JBA : Man of Commitment

I often heard this man's name and even met him, but I had no occasion to talk with him privately or casually or even shook hands with him.

Jose Benito Alonso
In our recent school activity which he had been invited to be our guest, now I had a better grasp of this man and who really he is in person.

While we were sitting together in a guest table, we were exchanging talks on various topics. I noticed the way he talked, the way he relayed his personal experiences as a son, as a student, as a community relation officer, and as the way he expressed his ideology, especially on the masses' plight.

He held several elected positions, but I sensed from him that he is not a politician. In the manner, he expressed his thoughts on handling people's welfare without any tinge of politicking. If you look at him, the way he carries himself, the way he acts, you may mistake him as an elite, as a hypocrite, for he is mestizo, but he doesn’t absolutely display that kind of attitude. He is friendly, amiable.

With all due respect, I am happy that I met this man, a "real person" I should say. He is the only man I know with a sense of commitment in the way he talks. He is "good" as far as I am concerned personally. His name is a derivative of a Cebuano dialect, "osa" meaning one. His second name purports the good manner he carries. The traits he had within himself. In Spanish, it is "bien" or a variance of "bueno". And his family name confides within oneness or being alone in principle, but not lonely in person.

I am referring to Jose Benito Alonso, incumbent board member of the 4th district of Negros Occidental, which covers our place, La Carlota City.

Board member Jose Benito as fondly called by friends and associates as "Joeben" Alonso is a man of principle, a man of commitment.

As an invited guest in our annual coronation of Mutya and Ginoo 2013, he wanted to help the Cubay Elementary school especially in the computerization program of the DepEd. He had committed to donate a set of desktop computer for the computer-aided instruction of the pupils. He also wanted to follow up the construction of school covered court to protect not only the graduating pupils in their closing exercises every year, but also the pupils in their flag ceremony and school activities from heat of the sun and from the rain.

Before, we bid goodbye after the program, he said, “Sir Camporazo, a letter of request is different from a commitment.” I understood what he wanted to convey. Then I replied, “Thank you, Board!”

It is not yet too late that I have met this man.

Nice meeting you, Board Member Joeben and more power!
