This first sample resignation letter by a barangay kagawad is actually from a real circumstance form about 3 years ago, where an elected cabinet member, Leni Robredo, resigned from her position due to her differences with the president and his violent response to some of the problems that the country was facing at the time.

“5 December 2016 

Rodrigo Roa Duterte 


Malacanang Palace 

Dear Mr. President, 

I accepted the appointment as Chairperson of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) given our shared commitment to the poor and marginalized. 

I have exerted all efforts to put aside our differences, maintain a professional working relationship, and work effectively despite the constraints because the Filipino people deserve no less. 

However, your directive for me to “desist from attending all Cabinet meetings.’ has effectively made it impossible for me to do my job. Remaining in your Cabinet has become untenable. 

With due respect, I am tendering my resignation as HUDCC Chairperson effective immediately. 

Thank you. 

Marie Leonor G. Robredo”

“Date: December 3, 2013 

To: Mr. Sergio Osmena- Government Consultant Specialist

Subject: Resignation letter 


This is Miriam D. Santiago. I am one of the government researchers working for almost 5 years in the government office. It has been a great privilege to be able to work as one of the government officials. Serving and being the instrument to do services to the nation is a great fulfillment. But at this moment I would like to venture out as I am running as a councilor in barangay. I believe this would serve as a stepping stone for me in engaging in being a public servant. Hoping you will accept my resignation letter and more powers.

To My COMELEC Family

It is with deep sadness that I am informing you about my decision to resign as the Chair of the Commission on Elections by the end of the year.

After much prayer and discernment, I believe that this is the right time to step down given the postponement of the Barangay and SK elections. This was not an easy decision. But my family, especially my children, need me now more than ever.

I believe I have served our Commission well and the Filipino people to the best of my ability, but only with your faithful help and constant support.

The May 2016 automated National and Local elections are a testament to our collective sacrifices and teamwork, as it was hailed by independent local and foreign observers as the best managed and most credible in our electoral history.

I am thankful for the love, prayers, support you have shown me, most especially during my most challenging times. Amid the hurtful, baseless, and malicious accusations hurled against me, most of you never left my side.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, my COMELEC family, it has been a joy and privilege to work for and serve with you.

From any visits to Tuguegarao to Tawi-Tawi, Manila to Mindanao, I will cherish all of our shared memories. I trust that you will continue to perform the mandate entrusted to the Commission, protect the Integrity of our elections, and faithfully serve the interests of the Filipino people.

Maraming, mararning salamat po! Mahal ko kayong lahat!

Sincerely Yours,

J. Andres D. Bautista”
