Percentie Stands With Her People
There she was on the front page, shovel in hand backed up by heavy earthmoving equipment, vowing to shift away the offending roadblock. It was a compelling image of Ann Percentie, Pineridge MP and Parliamentary Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister who is quickly developing the reputation of being a ‘no nonsense’ representative of the people.

The story began when unknown agents blocked an unpaved extension of Balao Road in the east of Freeport City which had been used as a shortcut home by residents of Freeport Ridge estates. The residents complained and Ms. Percentie acted, saying that the residents were being discriminated against by the closing of the road and called on “the authorities” to immediately address the situation. Bravo, Ann. But we wonder who exactly are the authorities? Surely it is she and she has, in fact, acted already. One of those things that happen from time to time where government and quasi government interact and one of those things that make you go, hmmmm.
