“Si Gov. Chatto sinsero mangayo’g tambag ug sinsero pod maminaw sa tambag. Unya sinsero pod nga mo-implement ug mo-implement pod dayon. Mao sad na akong ganahan ni Gov. He is consultative, honestly-talking and, in asking advices, he weighs which is most rational way/solution. And he always double-checks for the best sa katawhan.” — Dr. Rene Rollon, UP professor, environmentalist, marine biologist
Former HNU Principal & HS Class Adviser Babie Cardino recalls, “Edgar is a strong, brilliant and upright student leader who is respected by his classmates, schoolmates, teachers and non-academic personnel. We knew he would be a leader of Bohol someday. I know Edgar by heart. It pains me when I hear nasty stories peddled by political critics against him because all of us know how his outstanding values have inspired other young leaders, both in their private and public lives.”
“He is a most compassionate governor. His love for the less fortunate and concern for the sick and suffering, even if they are not Boholanos, are incredible. He is sincere in addressing health concerns that need government interventions. No other province can match Bohol in most number of foreign-aided major surgical missions. He never discriminates life for political differences. I am lucky and proud that Gov. Chatto is a fellow Boholano.” — Fancy Baluyot, president/chief executive officer of the Philippine Gift of Life and former long-time Red Cross administrator
