Secretary Judy Taguiwalo on Wednesday mentioned there have been different “arenas” the place she might pursue her advocacy in serving to the marginalized sectors.
Taguiwalo has no plans of slowing down even after the Commission of Appointments (CA) rejected her appointment to lead the Department of Social Welfare and Department (DSWD).
“Ang DSWD ay isang arena. May buhay ho ng paglilingkod sa labas ng DSWD. Hindi dito nagtatapos ang ating laban. Ako naman ay ready to serve the people sa ibang arena,” Taguiwalo mentioned.
“Walang forever sa position pero may forever ho sa paglilingkod sa bayan, sa integidad at sa commitment ng pagmamahal ho sa bayan,” she added.
Taguiwalo was the third Duterte Cabinet member who failed to get the CA’s approval. The first two had been international affairs secretary Perfecto Yasay and setting secretary Gina Lopez.
