VG no drug protector - Maraņon


Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said allegations that Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson is a drug protector are not true.

“I can vouch for the fact that the vice governor is not involved in drugs, he is clean,” the governor said, amid allegations lodged against him by some persons.

The United Negros Alliance headed by Marañon and Love Negros are fielding Lacson for governor in the 2019 elections.

The governor said he is confident that Lacson is a sincere, principled and decent person, and a good manager.

“I think he will continue with the projects we started that are good for the people,” the governor said.

Meanwhile, the governor reiterated that while a unity ticket has been achieved for the top posts of Negros Occidental there will still be a lot of electoral battles in the towns and cities.

He said he tried his best to settle differences in Binalbagan town but it looks like Rep. Alejandro Mirasol (Neg. Occ., 5th district) and Mayor Emmanuel Aranda will fight it out for the mayorship of the town.

The governor said her was also informed that Vice Mayor Ella Garcia Yulo may be running for mayor of Moises Padilla.*
