Poe to push for Negros
relief from high fuel rates

Senatorial candidate Grace Poe yesterday said she wants to push for a solution to higher prices of fuel in Negros Occidental if elected into the Senate.

Poe, chairman of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board, was in Negros Occidental with Senator Francis Escudero yesterday.

She said she is aware of the concerns of Negros Occidental as her mother, Susan Roces, is from the province where she has relatives.

The daughter of the late Fernando Poe Jr. also said she shares her father's passion and desire to help the poor.

Like her father, she understands that poverty can break a Filipino family, and bring great harm to children, she said.

Poe said she sees the need to focus poverty alleviation efforts on the family as a basic social institution.

She said that, as chairman of the MTRCB under the administration of President Benigno Aquino III, she has reformed the classification system for movies and television, provided institutional support to independent film makers, and brought together government agencies and media organizations in order to protect the interest of children.

Before her stint in government, she worked at FPJ Productions and Film Archives Inc. She also worked in the United States as a teacher, product liaison officer and a product manager.

She has Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Boston College and completed two years of Development Studies at the University of the Philippines in Manila.*CPG
