Espinos lead PDP-Laban bets in Pangasinan


Lingayen, Pangasinan — Governor Amado I. Espino, III and Congressman Amado T. Espino, Jr., along with other members of the PDP-Laban filed their certificates of candidacy (COCs) for provincial and congressional posts on October 15 and 17 at the Commission on Elections provincial office in Dagupan City.

Governor Espino, PDP-Laban’s standard-bearer and Congressman Espino, the party’s provincial chairman, are both seeking re-election, while former 3rd district Board Member Angel Baniqued, Sr., will run as vice governor.

Bugallon Mayor Jumel Anthony Espino also filed his COC for the 2nd district congressional post, while former DOTr Undersecretary Thomas “Tim” Orbos filed his COC, on the last day of filing, to run for congressman in the first district of Pangasinan.

Running for the provincial board under the country’s ruling political party, are: incumbent Alaminos City councilor Margielou Orange Humilde-Verzosa and Bani incumbent councilor Richard Camba (1st district); incumbent BM Nestor Reyes, and former Urbiztondo Vice Mayor Haydee Soriano (2nd district); incumbent BM Angel Baniqued, Jr., and former 3rd district Rep. Generoso Tulagan, Sr., (3rd district); incumbent BMs Liberato Villegas, and Jeremy Agerico Rosario (4th district); incumbent BM Rosary Gracia Perez-Tababa, and former Binalonan councilor Francis Tinio (5th district); and incumbent BMs Salvador Perez, Jr. and Noel Bince (6th district).

Governor Espino, in an interview with the media during the COC filing, bared that the “Espino-Baniqued” tandem presents the fusion of “youth and experience.”

Citing the wealth of legislative experience of Baniqued, Governor Espino said he is suited to serve as vice governor of the province.

“Patuloy na tinatangkilik at minamahal ng mga Pangasinense, lalo na ng ating mga kabarangay, ang mga programa ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan,” Governor Espino said, as he vowed to expand further the programs and services which are initiated and are sustained by the provincial administration.

Espino also bared his plan for the upcoming big investments in the province, notably the USD1-billion worth of investments of a giant corporation in San Fabian.

“The project will bring in more income and employment for San Fabian and to the province, as a whole,” he said.
