to us: Siquijor mayor
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Negros Oriental will always be a big brother to us, Mayor Meynard Asok of Maria town in Siquijor province, said, in reaction to the creation of the Negros Island Region 18, and the eventual separation of Negros from Central Visayas.
He said Siquijor is definitely saddened with the development, but he is looking at the changes in the composition of the region in a positive way. He added that since Region 7 will be minus one province, Siquijor island is hoping for a bigger share from the region in terms of budget allocations.
