NEWS: “Tit-for-tat” junking remains for Lagunzad, Aala

“Noynoy pa rin, way lubotay, daug o pildi”- Cee O

 april 6

TAGUM CITY – “It’s tit for tat,” said reelectionist City Mayor Rey “Chiong Oy” Uy here in describing his continued junking of co-Liberal partymates, reelectionist Boardmember Antonio Lagunzad and comebacking ex-boardmember Shirley Aala.

Without mincing his words, the city mayor, in an interview, called the two candidates as “opportunists”.

The Rural Urban News tried but failed to reach Lagunzad and Aala for comment.

Uy said: “Gisagop man unta, pero diay mga oportunista! (They were carried by the slate, but they’re actually opportunists)”.

He reiterated again that the Lagunzad was caught with hands inside the cookie jar when he distributed rice “coming from (Congressman) Olano”.

Aala on the other hand was reportedly junked by the mayor after her son, former councilor Tristan “Bong” Aala crossed going to the political fence of Olano (independent Lakas-Kampi-CMD), from the independent group of former Governor Gelacio “Yayong” Gementiza.

The younger Aala deserted his mandate as councilor a year before the last 2007 elections when he went to Japan and worked there. He returned home only last year.

On the other hand, when asked on the presidential bet he is supporting, Mayor Uy said: “Everbody knows my politics- way lubotay, I’m true and true supporting Noynoy, daug o pildi.”

He added that on the contrary it was Lagunzad and Aala who made political lobotomy stabbing him.

Meanwhile, thousands of leaflets of last-termer city councilor and candidate for boardmember Joey Millan (LP) have been distributed by his volunteers in the city.

Surprisingly, Millan’s campaign leaflets however still contain the names of Lagunzad and Aala and no name of Mayor Uy. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
