Vincent F accessing Anton’s kitty to benefit all DavNor barangays

march 10-16, 2011

To call SP members for a meeting soon

All and not only District 2 barangays would benefit from the congressional funds of 2nd District Congressman Anton Lagdameo Jr while these funds are currently being accessed no less than by the congressman’s cousin, Liga ng Barangay provincial president Vincent “Enteng” Floirendo.

Floirendo is pushing four approved resolutions of the provincial league of barangays requesting Cong. Lagdameo.

One resolution asked for the congressman’s financial assistance for the provincial liga congress, while two other resolutions asked for Cong. Lagdameo’s representation to obtain farm implements and medicines “to be distributed provincewide”.

The last resolution asked for the congressman’s assistance to obtain funds from the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) amounting to P2 million for the construction of the wasteway of Liboganon river irrigation system for Barangay Gabuyan in Kapalong.

In an interview, Boardmember Floirendo said that he would be calling for get-together meeting with members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan “earlier” than December.

Inquired about his brother, former Cong. Antonio “Tonyboy” Floirendo Jr, he said that his Manong Tonyboy has been advising him during their casual talks.

“But he doesn’t tell me what to do,” he said adding that he is moving by his own way of knowing and serving barangays in his initial days as neophyte legislator-barangay representative.
The former congressman has been known as the political kingpin in the Floirendo family.
Vincent is the barangay chairman of the Barangay Adecor in Kaputian District of the Island Garden of Samal.
He was elected unopposed by the municipal and city barangay chairmen during the parliamentary election of the Liga ng Barangay last December.

Earlier reports said that Vincent wanted to follow the footsteps of his Manong Tonyboy, who first became a boardmember before becoming the 2nd District congressman for three straight terms. His first cousin Anton Lagdameo is current successor of Tonyboy.

Mayor Rey Uy, a close friend of Tonyboy, earlier said that Tonyboy would concentrate in managing the Floirendo businesses, the biggest of which is Southeast Asia’s largest banana producer Tadeco. Antonio Floirendo Corporation (Anflocor) is currently completing the construction of the huge Abreeza Mall in Davao City in partnership with the Ayala malls. (cha monforte)
