Nueva Vizcaya provincial board suspends Lakas-CMD mayor

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (30 October) -- A town mayor here has been suspended by the provincial board for allegedly buying a bus without the authorization of their municipal board.

Administration mayor Florante Gerdan (Lakas-CMD) of Sta. Fe town has been preventively suspended for 30 days by the sangguniang panlalawigan after councilor Evelyn Delim in August this year filed a complaint before the provincial board questioning the propriety of Gerdan's purchase of the said bus using town funds which she claimed was done without proper bidding and knowledge of the municipal council.

Delim also claimed that the P700,000 bus should have an appropriation ordinance or a resolution from the municipal council.

The provincial board voted 5-3, with one abstention and four absent on the preventive suspension of Gerdan Wednesday (October 25).

A first-term mayor, Gerdan's suspension was issued amid an existing temporary restraining order issued by a regional trial court seeking to temporarily stop the hearing of his administrative case before the provincial board where majority of its members are in the opposition. (PIA-Nvizcaya) [top]
