Ang Aking Senador ay si NERIC ACOSTA

Kung may karapat-dapat na maging senador ng Pilipinas ito ay si teacher Neric Acosta. Personal ko syang nakilala at nakasama at masasabi kong tunay na kailangan siya ng ating bayan.

Prof, Acosta has authored the various articles related to his areas of interest, and his articles on political and public life regularly appear in the “Perspectives” section of the website In management, he is interested in market-based instruments as well as government policy that will help achieve environmental goals. Neric is convenor of the Philippine Imperative on Climate Change.

He received a BA in Political Science from the University of the Philippines and an MA in Public Affairs (International Relations and Political Studies concentration) from the University of Pennsylvania (1987).

Dr. Acosta has also consistently championed the cause for peace and development in Mindanao as he believes that the issues of conflict and under-development in Mindanao as well as the parity concerns are very important issues that must no longer be ignored by the national government. Thus, he commits to be Mindanao’s voice and champion in the Senate.
