Bing Leonardia asks Tugade: What happens after May 31?


Mayor Bing Leonardia always wants to be a step ahead in planning local policies, so he’s seeking an early clarification.

The Bacolod mayor wrote to Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade to ask what his plans are for sea and air travel for June onwards, demanding if they can talk via video conference for this policy.

“What happens after May 31? Will commercial inter-island sea travel between Negros Occidental/Bacolod City and other places now resume?,” the politiko wrote.

Instead, the mayor actually begged these inter-island travels not to be resumed regardless of quarantine category, saying he will agree to pre-arranged trips to and from Negros Occidental towns and provinces as a compromise.
