SOLON CALLS MAYOR’S CLAIMS
Says disallowances can be reversed
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia said it is lamentable that his successor, Mayor Monico Puentevella, and his minions continue serving “half-truths and twisted facts” to the people of Bacolod in their desire to tarnish the record of his administration.
Leonardia met with the Bacolod media over the weekend to counter the vicious claims made by Puentevella and his people last week.
Leonardia said it is not true that Puentevella “inherited” P1.2 billion in loans and payables from the previous administrations. These loans have been partly paid for already, Leonardia said. When he left office, the outstanding loan obligations were only P613 million: P465 million in principal, and P147 million in estimated interest to be paid.
