration, Fiesta, and other holidays, election is one of the anticipated event in the country. I think people are used to getting ready to know who among the usual public officials are making their moves to "serve the country".

With the rise of technology and perhaps the growth in awareness of all Filipino people it seems that candidates are in for thorough screening before this government officials to be take their oaths which is to serve the Filipino people.

Just recently, we witnessed in the news those individuals or parties who filed their Certificate of Candidacy or COC. There are some who were highlighted on the news but there are others who were on the sidelines.

After the filings of COC for the coming 2019 election, I managed to meet one of the Candidate for the Senatorial position. His name is Atty. Angelo De Alban, a lawyer and a professor in the University of Sto. Tomas.

According to Atty. Alban, he wanted to run for senator because he seeks to improve laws in the education, health, agriculture, and housing program.

He intends to serve the public consistent with his advocacies on bio-health, agriculture and education. He would be the voice of the ordinary people often neglected because of under representation. He intends to be their champion at a time when the Philippines is facing crisis, one after the other—a divided nation, a country threatened with terrorism, a high inflation rate and rising cost of living.

 Angelo’s dream is to unite all Filipinos under a promise of better tomorrow through an integrated education system without any corruption and unnecessary workload, a comprehensive health service available and affordable for everyone and a nationwide agriculture structure to ensure quality and quantity for the growing population.

Atty. Angelo is from a family of lawyers and teachers. His grandfather is a lawyer while his grandmother is a public school teacher. His father is also a lawyer and his mother, a former flight stewardess and purser with Philippine Airlines, is now a public school catechist. All his three other siblings and sister-in-law are teachers. 

Angelo graduated as the High School Student Council President at St. Mary's College of Meycauayan, Bulacan in 1998. He proceeded to attend the University of Santo Tomas for his Bachelor's Degree in Journalism , Law and Masters of Law. 

While studying in UST, he was a member of the chorale, varsity player for both basketball and football teams. At that time he stands 6'4 - now he stands at 6'6. He had his on-the-job training with The Manila Times. He was also a working scholar in UST and a part-time freelance ramp model during his college days. He also sold discount cards, writing articles for different magazines and rendering paralegal assistance to earn living.

He was a writer for The Varsitarian, the official student publication of UST. He had his law on-the-job training with now Supreme Court Justice Lucas P. Bersamin. 

Since the Filipino people have the power to choose it is up to us to decide.
