Dep’t head files raps
versus mayor at CSC


A former department head of the Bacolod City Planning and Development Office filed a complaint for constructive dismissal against Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella and the City of Bacolod before the Civil Service Commission yesterday, saying that her transfer to another office is illegal and motivated by politics.

Mary Jean Ramos said that on August 28, she received a memorandum from City Administrator Rolando Villamor informing her of her transfer as department head of the CPDO to one of the offices of Economic Enterprise, which is the creation of a mere ordinance and not a department head position.

Ramos, a certified public accountant, and the wife of former Councilor Dindo Ramos, was appointed by the former Mayor Evelio Leonardia on February 16 as department head of the CPDO and her appointment was concurred in by the City Council of Bacolod City.
