for chairman of Baciwa
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella is questioning why he was presented only one nominee when he is supposed to choose a replacement for Lawrence Villanueva, chairman of the Board of Director of the Bacolod City Water District, whose term expires on December 31.
Puentevella yesterday said he wrote Baciwa a letter asking about the other three nominees. He claimed that director/Board secretary Marichi Ramos disqualified the three others and only recognized Villanueva.
