MANGALDAN –Mayor Bona Fe D. Parayno lauded the Sanggunian Bayan (town council) for passing into law the Grand Parents Day (GPD) that would be celebrated by senior citizens here every October 1.
During the celebration last October 1 at  MacarioYdia Development Center the mayor told the grandparents that the GPD would be celebrated here every year.
“Gagawin po natin tanda ng pagmamahal at pagsaludo sa mga nagawa ng ating mga lolo at lola sa bawat  isa sa atin dito sa ating bayan. Itong araw na ito ay isang pagunita sa isang tradition na matagumpay,”she stressed.
The mayor reminded grandchildren about the unconditional love given by their grandparents to them.
Mayor Parayno told the grandparents  her administration had just bought medicines that would be given to them for free.
She said the event was their day.
“This is Grand Parents Day at kayo po ang bida ngayong araw,” she said.
In the last part of her speech, Parayno shed tears when she read a poem written by a Filipino grandchild, who was working in United Arab Emirates, about her grandfather who suffered a stroke, became indisposed, and suffered countless bed sores that she tried to cure.
Meanwhile, the successor for the post  of Barangay Poblacion chief Joselito Quinto was threatened with a contempt of court case if she pushed  through with taking her oath last September 29.
Village Councilwoman Naomi Fabia, the number 2 ranked council member, did not appear at the office of Mayor Bona Fe de Vera-Parayno to take her oath for a 60 days holdover position after Parayno planned to preventively suspend Quinto  Number 1 Kagawad Melinda Murillo on that day.

Parayno filed complaints against Quinto and Murillo for illegal exaction when they allegedly issued business permits to individuals who want to put up a business in the village.
Two days before the oath taking and suspension by the mayor of Quinto, Parayno said she would push through, despite the temporary restraining order (TRO), with the oath taking and suspension because she, as advised by her lawyer, was not included in the TRO of Judge Jovito S. Samadan of the Regional Trial Court –Branch 40 in Dagupan City.
“Hindi ako kasali sa TRO ng Judge. Ang Local Government Code  (LGC) of 1991 ay nagbibigay sa akin kapangayarihan ng preventive suspension,” the mayor told Northern Watch.

But a source, who asked for anonymity, observed the mayor and Fabia did not push through with the September 29 oath taking and preventive suspension.
