DAGUPAN CITY, Feb. 9 – The officers and members of the newly reorganized Liberal Party in Dagupan City are set to take their oath sometime next month before Department of Transportation and Communications Secretary Mar Roxas.

Also invited during the induction program set in Dagupan City is Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo, also an LP high official.

Dagupan City Vice Mayor Belen Fernandez is chairman of the LP in Dagupan with former Mayor Alipio Fernandez Jr. as president.

The induction program for officers and members of the LP chapter was discussed during a meeting called by Vice Mayor Fernandez that also filled up the remaining slots available in the 25-man LP city directorate.

With the filling up of the vacant slots in the local LP directorate, the local LP chapter has announced it is now ready to recruit more members who will adhere to the programs and projects of President Benigno Aquino III, titular head of the LP.

Officers and members of the LP city chapter have decided to meet every first Monday of the month at the Fishpond Resort of former Mayor Fernandez, its permanent headquarters, to discuss party matters.

Vice Mayor Fernandez said the LP chapter will consistently push all the programs and projects of President Aquino such as on transparency, good governance and versus graft and corruption.

Those who attended the meeting were Councilors Luis Samson Jr., vice president for the public sector; Councilor Karlos Reyna, deputy executive secretary; Councilor Alvin Coquia, assistant treasurer; Councilor Alfie Fernandez and former Councilor Jose Netu Tamayo, legal counsels and others.

The other officers of the LP chapter are former Councilor Farah Marie Decano, executive secretary; Councilor Jeslito Seen, treasurer; Councilor Librada Reyna and former Councilor Alfredo Quinto, auxiliary members; and former Councilor Michael Fernandez, press relations officer.

The reorganization was intended to strengthen the ranks of the LP in the city so that it can extend its all-out support to all the programs and projects of President Benigno Aquino III.

The LP is a potent force to reckon with in the Dagupan City Council as it controls the majority of the seats, with at least eight elected councilors, including the presiding Officer Vice Mayor Fernandez.

On the other hand, the Nacionalista Party only won two seats in the last election. (PNA)
