True to form, Engr. Roberto A. Cabarrubias is a man of action who prefers to walk the talk and to lead by example. With ten years of teaching, over ten years of corporate practice, and over twenty years of public service (18 years as barangay chairman and 3 years as city councilor), Roberto or "Bob Cab", as he is more popularly known, understands what it takes to be a true servant leader.
When he was still the barangay chairman of Basak Pardo, Bob Cab pioneered the effective use of information and communication technology (ICT) for good governance and better public service. He launched an ICT literacy program to familiarize his constituents with the proper utilization of ICT. He also initiated real property tax collection at the barangay level for improved tax collection, where the remote access server (RAS) of the Cebu City server is connected to the barangay local computer through dial-up connection. By making the barangay hall an e-learning hub, he made possible the paperless communication of all memoranda and accomplishment reports given or submitted by barangay officials, lupon members, tanods, and even street cleaners. He likewise provided his constituents the cheaper alternative to long-distance communication through voice over internet protocol (VOIP).
