Manay Gina for Pangasinan governor?

By Mortz C. Ortigoza
DAGUPAN CITY – Is Fourth District Rep. Georgina de Venecia running for a gubernatorial seat in the province next year?
Manay Gina, as she is endearingly called by her supporters, said it was not an impossibility that she runs for the top elective post in Pangasinan.
“We are still consulting one another in the family,” she said recently.
De Venecia, who is the congresswoman of the 4th District of Pangasinan, will find herself “jobless” next year in case her husband Jose, a former five-time speaker of the House of Representatives, will reclaim his post in the 2013 poll.
She said in the past that her electoral option is open for the mayoralty race of this city and the gubernatorial post.
“I and my husband are mulling what is best for us and the (place) where our services are needed most,” she said in Filipino.
In a recent gathering of political dignitaries in Davao City, the name of de Venecia cropped up as a possible gubernatorial bet of President Benigno Simeon Aquino III’s Liberal Party in Pangasinan .
“There is a big possibility for Manay Gina to try the gubernatorial post since she has no more political seat to run except the mayoralty post of Dagupan and the governor’s post in the province,’ said a political analyst who asked for anonymity. (more…)

ORTIGOZA: Anatomy of corruptions: Assessor, BIR, Register of Deeds

A top government official told me how an assessor of a town or city fleece a taxpayer (seller or buyer of a real property) who asked for the certification of a real property’s classification.
The classifications are residential, agricultural, and commercial.
“With the right amount given by the taxpayer, he certifies the land as residential even it is located in a commercial area,” he told me.
He explained that the government lose a huge amount of taxes that runs to thousands if not millions of pesos because a P30 thousand per square meter (PSM) of real property (land and/or building) will become P10 thousand PSM only for just a stroke of a pen by a corrupt assessor . (more…)
