By Dominique Gabriel G. Bañaga
Don Salvador Benedicto Vice Mayor Nehemiah Joe dela Cruz yesterday denied report his mother, Cynthia dela Cruz, was rushed to the hospital after she lost her bid for Barangay Igmayaan captain.
He called it “fake news.”
“As a matter of fact, our mother is busy at our house in Barangay Sum-ag, Bacolod City preparing for the fiesta,” the town official said.
The elder dela Cruz, a former town vice mayor, lost to incumbent Barangay Igmayaan Captain Rogelio Asin.
The vice mayor pointed out their family’s other successes in the elections, noting, “We recovered two barangays in Kumaliskis and Bunga.”
He added, however, “Not all puroks are ours.”/DGB, WDJ
