A community pantry in Rodriguez (Montalban), Rizal has been makings its rounds on social media after it was seen bearing the names of the town’s top official and his sister who also holds a public position.
A photo posted on Facebook, which as of posting time has been shared over 5,000 times, showed a community pantry with the name of Rodriguez Mayor Tom Hernandez and his sister, Brgy. San Isidro Chairwoman Mayet Hernandez.
“Kadiri talaga,” the netizen said.
The photo was first shared on Twitter, with the uploader saying: “When #CommunityPantryPH is now being used as a tool for a public official’s visibility.”
Commenters did not minced words by calling out what they branded as a political maneuvering by the Politiko siblings.
This was not the first time that the town’s top official received fierce criticisms. Just last month, he was criticized after distributing NMAX motorcycles to Sangguniang Kabataan chairmen in Rodriguez. But he denied that public funds were used in the project, saying that the motorcycles were donated by a certain group.
