Surdilla, a lawyer, will be the acting mayor of Mangaldan for 14 days after Mayor Bona Fe D. Parayno took a leave of absence.  Mortz C. Ortigoza

Vice Mayor Pedro “Jojo” Surdilla Jr. said as an acting mayor,he could only sign vouchers, resolutions, and ordinances approved by the members of the Sangguniang Bayan (town legislature) but he could not appoint, suspend, or dismiss employees.
He said he became acting mayor in December 14 until December 30 when Mayor Bona Fe D. Parayno will return from her trip.
Roberto Tamondong, a political consultant of the mayor, said as acting mayor, Surdilla can automatically exercises the powers duties and functions of the mayor except the power to appoint, suspend, or dismiss employees as provided in the Local Government Code of 1999 if his stint is less than 30 days.
Surdilla, a lawyer, said that he would oversee the programs of Parayno that were already in the official pipeline.

Parayno and Surdilla have harmonious political collaboration because they were tandem in the Liberal Party in the last May 9 election. 
Unlike during the time of former Vice Mayor Manuel Casupang, the executive headed by the mayor and the legislature headed by Casupang were at loggerheads and stalemate for several occasions because of the duo’s differences at the expense of passing new laws.
