Former Vice Mayor Emmanuel Diputado claimed that the lack of vision of Sibulan town prompted him to run for mayor against incumbent Mayor Marcela Grampon-Bartoces and Vice-Mayor Antonio Renacia.
Deputado said the potentials of Sibulan have remained untapped for the town to register a significant economic growth and better living standards for its citizens.
Councilor Indira Requiron said Sibulan’s future remains in limbo due to the absence of any long-term plan that will harness its potentials for fresh investments and expansion of businesses, pursuant to the Metro Dumaguete concept.
Diputado and Requiron said Sibulan, due to its capital city of Dumaguete, can aggressively present itself as an ideal show window of the auto industry by improving peace and order.
The administration can also utilize the upland barangays to promote eco-tourism and inland fishing, that will fuel growth and generate jobs.
Diputado, of the United Nationalist Alliance, is facing incumbent Mayor Grampon-Bartoces of the Nationalist Peoples Coalition and Antonio Renacia of the Liberal Party. Diputado lost narrowly to Bartoces in the 2010 polls.*RG
