More NegOr candidates
report election spending
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Both winning and losing candidates in Negros Oriental have filed their Statements of Election Contributions and Expenditures before the 5 p.m. deadline of the Commission on Elections Thursday.

The candidates for governor, vice governor and Sangguniang Panlalawigan filed their SECEs at the provincial Comelec office in Dumaguete City, and those for mayor, vice mayor and town or city sanggunians submitted theirs at the offices where they ran in the May 13 elections.

Outgoing Rep. Jocelyn Limkaichong (Neg. Or., 1 st District) said she spent P2,289,679.12, that was the highest election spending recorded by the Comelec, followed by gubernatorial bet Margarito Teves - P1,991.013.28; and re-elected Gov. Roel Degamo - P1,699,500.

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo said Thursday he will recommend a police officer from Siaton, Senior Supt. Petronelli Baldebrin, to replace Senior Supt. Noli Romana as director of the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office.

Romana, who was assigned to NOPPO a day before the election period started on January 13, is up for transfer to Cebu.

Degamo said he believes Baldebrin is qualified to be NOPPO director as he is from the province and has a good track record.
