Vice Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday outlined the support the Negros Occidental Sangguniang Panlalawigan has given to boost the province's economic growth, and meet the employment, health, education and power needs of Negrenses.
“Of the many development programs that this administration has pursued, this Sanggunian played an important role in realizing them,” Lacson said in his 2015 Legislative Report delivered before the members of the SP at their regular session at the Capitol in Bacolod City yesterday.
He said the SP has supported the programs of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. “on the foundations of principled partnership and critical collaboration”, based on a shared commitment to the people of Negros Occidental.

Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday reiterated his call for everyone to refrain from any further speculation on the real intent and persons behind the killing of Board Member Renato Malabor, and his aide, Leody Jomilla.
The vice governor, his 2015 Legislative Report delivered before members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan at the Capitol, stressed the need for a speedy release of investigation results to avoid preemptive conclusions that will only sow further division and conflict.

stoppage of ethanol plant
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW & JUANCHO GALLARDE

Bais City Mayor Mercy Teves Goñi yesterday likened herself to “David” as the local government unit is now faced with a very strong opponent, the United Robina Sugar Milling Company, that operates the ethanol plant that has been initially identified as the “culprit” in the fish kills in the north Bais Bay.
