TACLOBAN CITY Leyte, Jan. 7 (PIA) -– Among members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Leyte, only one, Atty. Roque A. Tiu got perfect attendance in 2011.

The report stated that the total number of sessions conducted in 2011 was 48 and Board Member Tiu of the first District of Leyte was present in all the sessions. It was observed that BM Tiu also had perfect attendance in 2010.
“I see to it that I don’t accept commitments on Tuesdays which will deter me from being able to attend the regular sessions of the Leyte SP,” BM Tiu said when interviewed by PIA.
