By Dominique Gabriel G. Bañaga
After earlier naming Atty. Rayfrando Diaz as his provincial administrator, Negros Occidental Governor-elect Eugenio Jose Lacson revealed more individuals who will be serving within his administration.
Atty. Alberto Nillas, Jr. was named as provincial legal officer, while Dr. Jonathan Lobaton will serve as chief of staff.
In addition, outgoing Negros Occidental third district Rep. Alfredo Benitez will serve as consultant for investor promotions. While in congress, the outgoing legislator chaired the Congressional Committee on Housing.
Earlier, Lacson said he will keep his executive assistants and consultants to a minimum./DGB, WDJ
