Davao Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio talks about her defining moment as a politician.
Defining Moment as a Politician
Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio is not proud of punching a sheriff during a housing demolition. This is after a massive flood in the city. Inday Sara said that she lost control. Her mother then consoles her. But after reminding her that she needs to slow down a bit. Others may not understand where she’s coming from immediately. Surprisingly, this character that impresses others is something that she’s ashamed of.
Efficient Public Servants
The mayor wants to see her people as efficient public servants. She may be likened to her tough-speaking father. But in reality, she seems soft spoken, said the interviewer. However, Mayor Sara considers herself shy and reserved. President Duterte would even tell her that others are better than her in public speaking.
Sara Duterte-Carpio instills strict governance. That’s her image as a politician. The good thing is, she has no problem admitting mistakes. Many followers would want her to be president someday. Although she jokes that she may run as Vice President. Her father would not want her to follow his footstep at this time. Could Bongbong Marcos be her running mate? Many Filipinos are confident that her time will come.
