Dear OFWs, please go out and vote!

I received a letter today from a good friend, as well as a good friend of all overseas Filipinos - Susan "Toots" Ople. We firmly believe she will give us a voice in the Senate. We ask you to vote for her and ask your families and friends back home to vote for her as OFW Senator as well.


Dear Friends,

Now that the period for overseas absentee voting has begun, I would like to appeal for your support in encouraging more of our OFWs to go out and vote.

Sana gamitin natin ang pagkakataon na ito upang magkaroon ng pagbabago sa Senado. Mga bagong mukha, na may mga bagong panukala - kung hindi mabibigyan ng pagkakataon ay parehong Senado pa rin ang ating mamanahin.

Unlike other traditional candidates, I have waged a campaign based on issues, consciously choosing the high road in this most challenging journey. Nakakalungkot kasi kung di ka gimikera, mahirap mapansin sa pambansang entablado maski gaanong katalino ka pa. Pero hindi ako susuko, hindi ako nawawalan ng pag-asa dahil may misyon ako sa pagtakbo - at iyan ay ang pagtulong sa ating mga OFWs.

And so on this day, when voting precincts for political freedom have opened its doors for overseas Filipinos, I appeal for one out of 12 votes to be cast by our OFWs. One out of 12 that will be thinking of reforms in labor and overseas employment 24/7 everyday. This is the world I grew up in, and there were many, many lessons learned from my father, the late Ka Blas Ople, that I can share and build upon, in the pursuit of this mission.

With all humility, I appeal for your support. Let us do what we can to encourage as many Filipinos overseas to cast their ballots. And hopefully, with God's blessing, an OPLE can once again serve in the Senate.

Please feel free to copy and paste this message and send out to your friends and relatives abroad.

Mabuhay ang mga OFWs! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

Sumasaiyo,

Susan "Toots" Ople
