Alex Lacson--New Pinoy that will do good as a Senator

Atty. Alex Lacson is not your ordinary guy, contrary to what he always tell people. I know him personally. I've seen him in action and I read his speeches. Academically, he's not just fit to become Senator--he's the ideal one. Apart from his law degree which he got from the University of the Philippines-Diliman and post-graduate studies from Harvard, Alex Lacson did it through sheer hard work.

After his graduation, Lacson excelled in his legal profession by defending the poor and the oppressed. He's also active in socio-civic activities, such as World Vision and Gawad Kalinga.

Why do we need another Lacson in the Senate? Three things: First, Lacson bears a surname with a strong and solid legacy in public service. Second, if you compare his credentials with other candidates, Alex Lacson's is better than theirs. And third, we need fresh, new blood that will infuse new ideas and new concepts in governance.
