Isa laban sa lahat? Bacolod’s next council contains lone opposition

0 787

A reelected councilor of Bacolod City faces the tough job of being the city council’s lone opposition.

Wilson Gamboa Jr. admitted as much after taking his oath before Regional Trial Court Judge Eduardo Sayson at the Hall of Justice in Bacolod City last May 24.

“The next three years will be very challenging and pressure-packed,” he said at a thanksgiving event for his supporters.

He does not expect to chair the Committee Ways and Means; and the Committee on History, Culture and Arts, which he used to head.

Gamboa is the lone survivor of Asenso for Better Bacolod-MKK of former Mayor Monico Puentevella during the May 13 midterm elections.

Still, he said that as the lone opposition member, he will oppose any measure disadvantageous to the city government.

Gamboa is on his last term as city councilor. He said he wants to promote the projects such as feeding program, livelihood and skills training, and blood-letting.
