Here’s one reason not to lose hope in the country: the inclusion of Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto in the US State Department’s “International Anticorruption Champions.”

Sen. Panfilo Lacson stressed this Wednesday as he described the mayor as a “bright beacon of the land.”

“The bright beacon of the land,” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account, referring to Sotto.

Lacson also reiterated his hopes that emerging leaders who can run the country would have the same anti-corruption drive.

“At least we have good reason not to give up hoping for our beloved country,” he said.

He recalled what a successful businessman recently told him – that for the longest time, “our country is like a boat full of holes that doesn’t sink only because we keep bailing the water out.”

“Nobody has thought of bringing it to a dry dock for repairs.” he said.

Mayor Sotto was one of 12 individuals recognized by the State Department in its new “International Anticorruption Champions Award.”

The award honors those “who have worked tirelessly, often in the face of adversity, to defend transparency, combat corruption, and ensure accountability in their own countries.”
