Jim Paredes To Become Secretary of Department of Tourism


jim paredesJim Paredes expressed that he is willing to work under President-elect Noynoy Aquino’s government if given the chance to serve the people.

Rumors have it that Paredes is being eyed to head the Tourism portfolio that was first offered to TV show host and celebrity manager Boy Abunda.  Abunda declined.

The APO Hiking Society member and composer is a staunch supporter of Noynoy Aquino during the campaign trail.

“The real questions they are asking me: Are you willing to sacrifice, are you willing to live with less than you are getting now, are you willing to withstand pressure, are you willing to do all of these things? After giving it a lot of thought, I’d been talking about change since Cory’s (the late president Corazon Aquino) time since now. I think now at this stage, you have to say yes when asked. That is my view.”

Asked if he is willing to work as a Tourism secretary,

“No. Bahala na, whatever comes let me give it a good, good thought then that’s the time I decide…. I will not campaign for anything, I will not. I simply will not. I serve humbly if asked.”

Paredes said that serving in the government and making sacrifices for the nation is a very humbling experience.

It can be recalled that Jim Paredes and family migrated to Australia after getting so much disappointed about the results of people power going nowhere and only perpetrated a more corrupt government under President Arroyo.
