hen the idea to join The Quezon City Timesas its Editor-in-Chief was broached to me,I wasn’t sure what lay ahead of me. Thecompensation of running a community magazine is nothalf as glorious as that of fashion magazines or a dailynewspaper. In addition, I have always been prudentwith accepting other work aside from my main breadand butter as a development professional because anyadded work eats up time, away from my family. I wasraised by two journalists and I can remember how myparents would commune with their typewriters andscattered news clippings and books around them.“Ssshhh. I am writing. Please go back to play.”But I gave it a second thought. It has always beenmy commitment to raise my child in a community of
service, vision and dialogue. I gured out that even
if I devote my entire life in sharing him my thoughtswithout also shaping the governance, educational system, discourse and culture that helives in, he would just be another frustrated man in a fast-changing and disinterestedworld.Hence, dear readers, in the same tradition of balanced news-casting and developmentaldocumentary, I am privileged to bring you, on behalf of The Quezon City Times, the
rst edition that carries a stronger mission of “Promoting Cooperative Communities”. We
hope to bring you not only stories that answer the whos, whats, whens and wheres, butmore important, questions of why and how. Only when we position our articles in this way
can we drive our readers into reection and action.
We have improved our contents to inform you on what your local government is and isnot doing to better serve our readers. We also want to share real stories of people ofgood intentions so that we may be inspired from their vision. We also desire to showdifferent learning venues for the family which may be a new course, free yoga sessions,new vocational courses or an active book readers’ association. A new and fresh lookcomplements these improvements.To contribute to our local economy, we are devoting pages for small local enterprises.In 2010, Quezon City had 58,133 registered businesses of which more than half arethriving locally. They provide jobs and self-worth to individuals, build local pride for
communities, and stimulate economic activity. They provide tremendous benets but
due to the problems that they face, the challenge to innovate is more pressing for thissector.To improve our collective minds and spirit, we are inviting thought-movers whose workhas contributed to the improvement of people’s lives in Quezon City. They will be sharingincisive articles on politics, culture and governance. In this issue, famous and respectedartist Leonilo Doloricon posits the need to develop a nationalist culture in local economicdevelopment.We hope that these new changes will make your reading experience more fun, enlightening
and reective one.
