Espino wins overwhelming victory

Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. and Mayor Ferdie Calimlim have been proclaimed by the Provincial Board of Canvassers (PBOC) just before noon today, May 14 at the Session Hall of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, as winners of the 2010 Elections for the gubernatorial and vice gubernatorial posts.

In the gubernatorial race, Gov. Espino cruised to an overwhelming victory over Agbayani where he totally eclipsed the latter in all 44 towns and three cities, winning each area with enormous margins.

Gov. Espino garnered 829,441 votes while his opponent only mustered 301,141 votes for a staggering difference of 528,300 or over half a million votes.

Newsweek and Woman’s Today Magazine

Just like the financially burdened but ubiquitous provincial newspapers that just spurt-out and die-out, the prestigious Newsweek Magazine has just called it quits.
