Interacting with Sangguniang Panlungsod neophyte member, the honorable Aurora Aimee Delgado Grafil gave me a bit of elation and inspiration when she shared her commendable intentions for the city as a member of the legislative body of Tacloban.
Emphatically she declared her all-out support to all the legislative agenda of Mayor Cristina Gonzales Romualdez because she believes that the city mayor has also an impressive and commendable vision for Taclobanons that she gathered specially during the May 2016 electoral campaign.
The massive infrastructure projects now being done in the city will go a long way towards developmentespeciallyalong the long-wished and dreamedreduction of flood occurrences city-wide during heavy rains. The massive reconstruction and repairs of the drainage systems in main Tacloban thorough fares will be the good effect of such city concerns.
Scores of poor families in the city are happy beneficiaries these days of being beneficiaries of livelihood projects to include– bakery, tailoring, dressmaking sari-sari stores, pedicab operations, fruit vendors and a lot more.
All these are given full support by CouncilorAimee Delgado-Grafil and the rest of the SP members of course.
Councilor Aimee is however, while new in the position, no stranger to politics. Her father Atty. Dionisio “Diony” Cubilla Delgado was the municipal mayor of Barugo, Leyte for quite some time. She is likewise the nephew of Atty. Sergio Sumayod, a political figure and legal officer in Tacloban City.
Councilor Aimee is a well-trained registered nurse, with an innate talent in the arts. She possesses a laudable singing voice and a music composer.
Her focus therefore aside from other concerns as a local legislator is to promote arts and culture of Tacloban; take special notice of the youth towards this area of development – identifyspecial art talents and further develop them.
Finally she dreams of having a functional Tacloban City Arts and Culture building. She hopes to get the support of the SangguniangPanlungsud of an ordinance she intends to pass for Mayor Cristina’s approval to realize this intention.
Aimee is married to Dandee Montallana Grafil of Leyte Samar Daily Express with the newspaper’s popular publishers Mr.&Mrs. Dalmacio–Alma Grafil, her parents-in-law.
