Arnie, Peachy reveal 2016 powerhouse team in CSur

NAGA CITY—The gubernatorial tandem of Arnie Fuentebella and Peachy Alfelor bared their powerhouse team at the grand proclamation of candidates before an audience of around 1,000 at The Tent, Avenue Plaza, Saturday, October 10.



Fuentebella and Alfelor, both young scions of prominent political families, branded their campaign as “CamSure Happy,” offering a contrast to the present administration of Gov. Migz Villafuerte.

Fuentebella said that this shared vision has the blessing of Camarines Sur’s political titans, including 1st District Rep. Nonoy Andaya, former Represenatives Luis R. Villafuerte, Nancing Alfelor, Cho Roco, and Noli Fuentebella, and congressional aspirant Ava Arceno.

Rep. Wimpy Fuentebella and former Mayor Gil Basmayor of Minalabac, Camarines Sur served as the masters of ceremonies of the event, in which members of the media, candidates, and supporters were invited.

The Representatives took turns in calling onstage and raising the hands of all the candidates from the 35 municipalities of Camarines Sur in a symbolic gesture of unity.

‘Stop living in fear’

In his speech, Fuentebella said it was time for the residents of Camarines Sur to stop living in fear of the abusive provincial administration.

Citing his personal experience as incumbent mayor of Tigaon, Camarines Sur, he lamented how local officials who had been identified as political opponents had been threatened with lawsuits or suspensions, or were otherwise barred by the provincial government from using public facilities.

Likewise, he mentioned how employees of the provincial government had been complaining of being treated with disrespect by the provincial officials.

“Dapat may saro kitang lider na hararom an pagrespeto sa tawo. Respetuhon an kapitan, respetuhon an barangay council. Respetuhon ta si municipal kagawad. Si mayor, si vice mayor, an mga bokal, an mga deputado ta sinda an mga harigue ta sa provincia.”



Acceptance

In line with Fuentebella’s vision, Peachy Alfelor revealed why she accepted the challenge of running for vice governor, despite not having previous political experience.

The President of University of Northeastern Philippines and Integrated Bar of the Philippines Camarines Sur Chapter President said her decision sprung ultimately from her love for the province.

Apart from this, however, she admitted that she was tired of several things.

“Inaako ko ta pagal na akong magparareklamo sa kawaraan nin direksyon kan satuyang presenting gobyerno probinsyal.Inaako ko ta pagal na akong magparadangog kan reklamo kan mga empleyado sa kapitolyo. Inaako ko ta pagal na ako sa nahihiling kong kapobrehan kan satuyang mga kababayan. Pagal na ako mag para obserbar kan kakulangan nin serbisyo sa probinsya. Inaako ko ta pagal na ako sa pang-aabuso, korapsyon sagkod pagiging poderoso kan liderato sa probinsya sagkod kan saindang mga pag-iriba. Inaako ko ta pagal na ako sa kawaran nin hustisya, respeto asin dignidad kan mga lider sa kapitolyo. Inaako ko ta aram kong igwa akong marhay na magiginibo asin maguiguinibuhan bilang bise-gobernadora sagkod dai ko matitios na mayong gibohon ngonian na may oportunidad na ako na mabago ang destino kan satuyang probinsya.” She said.

‘Unifying factor’

Noli Fuentebella said his son was a unifying factor in inspiring the province’s political bigwigs to work for a common purpose of uplifting the province.

In the past, he said the Fuentebella, Alfelor, and Villafuerte families did not always see eye-to-eye in their plans. However, they have come to realize that the key to Camarines Sur’s success is “cooperation, not separation.”

The former Speaker thus urged Camarines Sur to grab this rare opportunity and work together for a happier Camarines Sur.

“Ano pa ang hahanapon kan provincia?” he asked.

Former Rep. Villafuerte, meanwhile, said the gubernatorial tandem, along the province itself, stand to gain a lot from the vast combined expertise in governance of Andaya, Alfelor, Fuentebella, and himself, who can guide them in deciding on important issues.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
