PIA Press Release

Aquino's visit reunites Davao Norte leaders

by Noel Baguio

Tagum City, Davao del Norte (23 September) -- President Benigno Simeon Aquino III's visit in Sto. Tomas this province last week reunited the political leaders of the province into one receiving party, four months after the recent elections.

Local leaders coming from various political camps seemingly held a reunion of sort as they came together to welcome the President who visited a tribal housing project in Sitio Talus of Barangay San Jose and met with beneficiaries of the government's Kalahi-CIDSS, 4Ps and SEA-K projects in Southern Mindanao.

Leading the pack was Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario, who was the only governor in Davao region who supported the candidacy of President Aquino during the national elections in May.

Del Rosario expressed his satisfaction with the overwhelming show of support of the local leaders.

He told President Aquino the strong presence of the local leaders signify their unity and all-out support to the programs and projects of the President, as well as their shared vision for the development of the country.

"Mr. President the strong presence of our local officials today indicates that we are one in supporting all the programs and projects of your administration," he said.

An hour before the President's chopper arrived in Sitio Talus, the governor first paid a courtesy call at the Municipal Hall, where he was cordially welcomed by Mayor Maximo Estela.

It was the first time Gov. del Rosario and Mayor Estela got together since the election period.

The elections put another dent on their relationship, when the governor supported the rival candidate of the mayor.

Joining them later at the mayor's office were District 1 Congressman Anton Lagdameo, Tagum City Mayor Rey Uy, Panabo City Mayor Jose Silvosa, New Corella Mayor Nestor Alcoran, B.E. Dujali Mayor Lolital Moral, Kapalong Mayor Edgardo Timbol, Carmen Mayor Mar Perandos, IGCS Vice Mayor Al David Uy and Provincial Board Members Daniel Lu and Shirley Aala.

They were also joined by Compostela Valley Gov. Arthur Uy and Vice Gov. Ramil Gentugaya, as well as Laak Mayor Reynaldo Navaro.

The group later formed a motorcade going to Sitio Talus to welcome the President. (PIO-DavNor) [top]
