Power-that-be in the pilgrim town Manaoag, Pangasinan told me that Vice Mayor Lito Arenas has moist eye for the mayoralty of the town in the 2016 polls.
He said Arenas’ vice mayoralty tandem would be Former Mayor Nap Sales.
“Big time private contractor si Lito. Si Nap cash strapped na and could not regain his old post as it would cost him an arm and leg to run for the mayorship”.
My source told me Mayor Kim Amador is a formidable force to reckon with.
“His sister, an Undersecretary at the Department of Budget & Management, has been generous in giving projects in Manaoag”.
He told me that Amador’s vice mayoralty tandem will be my friend Councilor Doods Rosario- former ally of mayoralty wannabe, my amiable pal too, Dr. Ming Rosario – a former board member.
Former Mangaldan Mayor Berex Abalos told me he will run for a seat at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (provincial board).
“Maganda iyan, bakit kayong mga taga Mangaldan pinakamalaking bayan sa 4th (Congressional) District outside Dagupan City) wala kayong representation sa Sangguniang Panlalawigan? “ I posed.
He said he would be supported by his business patron Former Congressman Mark Cojuangco, a gubernatorial hopefull.
“Maganda iyan pag BM (board member) na si Berex, siguradong makakakuha na kami ng kontrata thru you from Governor Cojuangco,” a contractor teased
One of the men of Pangasinan Governor Amado T. Espino called me recently belying my column he saw at the internet: “Rep. Celeste vs. Gov. Espino 2016 Congress”.
