Timpuyog wins mock election


Baguio City-- In what appears to be the outcome of the upcoming May 10 election, the Timpuyog ti Baguio candidates led by mayoralty candidate Mauricio G. Domogan  and congressional candidate Bernardo M. Vergara showed up with more than 5,000 volunteer campaigners in a show of force at the Athletic Bowl for a rally that can be dubbed as a dress rehearsal for the group’s miting de avance on May 8, 2010.

This development came two days after the Timpuyog triumvirate of Vergara (for congressman) Domogan (for mayor) and vice mayoralty candidate Danny Farinas surprisingly won a mock election at the People’s Park conducted by followers of the opposing party. The mock election was obviously meant to favor a group and was actually designed to condition the mind of the electorate but to their surprise, people went on to vote for the three Timpuyog candidates to the dismay of the organizers.

Baguio City--  The development of the city’s public market is the best way to clean it up and address the traffic congestion in the central business district, mayoralty candidate Mauricio G. Domogan said this week and he will make it a priority when he returns as the city’s chief executive.

Domogan however said that the legitimate market vendors should be partners in any development initiative for the public market. “We cannot neglect the vendors. We should negotiate and strike a compromise with them including the Uniwide Corporation”. He however emphasize that it should now be the city that should finance the development and the only reason for Uniwide’s involvement is its having won the market development contract in 1995. This is the only way we can settle the market development problem,” he explained.

The city had a development plan for the public market in 1995 when Domogan was the city mayor. The matter however was brought to court by some vendors and it was stalled.  After more than a decade, the court finally ruled in favor of the city. The vendor appealed the case and is still pending in the Court of Appeals.
