May 13 election is near and I’m sure a lot of us have their list of candidates already. Campaign jingles dominate my TV, heck, I got LSS in some of them. On campaign jingle na nakaka-LSS is the one from JV Estrada, to the tune of “Call Me Maybe”. Catchy, right? He surely knows how to capture the interests of the youth, just like being an active netizen.
JV Estrada knows the importance of social media nowadays that’s why he is using his social network presence as a means of connecting with his constituents, and staying in touch with the pulse of the citizenry, especially the youth. He said being an active netizen enables him to be up to date with the latest trends and other developments concerning young people.
“Youth development is one of my advocacies as a public servant. So being able to interact with students on a daily basis through Twitter and Facebook allows me to identify their needs and help them” – JV Estrada
In this week’s SWS-W Survey, San Juan Representative JV Estrada was steady in the winning circle, at # 7-8, despite being on the opposition slate, and having to cut down on his campaign ads due to financial constraints. In tonight’s news, he was even admitted in the hospital for a week because he suffered from heat stroke.
The very active netizen tweeted this in reaction to the SWS results of the April 13-15 fieldwork: “I am still thankful that I am still in the winning circle in the latest SWS-BW survey. This survey period was when my political ads went off the air because of financial reasons. Still lucky to be in the magic 12 inspite of the problems we in the opposition encounter.”
In other polls, Estrada’s numbers show that he is one of the top voters’ choices. Social Weather Stations’ March 2013 survey placed him at #3, up from #9-10 in the SWS February poll. Pulse Asia opinion polls pegged him at #5 in January and #9 in March.
The netizen is ready to bring the online issues to the Senate, and it looks like the voting public believes JV Estrada is a must-have voice in the Senate for netizens and citizens alike.
