Gov. Tallado suspends Vinzons mayor Ang; swears in acting mayor, vice mayor

VINZONS, Camarines Norte-- Vice Mayor Radames Ferrer Herrera assumed office today after he was  sworn into office as acting mayor noontime today (April 15).

He took his oath before governor Edgardo Tallado at the Provincial Capitol at around 12:45 pm.

Also in attendance were punong barangays.

Herrera's oath-taking comes after the suspenson order against mayor Agnes Ang was served at her office in the town hall of Vinzons.

Since Ang was not personally present to receive the notice, service of the order was effected by posting the same at the entrance of the Vinzon's Municipal Hall.

It was Rey Pajarillo, the provincial jail warden, who was directed by Tallado to serve the suspension order.

It will be recalled that Sangguniang Panlalawigan Resolution 159-2015, which recommended Ang's suspension, was approved yesterday by the governor.

It put the mayor under preventive suspension for 60 days. 

Aside from Herrera, topnotcher councilor Raul Banal was also sworn into office as acting town vice-mayor.

Ang, who is presently in Manila to attend the League of Municipalities convention, cannot be reached by BICOL STANDARD.COM for her comment on this development.
