LOAY, Bohol – The camp of Loay Mayor Rosemarie “May” Lim-Imboy said that she’s grateful and humbled by the people’s support after the latest DYRD phone-in survey as the voters’ preferred next governor in 2016.
Imboy said in an interview that that she needs to work harder for Bohol deserves genuine change through good governance and in people’s lives. And “I am committed to this goals,” she added.
Imboy got 44.1% as against incumbent Gov. Edgar Chatto’s 55.9% of the votes cast, according to two-hour radio survey on Dec. 31, 2015.
Imboy’s camp said that it did not expect that she’s underdog, still she garnered this with only 11 percent gap. It said that Imboy shoud double her work to close the gap come “judgment day,” referring to May 9, 2016 elections.

Imboy said she’ll pursue her campaign for good governance until she’ll get elected. She said the survey result inspire her more as her genuine supporters are growing on her side because they want change in the Capitol governance. “Daghan na’ng mipakita sa ilang suporta moatras na hinoon ko,” referring to earlier black propaganda hurled against her, she said.
