Atty. Wilma T. Eisma swears in as the Chairperson and Administrator of SBMA by virtue of Executive Order no. 42 that repeals EO 340, an earlier EO that split SBMA’s leadership.

Eisma is the first woman to have been appointed to the post. With this, the leadership brawl in SBMA has finally come to an end. We can only hope that the other party will take the matter with humility and magnanimity so we can move forward and harness all our energies and resources instead for the fruition of our dreams of a greater Subic Bay.
To Atty. Eisma, we believed in you and we continue to believe in you for as long as you keep up your longstanding work ethics and philosophies. For as long as you keep up your lowkey leadership principles, which are divorced from politics and the usual hedonistic intentions of those who are in power.
We will celebrate this day not just because of one man’s—or I should say one woman’s—victory but because of a grander victory that belongs to the people, especially those who work or do business inside the Freeport. “Political will” also scores a win from this executive decision. It means that the government cannot be swayed (at least not all the time) by partisanship and political beholdenness.
You have our back, Ms. Amy. You are destined to lead the way and purge Subic Bay of its parasites. You have more balls and guts than all of them guys put together. You put the ACE in Eisma. And everybody knows that the ACE trumps the KING at any given time.
