Councilor Saleto Erames said he is requesting for official leave of absence from the Dumaguete Sangguniang Panlungsod due to a lingering ailment, SP Secretary Arthur Fran Tolcidas said Wednesday.
Tolcidas said all referrals in the committees assigned to Erames will be temporarily handled by Councilor Franklin Esmena Jr., at the request of Erames.
Vice Mayor Woodrow Maquiling Sr. said Erames was recently airlifted to the St Luke’s Medical Center in Makati for treatment.
His son, Board Member Rommel Erames, said his father is back in Dumaguete City, and undergoing chemotherapy.
The councilor has been absent for three consecutive SP sessions, and his supporters are asking about the state of his health.*JG
