DAGUPAN CITY –Political newbie Mark Lambino  substituted  for retired police colonel Paterno “Pat” Orduña as the vice governorship tandem of gubernatorial candidate Art Celeste.

Orduna withdrew his candidacy on October 23 for health reasons, as his doctor advised him against running because of rigors of campaigning in the entire province. Orduna underwent a heart bypass surgery some years ago.

The following day after Orduna withdrew, Lambino filed his candidacy.

Mark Lambino is a son Administrator and Chief Executive Officer of the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority and Presidential Adviser for Northern Luzon lawyer Raul Lambino.

“He is qualified in terms of education. He even studied in prestigious universities,” a supporter of the vice governorship bet told this paper in the vernacular.

Lambino finished Bachelor’s Degree in Geography at the University of the Philippines  and has post graduates studies at the Asian Institute of Management, UP-Diliman – Institute of Small Scale Industries Major Management Programs, and Ateneo de Manila University.

He accomplished his primary school from Mother Goose Special School Systems, Inc. here and his secondary school as a scholar from the Philippines Science High School – Diliman Campus.

Celeste told this paper the tandem between him and Lambino was already final although the last day of substitution of candidates is still on November 29.

Section 33 of Resolution No. 10420 of the Commission on Election says the substitute of a candidate who died, withdrew his candidacy, or was disqualified may file a COC for the office affected on or before November 29, 2018 so that the name of the substitute will be reflected on the official ballots. In the same Resolution promulgated October 1, the Comelec said the substitute for a candidate, who died or disqualified by final judgment, may file a COC up to mid-day of Election Day. This would be acceptable, provided that the substitute candidate and substituted candidate have the same surnames.

The two were were accompanied by Fifth District congressional bet and Binalonan Mayor Ramon “Monmon” Guico, III, Sto. Tomas mayoralty and vice mayoralty bets Ely Arciaga Ramos and Bemjamin Oculto, Jr, respectively, Sta. Barbara mayoralty candidate and Vice Mayor Joel delos Santos, candidates for the provincial board like Nicholi Jan Louie Sison of the 5th District, hundreds of their supporters, and media men who partook their lunch together at two well known restaurants in Barangay Tapuac here.

Lambino cited  his working experiences as a technical staff of core industries in the Subic-Clark Alliance for Development Council, Clark Freeport Zone, executive assistant in the office of the chairman, chief executive officer Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, and as private management consultant of various groups in the private sector.

He is the son of Lambino who is known as the one who created the Celeste for governor movement after being given the imprimatur of the power that be in Malacanang to contest the “hegemony” of Governor Amado I. Espino, III and his father and namesake 5th District Representative Amado, Jr in the vote – rich Pangasinan province.
