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.

Gov. Espino’s total votes translate to 72.7 percent of the total votes cast for the governorship while Agbayani has to contend with a poor total of 26.4 percent. This roughly translates to ratio of 7:3 in favor of Gov. Espino.

Mayor Calimlim also clobbered Lambino in the vice gubernatorial race by garnering 662,728 votes against the latter’s 386,554 votes.

Overwhelmed by his fresh mandate, Gov. Espino in his proclamation message, promised to continue serving the people of Pangasinan with renewed vigor and determination to pursue his administration’s collective vision of making the province as the best place to invest, work, live and raise a family and make Pangasinan truly number one.

Towards this end, he called on the people to set aside political differences even as he asked them to leave behind the hurts and ill-feelings brought about by the just concluded electoral exercise.

Gov. Espino likewise urged the Pangasinenses to look forward, as one provincial family, to work together for a bright and stable future for the next generations to come.

“As I did during my first term, I will not disappoint you,” the Governor said as he stressed that there are more better things to come for the people and the province.

The mandate given anew by the people of Pangasinan only affirms their craving for a real change and indicates loudly and clearly that the people wanted reform and development.

Over the last two years and ten months of working seriously to transform the provincial government into a well-organized and effective machinery for change and development, the Espino administration proved its worth in achieving its vision and mission for the province.

All who have come and visited Pangasinan have expressed common wonder and awe at the rate of change and transformation that have steadily taken place in so short a time.

The people also began to understand and appreciate the province’s efforts to bring order, discipline, professionalism and decency in the provincial government and to pursue programs and projects where they were needed regardless of political color, without any political agenda.

Meanwhile, Gov. Espino has stressed to strengthen his 10-point program giving emphasis to peace and order, health care, education, sports and cultural development and the promotion of agricultural technology transfer for farmers and fishermen.

The Governor said he is happy about the election turn-out because it has proven that the people now believe in performance.

He thanked the various religious groups like the Iglesia Ni Cristo and other sectors who gave their support and endorsement for his candidacy and called on the people of Pangasinan to start a new life forget all negative things that has happened especially during the election period and become united for a progressive Pangasinan.
