CORTEZ: Heneral na pulitiko umatras


ABANTE ABONO PARTY-LIST. Hindi po natitinag ang leadership ng Abono party-list sa pagsulpot ng iba pang party-list sa Pangasinan.

Tuloy tuloy pa rin ang kampanya ng Abono Party-list para sa mga pamilyang umaasa sa agrikultura.

Ang first nominee ng Abono Party-list ay isang Ortega ng La Union… ang second nominee ng Abono Party-list ay isang Estrella ng Pangasinan.

brando-maso

At ang third nominee ng abono Party-list ay isang pulitiko sa Pangasinan na ang tatay ay may dugong Bisaya.

Ibig sabihin, madadagdagan ang boto ng Abono Party-list ng boto mula sa Visayas region para maka-three seats ang Abono sa House of Representatives.

ABANTE CONRAD. Tuloy na tuloy na ang pagbalik ni congressman Conrad Estrella sa 6th district.

Sumunod naman siya sa usapan na si Cong Marlyn Agabas ang magpapatuloy ng maiiwan niyang congressional seat noong nag-last term siya.

Marami din ang nag-udyok kay Cong Conrad na bumalik na as regular congressman ng 6th district pagkatapos niyang magpahinga ng 3 years. Ito ay noong 2013 elections.

Pero, ang usapan ay usapan. Kaya pinanindigan ni
Cong Conrad na suportahan si Cong Marlyn sa kanyang second term. Si Cong Conrad ay bumalik sa pulitika sa Pangasinan bilang 2nd nominee ng Abono Party-list.

Nitong nakaraang 2016 elections, ay marami na naming leaders ng 6th district ang kumausap kay Cong Conrad na bumalik na as regular congressman.

Pero, ang usapan ay usapan. Kaya pinanindigan ni cong Conrad na suportahan si cong Marlyn sa kanyang third term. Si Cong Conrad ay muling nagpatuloy sa pulitika sa Pangasinan bilang 2nd nominee ng Abono Party-list.

Siyempre, last term na ni Cong Marlyn. Naging totoo si Cong Conrad sa usapan nila ni Cong Marlyn. Naka three terms si Cong Marlyn.

Ngayong 2019 elections ay tuloy na tuloy na si Cong Conrad na babalik bilang regular congressman ng 6thcongressional district ng Pangasinan.

***

Hindi daw totoo na tatakbo for mayor ng Alcala si BM Niño Arboleda. May iba siyang plano sa pulitika.

***

ATRAS. Maraming nagsasabi na umatras na and isang pultiko na supposed to be ay sure na sure na sa kaniyang plano for 2019.elections.

Isang heneral na naging pulitiko dito sa Pangasinan ay naidekalra nang magiging vice governor aspirant na ka-tandem ng isang magre-reelect na gubernador pagkatapos na pagkatapos noong 2016 elections.

Pero, ano ba itong heneral na pulitikong ito?

Kesyo may option daw siya na mag-undersecretary o assistant secretary na lang sa isang government agency. Kasi pinapalabas niya na malapit siya kay Mayor Rody.

Kesyo may option daw siya na maging mayor na lang ng Lingayen. Kasi taga-Lingayen siya.

Ano ba talaga heneral na pulitiko?

Pati si gobernador, hilo na sa iyo…

Baka may kinakausap na si gobernador na ibang ka-tandem niya sa 2019 elections.

Paano kung may napili na si gubernador para ka-tandem niya bilang vice governor?

Saan ka pupulutin henral na pulitiko?

Ang siste niyan eh. October 1 to 5 na ang filing ng certificate of candidacy.

Paano kung hindi ka ma-appoint sa gusto mong posisyon?

Paano kung may iba na palang kinausap si gobernador para sa posisyon ng mayor for Lingayen?

Saan ka na pupulutin heneral na pultiko?

ABANTE. Diretso na ang Arthur Celeste for Governor…wala nang atrasan.

Dahil wala nang atrasan…ay naayos na ang pulitika sa Alaminos City.

Si Mayor Arthur Celeste ang mayor ngayon ng Alaminos City.

Si Congressman Boying Celeste ay sa Alaminos na bumoto nitong nakaraang barangay elections.

Ibig sabihin makaka-comply na siya sa residency requirement para maging kandidato for mayor ng Alaminos City na iiwan ni mayor Art.

Tuloy na tuloy na ang Boying Celeste for mayor ng Alaminos City.

At siyempre para makumpleto ang tandem ay nag-agree na si vice mayor Anton Perez na maging ka-tandem ni soon to be Mayor Boying Celeste.

So, Boying Celeste-Anton Perez na ang final na tandem for Alaminos City.

Hindi na po nakikialam si Bok Nani Braganza sa pulitika sa Alaminos City, sa primero distrito o sa provincial politics.

Busy na po siya sa kanyang advocacy sa peace process sa pagitan ng NDF at GRP.

***

Hindi daw totoo na tatakbo si Earl Aquino pra mayor ng Alaminos City.

***

ATRAS. Ano ba itong balita na atras na daw si Mayor Jumel Espino for congressman? Hindi ata ako makapaniwala! Ituloy mo na lang mayor Jumel.

Dahil ba may isang Victor Agbayani ang biglang lumutang na babalik bilang congressman ng 2nd district?

 Ituloy mo pa rin mayor Jumel.

Sa totoo lang, may isa pang kakandidato for congressman ng second district.. isa siyang pulitiko na taga-Lingayen. Secreto daw muna para hindi alatin. Hahaha.

Ang isang nag-hihintay ng basbas para sa congressional seat ng 2nd congressional district sy si BM Raul Sison.

Kung hindi siya mabigyan ng basbas for congressman ay siya ang tatakbo na mayor ng Urbiztondo.

ABANTE. May isang former mayor sa third district ang maaaring subukan na maging congressman.

Actually, matagal nang offer sa kaniya na maging congressman. Twice na siyang kinumbinse … noong 2013 at noong 2016 elections pero hindi diya nagtangkang mag-congressman.

Baka ngayong 2019 ay makukumbinse na siya ng mga leaders ng kanilang distrito para talunin ang Arenas.

May isa pa ngang pulitiko sa Pangasinan ang kinausap na ng Espino group na tumakbo for congressman ng 3rddistrict.

So may kalaban ang Arenas sa third district.

ATRAS. Atras na si Mark Cojuangco for governor, atras na si former congressman Amadito Perez para bumalik bilang congressman.

Ang tatakbo for congressman ng 5th district ay si MonMon Guico.

EDITORIAL: Pag-angkat ng sibuyas hindi makatutulong sa mga magsasaka


Aarangkada na naman ang pamahalaan sa pag-angkat ng mga produktong agrikultura. Hindi pa man nareresolba ang usapin sa pag-angkat ng bigas at galunggong, eto na naman ang pagbabalak ng pamahalaan sa pag-angkat ng sibuyas na galing sa ibang bansa. Tila yata nauuso ang pag-angkat ng mga produktong agrikultura na nakakasira sa produksyon ng mga lokal na magsasaka.

Dahil dito, nababahala ang mga magsasakang nagtatanim ng pulang sibuyas lalo na sa Pangasinan at Nueva Ecija. Imbes na tulungan sila ng pamahalaan na itaas ang antas ng kanilan produksyon, kumukuha ito ng mga produktong makipagkompetensiya sa kanila. Dahil sa usaping ito, umalma ang mga magsasakang kasapi ng Katipunan Ng Mga Samahang Magsisibuyas ng Nueva Ecija (KASAMNE) na binubuo ng 17 kooperatiba na nagtatanim ng sibuyas mula sa mga bayan ng Bongabon, Laur, Gabaldon at Palayan City.

By Virgilio Sar. Maganes

BALUNGAO- After his stint as Deputy Chief of Police in Villasis town, Police Senior Inspector Rodrigo G. Lubiano Jr. was designated as the OIC-Chief of Police here last August 9.

“My new post is challenging as I am now responsible of the police force in this town. We are busy implementing police operations to include anti-criminality activities, community relations, anti-drug operations and implementation of peace and order in the town,” he said during an interview with Northern Watch.

He also said that he was lucky to have the full support of Mayor Philipp Peralta and the other municipal officials of the town.

Lately, Lubiano and his policemen were seen busy conducting information drive on “Clean Riders” and providing assistance in the strengthening of the Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Councils (BADACs) in the town.

Among his accomplishments on anti-criminality activities include the arrest

of Roberto Gaspar Montemayor of Kita-Kita village last August 13 by the Drug Enforcement Team for possessing two sachets containing crystalline substance suspected as shabu or crystal meth;

The others are the following: (more…)
