‘Bacolod back on track'
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday said the new set of city officials have committed to work together to put Bacolod City back on track.

Leonardia said Bacolod Rep. Greg Gasataya has promised to see to it that his proposed Bacolod Economic Highway will be pursued, and he believes the project will be completed during his term as congressman.

The Bacolod Economic Highway will cost the government about P790 million, he said. It is a stretch of 21 kilometers that will start from Sum-ag, Cabug, Felisa, Handumanan, Mansilingan, Estefania, Mandalagan up to Bata. moremoremore

create wealth for city
BY CARLA GOMEZ

Senator Franklin Drilon yesterday offered to help the city's officials push for the conversion of the old Bacolod airport site, which he called an idle asset of the national government, into an economic hub that produces wealth for Bacolodnons.

Senators Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, Manny Pacquiao and Drilon were among the guests at the inauguration of the city officials led by Mayor Evelio Leonardia at the Bacolod Government Center last night.

Drilon said there is a new dawn in Bacolod because, for the first time in many years it has a united political leadership, with Mayor Evelio Leonardia, Rep. Greg Gasataya, Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran, and the bulk of the members of the city council belonging to the same group. moremoremore

IN WAR AGAINST DRUGS
Fama to report to Duterte
‘uncooperative' officials
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE & JUDY F. PARTLOW

Philippine National Police acting provincial director of Negros Oriental, Senior Supt. Harris Fama, will submit to President Rodrigo Duterte a list of barangay captains and elected public officials in Negros Oriental, who failed or purposely did not attend the first anti-drug summit in Dumaguete City Tuesday.

Fama said he is not a child, but he will definitely make a report to the President, after he was asked what will happen to elected public officials, who did not honor the invitation of the PNP despite proper notice.

He said he can only suspect some of them could be users, pushers or protectors of groups or individuals involved in the illegal drug trade and other illegal activities. .
