Robin Padilla pushes to use real name ‘Robinhood’ in senate comms

Sen. Robin Padilla wants his to use his real name for all senate office communications.

In a letter written to Senate Secretary Myra Marie Villarica, Padilla said that that he prefers to be addressed using his real name, “Robinhood.”

“This is to respectfully inform your good office of this Representation’s preference to be addressed as ROBINHOOD C. PADILLA for all Senate communications and correspondences,” the senator wrote on Wednesday, July 6. 

Padilla’s real name has previously caught the public’s attention after the Commission on Elections (Comelec) released a resolution of the National Board of Canvassers, wherein all of the first and last names of the 2022 senatorial candidates were to be listed down.

Upon learning the former action star’s full name, netizens were quick to comment and link the name to an iconic figure—someone known for robbing the rich in order to give to the poorest of society.

Robinhood has been popularly depicted as a Sherwood Forest outlaw donning a feathered cap and a hood. However, he is also considered to be a legendary folk hero. 

Padilla officially took his oath as senator last June 17.

During his campaign, plans of upholding anti-criminality measures, improving wages, establishing federalism, and legislating community policing were among his platforms.
