MANILA – Senator Grace Poe on Thursday lauded the recent appointment of Cesar Chaves, former Manila Mayor Isko Moreno’s chief of staff as undersecretary of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) in the incoming administration.
In a statement, Poe said that Chaves could bring years of management skills to help build and modernize the country’s railways and trains as crucial means of mass transportation
“We laud the choice of Chavez as part of the official family of the Department of Transportation,” she said.
“Having seamless transportation that will bring ease to commuters, make travel faster and less costly should be a goal that is achievable under the incoming administration,” she ended.
Chaves resigned as COS of Moreno after the latter ran for the presidency. Moreno lost. He also held the same position under the administration of former President Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo until he went back to his first profession, as mediaman. (ai/mtvn)
