Manny Pacquiao - From fight rings to the people’s House

From the Philippine Online Chronicles.

Would the legendary boxing champion from the Philippines perform better in public service as a neophyte Congressman?

First-termer Rep. Emmanuel “Manny” Dapidran Pacquiao, elected Sarangani representative last May, is ready for his much anticipated fight against Mexican American boxer Antonio "Tijuana Tornado" Margarito on November 13 in Dallas, Texas. At the same time, Pacquiao seems to be keen on his responsibilities as a public servant.

Pacquiao has been in office for only three months but he has already authored/co-authored at least 21 bills and resolutions while learning the ropes as a member of the House of Representatives. He is a member for the majority in 11 committees and is a vice chairperson of the Committees on Millennium Development Goals and Youth and Sports Development.

He immediately took up various issues in Congress, such as: human rights, health, education, national security and concerns of youth, women and other marginalized sectors. He proposed the establishment of breast care centers in every region of the country, the establishment of a provincial public hospital in Sarangani, the prohibition of text or SMS spamming. He also called for support for struggling overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), especially the victims of human trafficking.

In his first privilege speech before the plenary, he expressed his ardent desire to help the poor and to help realize the developmental aspirations of the people of Sarangani.

I must say I'm quite impressed. 21 bills and resolutions as a first timer? I think that's more than what President Noynoy did in his entire term as a senator.
