Level Up

Would a Temporary Restraining Order stop the scheduled annulment of the proclamation of Pryde Henry Teves as the winning gubernatorial candidate in Negros Oriental?

This seems to be a question in the minds of many individuals as the Special Board of Canvassers created by the Commission on Elections En Banc prepares to do just that.

The Special Board of Canvassers is scheduled to convene on Monday at 10 a.m. at the Comelec office in Intramuros, Manila for this purpose alone. Once done, there’s no stopping former Gov. Roel Degamo from returning as provincial governor.

That happening is expected to usher in a number of changes in the Province. There will probably be new heads of offices, new priorities, and new political realignments.

We do, however, hope that the positive changes under the administration of Gov. Pryde Henry Teves will be continued.

Revenue generation seems to be doing well under the Teves administration. Collection of fees at the Perdices Stadium Oval alone had reached P150,000 in the first three weeks alone. Fees for quarrying is also expected to be moving toward its P100 million goal in one year, or easily P8.3 million each month.

On the service side, the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital is on the way to becoming a Level II hospital by December.

We recall the glory days of the NOPH under the leadership of Gov. Emilio Macias II, a medical doctor, when it was certified a Level III hospital, and was even used as an instruction facility for some medical fields of specialization.

There’s also a strong thrust to support the agricultural sector. With inflation projected to reach six percent, family incomes are expected to decrease by 14 percent next year. This is where Governor Teves envisioned that we are self-sufficient as a Province in certain commodities.

We are confident that if we have a new administration again in the Province, the goals initiated in July by Governor Teves can still be achieved, provided the right people with a high level of commitment are in place.

Negros Oriental, after all, is in the list of the country’s 20 Poorest Provinces.
 

We need to level up.
