Mula sa Manila Standard Today: House tackles proposal to create Angara town
The father-and-son tandem of Senator Edgardo Angara and Rep. Juan Eduardo is pushing for the passage of a bill that will create a ninth municipality in Aurora province and jumpstart its development.
House Bill 3255, creating a municipality to be named after Lt. Gov. Juan C. Angara from nine remote towns, is now pending before the House committee on local government chaired by Negros Oriental Rep. George Arnaiz.
The measure stated that establishing the municipality will enable residents of the barangays to chart their own destiny.
Critics have slammed the proposal, claiming it will just perpetuate the Angaras as a political dynasty and it would divide this town which is not an Angara bailiwick.
Senator Angara said the new municipality is named in honor of his fatherâ€™s service to the province as the longest serving mayor of Baler under the Commonwealth and lieutenant governor of the sub-province of Aurora. â€œIf you will not name the new town after him, after whom will you have it named?â€ he asked.
He also said the barangays covered by the measure have long been neglected. The current Aurora governor is the senatorâ€™s sister, Bellaflor Angara-Castillo. (Ferdie G. Domingo)
