Negros areas of concern
for Monday polls increase

The military and police yesterday increased the number of “areas of concern” during the barangay elections in Negros Occidental Monday to 127 barangays.

Col. Jon Aying, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, said at a Commission on Elections-Philippine National Police-Armed Forces of the Philippines provincial coordinating conference at the Capitol in Bacolod City that seven more barangays were added to the list because of recent incidents of violence in most of these areas.

Among the seven areas added to the list were Brgy. Linaon, Cauayan, where barangay kagawad candidate Alfred Lucero was killed, and Brgy. Dian-ay, Escalante City, where the house of Kagawad Noel Sabordo was strafed, recently.moremoremore

LWUA:  Order vs.
Ramos executory

As far as the Local Water Utilities Administration is concerned,its order on October 14 denying the confirmation of the appointment of Marichi Ramos as representative the Professional Sector of the Bacolod City Water District is executory, LWUA Corporate Legal Counsel Arnaldo Espinas said yesterday.

The LWUA, through an officer-in-charge, Manuel Yoingco, denied the confirmation of Ramos’ appointment on the ground of “material misrepresentation” with respect to her claim as a professional, and the alleged string of pending cases against her which was taken as a gauge of her moral fitness to be in public service.

It enjoined the Board to solicit nominations from the proper sector for her replacement.moremoremore
