Honyomon! Zayco blows off fellow Negros board members with riches


Who’s the wealthiest member of the Provincial Board in Negros Occidental? It’s Fifth District Board Member Pedro Zayco, by a mile.

Based on his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN) for the year 2016, Zayco has a net worth of P32.5 million.

The politiko is more than twice as rich as the second-placer, Valentino Alonso, who sits as president of Philippine Councilors’ League-Negros Occidental Chapter.

According to a SunStar Online report, Alonso “only” has a net worth of P14.8 million.

For another comparison, the same report said that the head of the Provincial Board himself, Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson, has a net worth of just P4.4 million according to his 2016 SALN.
