NPC Bacolod bets
‘powerhouse cast'

Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia, chairman of the Nationalist People's Coalition in Bacolod City, said yesterday that the party has drawn up a complete slate of their candidates for the election next year and that it is going to be a “powerhouse cast”.

At the meeting of the NPC District Sunday, he told the group to go “full speed ahead” with the work for the elections.

He did not disclose the names of the NPC candidates, but confirmed that they already have candidates for congressman, mayor, vice mayor and for the 12 seats in the city council. They also have a line-up of alternate candidates, and added that they had a hard time choosing because of the number of good choices.moremoremore

MGB 7 urges vigilance vs.
Mabinay sinkholes

A senior official of the Mines and Geo-Sciences Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Region 7 cautioned officials and residents of Mabinay, Negros Oriental, to be vigilant and continue monitoring the sinkholes that have formed in that upland municipality.
