In Mariveles town, the four newly-elected barangay Captains here have immediately expressed full support to the administration of incumbent mayor Jesse Concepcion.
Concepcion said Of the 18 reelectionist barangay captains in this town, four of them lost to the post, including Joey Carandang, president of Association of barangay Captains and Ex-officio member of the provincial board.
Carandang filed election protest against newly elected chairman Filomeno “Joey” Borromeo, Jr . Borromeo garnered 1,423 votes while Carandang got 1,395 votes in barangay Malaya, whose area is considered a rich barangay due to presence of Bataan Freeport.
“The four newly-elected barangay chairmen, although they belonged to other political party, had immediately come to me and expressed their support to our administration for the sake of their barangays and the town of Mariveles,” said Mayor Concepcion.
“A number of giant companies had already talking with us to signify their intention to invest in Bataan and this will generate thousands more new employment,” added the young governor.-Mar T Supnad
