Hello world!


Welcome to altavas.com blog. This is our first post.

This website is dedicated to the memory of Jose Altavas, statesman and illustrious son of the provinces of Capiz and Aklan,  Philiipines.

This site will be an informational forum for ideas and thoughts related to Philippine social, economic, and political issues which affect the everyday lives of Filipinos everywhere.

We will feature articles, commentaries, editorials, and blogs from various authors.

This will be an evolving website and we will be open to ideas.

I am just starting this website and all the other pages are still under construction.

I’d like to hear from you regarding your thoughts on how to best use this medium and honor the legacy of Jose Altavas..
