by JOEL CALAMBA ESCOL, Managing Editor

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – Former Phividec Administrator Jose Gabriel “Pompee” Laviña formally filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) Friday by way of substitution.

Mayoral bet Laviña officilly run for mayor under Lakas CMD Party, and he substituted Atty. Florentino Dumlao III who filed his desistance at the City Comelec office in this city.

Laviña’s formal filing pave the way for his plan to lead the city if he wins in the 2022 national and local elections.

Earlier, Laviña told the media he will officially resigned as Phividec administrator after clearing all his duties and responsibilities at the business hub of Misamis Oriental and Cagayan de Oro.

He said he would finish all his duties and responsibilities and then run again for the mayoralty race. A few year’s ago Laviña lost to incumbent city mayor Oscar Moreno with only a slim margin of more than 2000 votes.

He was accompanied by Centrist Democratic Party founder and incumbent Congressman Rufus Rodriguez of the 2nd District of the city. CDP coalesced with local PDP-Laban/Padayon Pilipino local chapters. Rodriguez is seeking reelection for his 3rd term.

Pompee sympathize with Uy family

Meanwhile, after his filing of candidacy as official bearer of Lakas CMP/Padayon Pilipino/CDP coalition for mayor in this city, Pompee answered questions from the media who waited for him.

He said he sympathized with the Uy family in the killing of Roland Sherwin “Tawee” Uy, the eldest son of Laviña’s political rival and mayoralty bet Rep Rolando “Klarex” Uy.

Barangay Kagawad Tawee Uy, 45, was shot dead Thursday afternoon at the family’s quarry business in Barangay Pagatpat, this city. The still unidentified gunman shot him twice in the head, twice in the body and another two bullets in the other fatal points that killed Klarex’s eldest son.

The gunman also shot dead the family’s caretaker at the quarry site. Police authorities also identified him as a certain Samuel Pabalan, 67, and a resident of Carmen, this city.

” Akong ipaabot ang akong pahasubo sa pamilya ni Congressman Klarex Uy. Dili ta malipay sa nahitabo. Atong isalig sa mga awtoridad para madakpan gyud kung kinsa ang responsable nga nagbuhat ana. Atong iampo pud sa ginoo nga hatagan ta ug kalinaw dinhi sa atong dakbayan kay peace and order ang importante,” said mayoralty bet Pompee Laviña during an interview with the media.

Laviña also to radio broadcasters in the city to be sensitive enough and avoid commentaries, and also understand the plight of the Uy family.

” Akong hangyo sa mga naa sa radyo, sa mga komentarista nga sensitibo ta sa nahitabo kang Conressman Klarex kay dili mana nato sila personal nga kontra, kaatbang lang sa politika. Ug atong sabton nga kita tanan tawo ug atong sabton and nahitabo kanila,” Pompee said.
