Bacolod Mayor Alfredo Abelardo “Albee” Benitez called on Bacolodnons to vote for barangay and Sagguniang Kabataan candidates who will not abuse the use of government funds and will spend wisely for the good of their constituents.

The mayor issued the call on his radio program “Isugid mo Kay Mayor” aired on FMR Bacolod 91.1 on Sunday morning, October 29.

“It is very important to choose the right leaders,” Benitez said.

Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson, on the other hand, called on voters to keep the elections peaceful and credible.

“Go out and vote and respect the results,” Lacson said.

Benitez, on his radio program, also said he would remain apolitical in Monday’s polls as required by the law.

Lt. Col Ronnie Brillo of the Bacolod City Police Office, who was one the guests on the mayor’s show, also assured that the Bacolod police would remain neutral in Monday’s polls.

He said the BCPO is 100 percent ready for Monday’s polls and police assistance desks would be set up outside voting centers.

The BCPO also has quick response teams to respond to calls for assistance, he added.

Election Officer Kathrina Trinio-Caña said poll results for the smaller barangays in Bacolod could be out by 10 p.m. Monday and for the bigger barangays by early Tuesday morning.*
