PROFILE


Hon. Cecilia V. De Asis

Councilor

Commitment to public service knows no boundaries. That is one of the standards that City Councilor Cecilia B. Veluz-de Asis puts into practice to ensure that her actions will not be hampered or get derailed by things she regards as inconsequential.

In brief recollection, the Councilor said it was her parents who taught her the basics of public service. She said a public servant has to be accommodating and sincere at all times regardless of how big or small an action is being demanded to be carried out. Nene, as she is fondly called, began to learn the value and nobility of public service since her grade school years when her father, Silverio, was the town mayor of Del Gallego and became provincial board member and when her mother, Lucy, served as a mayor for seven (7) years in Del Gallego.

Popularly hailed as Kasurog kan Familia (Family Defender), Nene was first elected to city council in 1998 where she earned the moniker “champion for the welfare of women and children, and strong family relations.” She finished her three-year term in 2007 and was again overwhelmingly re-elected in 2010 as the “first woman” councilor topnotcher.  

Among her landmark legislative measures are the ordinances penalizing domestic violence and providing protective measures to battered wives/husbands, creating the Naga City Council for Women, declaring every March 8 to March 14 of the year as Women’s Week, as well as an ordinance directing hospitals in Naga City to identify a Pink Crisis Center for rape victims, and a resolution that calls upon all barangays in the city to create a separate committee on Family and Women. She also authored other ordinances, such as Breastfeeding, Foster Care for Abused Children, creating the Naga City Multi-sectoral STI/HIV/AIDS Council, promoting positive and non-violent forms of discipline of children, prohibiting corporal and all forms of degrading and humiliating punishment of children and providing penalties, conferring upon the city’s Baranggay Health Workers the limited right to security of tenure, increasing their honoraria, appropriating funds and for other purposes, and many more.

The councilor, during her first term, also worked for the approval of an ordinance implementing Foster Care for Abused Children. It was during that time that she began to spearhead the Naga City Bantay Familia, a non-government organization that works for the prevention of domestic violence and protects victims/survivors of domestic violence. NCBF serves as a community watch group and is organized in the 27 baranggays of the city. Recently, the Philippine Commission on Women awards Naga City as one of few chosen Gender and Development Local Learning Hub (GAD LLH) as a testament to the efficacy of the Naga City Bantay Familia Program. As councilor and concurrent chairperson of the Naga City Bantay Familia, Councilor de Asis envisions a bright future for every Nague┼ło family because of the city government’s campaign for strong family bond which she believes is the key to reduce the number of cases of crimes and poverty.
