VM Veloso saves city from Sen. Zubiri's fund exclusion.
« on: October 14, 2007, 03:41:17 PM »
As posted in The Bohol Standard a weekly publication in Bohol. "Breaking News!"

Acting Mayor Jose Veloso and two councilors saved Tagbilaran City from exclusion from the P50 million windfall that Sen. Miguel "Migz" Zubiri announced last Saturday to be distributed to the provincail government and  47 towns in Bohol.

Their representation secured for the city hall P2 million from the Mindanao senator who announced in the grand cooperative gathering at the Bohol Cultural center to give P3 million to the provincial government and 1 million to each of the 47 towns.

For unknown reason, Zubiri did not mention Tagbilaran City in his speech there.
Vice Mayor Veloso, who has acted as mayor since the other Friday on account of Mayor Dan Lim's travel abroad, and Councilors Edgar Kapirig and Bebiano Inting thus dashed to theMetro Centre where the senator met with the local press after his applauded appearance at the cultural center.

There Kapirig and Inting of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) cooperative committee joined Zubiri, Cooperative Development Authority Chairperson Lecira Juarez and the cooperative leaders in Bohol in discussing the proposed amendments to Republic Act 6938, otherwise known as the Cooperative Code of the Philippines. Zubiri chairs the senate cooperative Committee.

The acting mayor members of the SP and other city officials already scheduled in the morning of the same day a clean-up at the Mabaw Reef, which is declared a marine sanctuary and eco-tourism seawater, off Ubujuan and Taloto.

City hall as yet to identify the project to be funded out of Zubiri's P2 million, which now forms part of the senator's P52 million total reward (Including the P1 million for each 47 towns and P3 million for capitol) for placing fourth in Bohol in the May 14 electionfor senators.

While many attributed the "sudden inclusion" of P2 million for the city in the senator's "Payback package" for Bohol to the representation of Veloso bolstered by the presence of the two councilors, that Zubiri is also a close friend of the vice mayor's brother named Dominic.

Where does he get all these money for the "gratitude package"? Are all senators given money to do and to distribute to whomever they please?

I like Migz, he has a good heart, although not always in the right place. He's very cute too, not like his mean auntie Malu Fernandez.
