Three congressional candidates in their team – forester Oscar Arias – second district, Murcia Mayor Esteban “Sonny” Coscolluela – third district, and businessman Philip Arles – sixth district, also filed their COCs.

Coscolluela said they will give the 2010 polls their best shot, “we have more support than we expected.”moremoremore

Lito remains head of SRA

Rafael Coscolluela will remain Sugar Regulatory Administrator despite his having filed his Certificate of Candidacy for governor of Negros Occidental, yesterday.

“If the rules were not changed I would be considered resigned effective today. Fortunately the Supreme Court has decided that appointive officials will not be considered resigned from their posts,” he said.

So he will be spending the next three months at least institutionalizing the changes that he brought into SRA, Coscolluela said.moremoremore
