Regional Trial Court executive judge Marietta Homena-Valencia administered the oath of office of the local officials led by mayor William Sucgang Lachica and vice mayor Madeline Ang Regalado, who both ran under the banner of Bigkis Pinoy Party.
Clad in Barong Tagalog, Lachica thanked his supporters and his family who worked hard for his candidacy. The new chief local executive, accompanied by his wife, children and siblings in the inauguration rites, delivered his 15-minute inaugural address urging his constituents to support the projects and programs in the next three years.
Meanwhile, Vice mayor-elect Regalado also vowed to promote transparency and accountability in public service as she embarked for her new legislative job as regular presiding officer of the Kalibo Sangguniang Bayan. Regalado was elected councilor in 2007 and ran for vice mayor last May 10, 2010 elections.
