LINGAYEN – The provincial candidates of the Nationalist People’s Coalition in Pangasinan gear for a grand rally here on March 28.mark c boying celeste
The rally would be led by gubernatorial aspirant Mark O. Cojuangco and would include his slate, and supporters like the five  provincial congressmen and the almost 40 mayors of Pangasinan.
 The rally will be held at 5 pm at this Capital Town’s plaza.
A rule from the Commission on Election says that the 45 days campaign period for the local candidates commences on March 25.
In October last year, Alaminos City Mayor Art Celeste, a former congressman like Cojuangco, declared in a party meeting that 35 incumbent mayors out of the 47 mayors and 75% of the barangay officials of the 1,333 villages of Pangasinan support the governorship and vice governorship candidacies of Cojuangco and Calasiao Mayor Mark Roy Macanlalay.

“So ano po ang ibig sabihin nito? Para po ito sa bayan natin. Kung kasama po natin lahat ng kapitan, kasama po natin lahat ng barangay officials majority hindi naman po lahat paano po tayo matatalo?” Celeste told an army of candidates running for the provincial board, mayoralty, vice mayoralty, and town council at the Cojuangco residence in Sison town.
First District Congressman Jesus Celeste, the mayor’s older brother, told recently this paper that he and nine out of 10 mayors in his district would trounce the ticket of gubernatorial candidate Amado Espino III, the son and namesake of the incumbent governor, in favor of Cojuangco and his slate.
“We got all the mayors here. The governor got all the has-been,” he said
