Where is freedom and democracy in Baguio if an ordinary citizen is suppressed from posting her comments and opinions regarding public officials in Baguio?!  Public servants such as Baguio City  Congressman Bernardo Vergara and Mayor Mauricio Domogan should be open to critics and public opinion!  They must not silence anyone for posting comments and opinions not favorable to them!!  This must stop!

AN OPEN LETTER TO BAGUIO CITY CONGRESSMAN BERNARDO VERGARA AND MAYOR MAURICIO DOMOGAN:  STOP SUPPRESSING FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY IN BAGUIO!? Vergara and Domogan pikon - talo!?

I do – a Baguio girl to the bones and I hate what’s become of our city. Sure there’s nowhere for Baguio to go but the city it is now. Every place on earth has to become progressive and “citycized.” We cannot be a humble barrio forever. Baguio should be developed and made a hotshot city.

We are sad because the progress we thought was good was the very same thing that ruined our beautiful city. And we can’t bring the same old pretty Baguio back. It’s really sad, it can even be depressing sometimes. A day doesn’t pass when I walk around our streets and don’t ask how Baguio ever became like this. Baguio is so small. One can ride around the whole of
