The newly appointed Presidential Communications Operations Office Usec. For New Media Lorraine Badoy said that her job in the agency has nothing to do with the criticism PCOO Asec. Mocha Uson continuously receives from the public.
Badoy said that it is not part of her role to control Uson. She even referred to the Assistant Secretary as as intelligent and a strong woman.
Badoy defended Uson stating that the latter is not a promoter of fake news especially when she was able to answer all queries of the senators during a recent Senate hearing.
Meanwhile, Badoy promised that her office will be accommodating and continue to listen to listen in order to relay the public’s perception to the President.
Prior to this, in her personal Facebook account, Badoy said that she was offered the said position some two months ago, and she was hesitant to accept it.
She feared of leaving her job at the Department of Social Welfare and Development, where she had already created a strong bond with what she called as “some of the most compassionate, most hardworking and faithful of public servants” who deserved the kind of leader who is equal with them for the heart and soul they put in serving the country.
However, she decided that it was time to “step out of the known and into the unknown.”
Badoy added that it is an “honor and the privilege of her life” to serve the country.
Badoy will start her work at the PCOO on November 1, after being appointed last October 19.
