Maybahay ni City Administrator Alvin Fernandez, Hinarass ng mga Armadong Kalalakihan sa Brgy. Bolosan

Bakas pa ang takot at umiiyak na humarap sa media ang maybahay ni city administrator Alvin Fernandez kagabi sa isang press conference upang ihayag ang tunay na nangyari sa Brgy. Bolosan bago magtakip silip ika-2 ng Mayo, 2010.

Ayon kay Katherine Fernandez, maybahay ni city administrator Alvin Fernandez kasalukuyan silang nangangampanya sa liblib na bahagi ng naturang barangay kasama ang ilang barangay kagawad at chief tanod sa lugar. Nang isang sasakyan ang namataang mabilis na nakasunod sa grupo at bigla na lamang siyang makarinig ng sigaw na “I-secure si Mam” kasunod pa ang pahayag na “takbo Mam, takbo Mam!” at nang lumingon siya mula sa likod ay may nakitang mga kalalakihang may bitbit na baril.

Sa takot para sa kanilang buhay at pagkataranta ay agad na tumakbo at nagtago si Ginang Fernandez kasama ang ilang kagawad at tanod ng lugar sa isang bahay roon. Kasunod ang pagtawag at pahingi niya ng saklolo sa asawang noon ay nasa Barangay Lucao.

Mangaldan’s mayoral bet campaigns in style

MANGALDAN – In the electoral history of this town, this is the first time the people here are treated with a mayoral candidate that barnstorm a public place wearing a glove on her right hand to shake the hands of the crowd, as she was being followed by an aide with an opened umbrella to shade her head from the scorching summer heat.

According to an eyewitness, who asked anonymity, mayoral bet Bona de Vera has her unique way of pumping the hand of a well-wisher: Clasped only the finger tips of the person in front as her way of shaking his hand.
The observer opined that she seems to have some olfactory sensibilities too to alcohol as she shuns men in the market place who were drinking liquors whenever her sortie goes on their direction.

JDV, Lakas Originals go for Noynoy-Mar Tandem

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

DAGUPAN CITY – One of the founders of the once vaunted political machine Lakas-CMD Party has prevailed over his former party mates at the struggling Lakas-Kampi NUCD Party to jump ship by endorsing Liberal Party presidential bet Noynoy Aquino.

Former Speaker Jose de Venecia says that he and LP vice presidential contender Mar Roxas have already discussed at his house here recently the plan of the former Lakas members to go public and support Aquino instead of presidential contender Gilbert Teodoro of the Lakas-Kampi NUCD Party – who still stuck on a series of pathetic survey outcomes.

At the manifesto published by the Lakas-Originals to different national papers, it declared that it believes that both Aquino and Roxas’s charisma and managerial competence make them the perfect team to lead the country’s economic break-out into an increasing competitive East Asia and globalizing world.
