Lawyer Ronnie Dadivas took his oath of office before outgoing Capiz Governor Antonio del Rosario as the new mayor of Roxas City.

Dadivas’ oathtaking was held Thursday at Governor’s Mansion in Barangay Lanot. He was joined by his family, friends and former co-workers at the Roxas City Hall and Capiz provincial capitol.

Dadivas, a candidate of the Liberal Party, defeated former City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council Roberto Rommel Lastimoso by a margin of 4,000 votes during the May 13 midterm elections.

His running-mate, reelectionist Vice Mayor Erwin Sicad and seven city councilors Jericho Angel Celino, John Paul Arcenas, Cesar Yap Jr., Trina Almalbis-Ignacio, Cora Balgos-Tiangco, Gary Potato, and lawyer Paul Ivan Baticados also won.

Dadivas vowed to push for reforms in the benefit of the people of Roxas City.
