Baba Yap picks up smoking ban tips from visiting politiko


This town’s secrets to success may be useful for Tagbilaran as well.

Mayor John Geesnell “Baba” Yap served as a gracious host as a fellow politiko paid him a courtesy visit at the city hall.

Vice-Mayor Bentham Dela Cruz of Amlan, Negros Oriental dropped by Yap’s office as he was in town for a visit. The politiko gave him a warm welcome before they sat down for a learning session of sorts.

Dela Cruz apparently shared about Negros Oriental’s progress in implementing an Anti-Smoking Ordinance in Amlan, which has been in place since 2011.
