TAGBILARAN CITY – The group of Congessman Aris Aumentado that includes incumbent mayors and former mayors has formed what they called “ABC” triumvirate as its official candidates for board members representing the second district. “ABC” stand for Abapo, Boniel and Camacho. They are incumbent board member Atty. Tomas D. Abapo, Jr., Mayor Nino Rey Boniel and Donglee Camacho.
This developed during a meeting yesterday in this city when incumbent Mayor Moloy Apat of Dagohoy proposed that Donglee Camacho be nominated for the board member candidacy, which the group willingly accepted. A group member said that the triumvirate is a formidable force on May 9, 2016 general elections.
The decision was also considered since only incumbent Board member Atty. Tomas D. Abapo, Jr. has remained loyal to Aumentado’s group and did not turn turncoat, he said. Incumbent board member Gerardo “Gerry” Garcia was not anymore to belong to the group after he declared recently that he will throw his hat into the congressional race against Aumentado.
Incumbent Mayor Nino Rey of Bien-Unido town is already graduating from being a municipal mayor since this is his last term that ends on June 30, 2016.
He is also groomed to be a board member representing Aumentado’s district because of his vast experience in local governance. He’s the son of former mayor Cosme Boniel of this town, they said.
Donglee Camacho, one of the trusted lieutenants of Aumentado in delivering and serves as go-between the constituents of the congressman, along with Mr. Boy Pernia, one of the brains that catapulted the young Aumentado to the House of Representatives.
The younger Donglee Camacho is the son of former board member Dr. Camacho who served for two terms before he died of lingering ailment. Dr. Camacho’s undying determination and dedication to service are add on to his credentials to be a potential become a working board member of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, the group said.
Camacho can count on the towns of Clarin, Getafe ug Sagbayan of the 14 towns of the district as his bailiwicks to win the election, they said., (rvo)
