Candidiates for Governor, Vice Governor and Congress in Marinduque
Pugutan-Kon sinong candidato ang matalo siya ay pinogutan ng mga voters!
(The voters will be cutting the heads of losing candidates in this coming election)
Yesterday, I attended a Filipino-American Party in Mountain View, California. There were several Filipino-Americans( some are dual citizens) and a few members of Marinduque International,Inc. that also attended the party. They were asking me who are the candidates and the issues of this coming May 10 election. Since, I am not sure myself who the candidates are, I browsed at Wikipedia and here is the information they were asking. Wikipedia has also information on the candidates for mayors, vice mayor in the six towns of Marinduque, as well as candidates for provincial board members in the three district of the province. It is just too long to list.
Gubernatorial, Vice gubernatorial and Congressional election in Marinduque for May 10, 2010.
Incumbent governor Jose Antonio N. Carrion will run for his second term as governor of Marinduque. This election, he will run under the Lakas-Kampi-CMD banner, he run previously as an independent on the last election.
Incumbent congresswoman Carmencita Reyes is allowed to run for a second term, but chose to run for governor. She was formerly a member of Lakas-CMD but, became an independent candidate due to the Carrion's membership of Lakas-Kampi-CMD. Despite of all of this she was the guest candidate of the Liberal party.
Former Sta. Cruz mayor and businessman Wilfredo Red will run again for governor. He failed to win the previous election and was in the last place in the race for governor which was won by Carrion.
Incumbent vice-governor Tomas Pizarro will run for his second term as vice-governor of Marinduque. He was a member of Kampi during the last election. He defected to the Nacionalista Party for this election.
Incumbent sangunniang panlalawigan member Jasper Lim is allowed to run for a third term, but chose to run for vice-governor. He was bannered under his brother and former Liga ng mga Barangay sa Pilipinas president James Marty Lim's Alliance for Barangay Concerns party. He is also the running mate of Carrion under the Lakas-Kampi-CMD
With Carmencita Reyes running for governor, her son and former congressman Edmundo O. Reyes is expected to reclaim his seat. He defected to the Liberal party after Carrion's membership to Lakas-Kampi-CMD party. He did not run in the previous election because he was ineligible to run because he already claimed the three term limit.
Provincial Administrator and Carrion ally Lord Allan Jay Velasco will also run for the congressional seat, despite having no previous experience in Marinduque politics but, as provincial administrator, Velasco is the Lakas-Kampi-CMD nominee for the said congressional elections.
The primary issue for this upcoming elections is the ongoing power crisis happening at Marinduque. Sorry losing candidates there will be no pork barrel for you!!
