ABRECO General Assembly a free for all

Bangued, Abra. Consumers who attended the supposed General Assembly yesterday were dismayed about the outcome. Majority who were present didn’t think the forum did any good to solve the on going issues of ABRECO.

According to our sources the open forum became heated and full of political color as the Lunas (led by Atty. Hans Luna) dominated the said meeting. Atty. Luna again questioned the SP resolution authrozing Governor Takit Bersamin of the use of the Province calamity fund to pay ABRECO’s dues to Aboitiz.

Also yesterday, several ABRECO empoyeed tendered their resignation including the Vice Mayor of Bangued, Allan Seares’  wife Ma. Dympha Seares. On her posting at abrenian.com, Ms. Seares has refuted all allegations leveled against her and her husband. She challenged her detractors to show proof of wrongdoings on their part. “I know my resignation will again be perceived by our detractors as an act of cowardice or as an escape and will be seen as an example of “jumping off the ship when it’s sinking” but i refuse to accept that on the contrary there is this belief of seafarers that when the ship starts to sink some baggage should be thrown out to make it stable again so it can weather the waves, i got the point there’s too much overboard so i needed to get out so that the ship can be afloat.” She said.

There has been raging debates among Abrenians all over the world on what went wrong with ABRECO. Some has argued that the problem did not happen overnight instead it was brewing even before the current management took over. Others disagree. Who ever is right remains to be seen.

Meanwhile consumers are left exasperated as they are caught in this unfortunate gridlock as Abra officials continue finger-pointing at each other.


I’m reposting Pedro Abreno’s Feedback on the General Assembly:

I am one with you, CONCERNED MEMBER. I was at the forum organized by Carmelita Bersalona, Pura Sumangil, the priests and many others. I had every reason not to attend but I consider the problem of grave importance. What can be a more basic necessity than electricity? We have been robbed of the taxes that we paid, many of us have been robbed of their lives and property, and all of us have been robbed of our dignity and self-respect as ABRENOS. Now, we are being robbed of our right to be provided electricity by the same species of people – the hopelessly corrupt and the greedy.
What happened at the DWCB gym yesterday reinforces my belief that we must keep politicians out if we truly want to find a lasting solution to this problem. I have no political alliances because my only alliance is to truth, integrity and respect for the rights of everyone. I did not even know Hans Luna from Adam until he dishonored himself by what he did in front of over 400 consumer/members and an equal number of students, faculty members and priests.
I will never forget when he strode to the michrophone and asked the moderator if he could speak. Having been given the go-ahead, he introduced himself as Hans Luna and said that he is 29 years of age. After that, he lambasted Carmelita Bersalona, Pura Sumangil and even a priest whose name escapes me at this moment. He was all sound and fury and bravado if you will. He said that he wanted the ABRECO management to be changed. Well, who doesn’t. But we are a government of laws and not of men. ABRECO, for all its shortcomings has its own constitution and by-laws and no amount of rabble-rousing coming from his brother, Mayor Ryan and his lap dog, Syd Vasquez can change that.
Is this the kind of person who is aspiring to represent us in Congress? He has no sense of shame. He has misplaced his moral compass and his respect for elders and even priests is gone. It was simply a dumb posture normally taken by born villains. He disrespected himself and he also disrespected us.
Bravado is a texture of character. It does not at all indicate bravery; it implicates quite the opposite. On the other hand the bearers of truth (Carmelita Bersalona, Pura Sumangil and the priest whose name I can’t remember) need no attractive packaging, no sugar-coating, no gloss, no bravado.
Hans Luna was trying to impose his will on those present in the forum and so was his brother, Mayor Ryan, Mayor Marco Bautista and Syd Vasquez. It did not look good and it certainly left a bad taste in the mouth. I believe the people present there, mostly elderly, are not dumb. They will never allow leader wannabes to lead them down the wrong road.
At a time when truth, honesty, morality and dignity have been sacrificed on the altar of personal gain, comfort and expediency, our acts will define who and what we are. Only a citizenry willing to enforce accountability through public clamor and protests in all its forms can end the culture of impunity, be it murder or plunder. The instinct to look the other way erodes the last vestige of any sense of community among us.
As the old song goes, “mountains crumble and rivers run dry”. Change is inevitable. The management of ABRECO must go and they must be held accountable for the mess. Only if these people are placed behind bars can we really learn from this. We must replace them with honest and capable people. To do that, we must keep politicians out together with their evil influence.
A democratic impulse has started to exist and ABRENOS are going to find a way to be heard in new and imaginative ways. Vaclav Havel is right, “Hard as dying for freedom is, even harder is living for it. Hard as it is to blaze forth like a meteor, harder it is to shine like a beacon”. Let us not be afraid. Let us remain steadfast. Let us build shelters in our hearts and havens in our minds. Let us work to be a quiet resplendence emanating through the dark..
I hope to see the rise of more courageous, decent and incorruptible men and women of conscience who will defy moral evil and ambivalence in defense of truth, social justice, godliness and genuine democracy. The price of democracy is personal courage and eternal vigilance. It is written, “For every right that you cherish, you have a duty which you must fulfill. For every hope that you entertain, you have a task that you must perform. For every good that you wish to preserve, you will have to sacrifice your comfort and your ease”. Mabuhay ang ABRENO! mabuhay ang ABRA!

  2. a very articulate and i assume well intended opinion. but let us not forget that everybody gets tired and hopeless at times. we are all aware of people saying, “awan met pagbaliwan ti probinsiya uraw siasino ti agtug-tugaw”. it’s the painful reality, is’nt it?

    • My friend, JERRY, I understand you fully well. It is indeed difficult to hope when time and again our leaders who are supposed to lead us to progress painfully disappoint us. Let us be reminded of the rule of 3. We can survive without air for 3 minutes, without water for 3 days, without food for 3 weeks, but without HOPE, we will die today.There is always hope, my friend and it will begin with us. In God’s time, we will get our wish for ethical governance and true democracy. Let us not waste time. The time to act is NOW. Start by educating your family and friends about the need to choose leaders wisely and the need to be vigilant at all times. I wish you all the best.

      • Petilla wants NEA to intervene in electric coops
        by Alvin Elchico, ABS-CBN News

        MANILA, Philippines – Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla proposed the conversion of the National Electrification Administration (NEA) into a governing body with powers to review and actually intervene in the management and financial affairs of electric cooperatives.

        Petilla raised the suggestion after the Abra Electric Cooperative (ABRECO) faces another disconnection by February 7 or 8 if it is not able to pay P16 million in overdue payment to its supplier and National Grid Corp.

        Another P10 million is needed a few days from Feb. 7 and yet another P16 million in overdue amount will have to be raised by ABRECO. On top of this monthly obligations, ABRECO also owes PSALM P355 million in previous loans.

        According to Petilla, even the cooperative’s supplier Aboitiz Power is now giving up due to defaults in payment.

        Petilla still hopes the coop gets a weekly contract so as not to plunge Abra in darkness. But he said if the people of Abra will allow the DOE, he would want a new management team to take over ABRECO.

        ABRECO is not under the NEA but the CDA or the Cooperative Development Authority.

      • My friend, I was there. It is a first hand account of what transpired in the forum. I have no reason whatsoever to misinform the public. By the way, my voice will not be stilled. It will rise from my breast even when I feel so alone, and my heart will give it all the fire that callous cowards deny it. It matters little to me if I am derided or doubted because the truth, only the unvarnished truth will set us free. As to my identifying myself, all I can say is, “There is a time for everything under the heavens”.

    • Of course Madam you can share the quotation on FB. Those were the words of Walter Lippman. I borrowed his words to stress to our beloved fellow Abrenos that we have to fight for our right to a better life. Our present leaders will not give it to us on a silver platter. I hope many more of our people will be inspired by it. May God bless us all.

      Posted by pedro abreno | January 29, 2013, 2:42 pm
      • KITA KITS, I am glad you were also there at the forum. May I know the other party whom you claim I did not write about? The only invited discussants who attended aside from Mayor Ryan Luna and Mayor Marco Bautista were Vice-Governor Somera and Serafin Alzate who represented Gov. Bersamin. These people were INVITED to find out how they can help solve the problem of mismanagement of ABRECO that has led to two blackouts. I believe we atill live in a democracy and no one, but no one, no matter how high his station in life may be, has the right to impose his will on the majority. Vice-Governor Somera spoke and I respect whtever he said. I may not agree with everything he said but I respect it. Serafin Alzate also read the message of Gov. Bersamin and I also respect what he said. Then came Mayor Luna who said he does not want to recognize the loan given by Cong. Joy Valera to the ABRECO management and I respect that and I even agree with him. But when he said the forum should be converted into a General Assembly, with all due respect, I cannot agree with that. Mayor Marco Bautista also talked and said that the forum should be converted i to a General Assembly. Again, with all due respect, I cannot agree with that. May I remind you that they were only invited. When someone invites you, do you tell your hosts what they should do? It goes without saying, that you must respect your hosts and the least you should do is to behave properly. I will not dwell anymore on what Hans Luna did and the way he comported himself at the forum because that would ontly be beating a dead horse.
        There were hundreds of people in that forum and they saw what happened. If you saw something else, I have no quarrel with that. But there was nothing untrue about what I wrote. And I respect your right to use KITA KITS as your pen name. We are both concerned about the state of affairs obtaining in Abra. I believe a modicum of civility, respect and decency is required of everyone. After all is said and done, the only thing that will matter is if we possess good judgment and if we all act as educated people. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion but not to his own set of facts.

        Posted by pedro abreno | January 30, 2013, 3:39 pm

      • Mea culpa, KITA KITS. I don’t know how to describe uncouth behavior in a constructive way. My only allegiance is to genuine leadership and true democracy. I have yet to see it in any of our leaders. What gets me really riled up is when leaders or wannabees act as emperors whose every whim and caprice should be blithely given by the people. As far as I am concerned only one side matters – the majority of the peace-loving Abrenos. I don’t give a damn if our leaders want to kill each other. But I do care when people like Carmelita Bersalona, Pura Sumangil and that priest are treated so shabbily. After all, they were the hosts, weren’t they. I doff my hat off to Carmelita Bersalona who was the only person who stood for the rights of our people during the dark days of Gen. Martin. I have no quarrel with you. I wish you all the best.

If gen Martin only knew what he know now, it would be different outcome. Your gov TakeIt Bulsamin will not, I repeat will not become a governor let alone a Kapitan del barrio. Ti la agperperdi ti padam nga tao. Aglemmeng ka met ngarud ti palda ni gov TakeIt Bulsamin. Keep your fingers away from the keyboard. Better yet put it where it belongs in your p as in letter “P”.

          Posted by pedro abreno | January 30, 2013, 11:21 pm
        • ERIC SHAWN, when Gov. Takit said that the PNP was used by the politicians in the past, I took him to task for it. I said, yes, what yoou said is true because you were one of them. I said no government official, local or provincial, lifted a hand when abuses at checkpoints were being perpetrated by Gen. Martin and his stooges. I mentioned Gov. Takit, Dominic Valera, the Bernoses and the Lunas and I said the reason was they were benefitting from it. I’m sorry if you missed that. I posted that when the Abra PNP reported 179 guns surrendered by politicians in Abra. For those who are really dense, I will repeat for the last time, my only allegiance is to good governance and true democracy, nothing more, nothing less. I am reacting to your statement because you come across as a fairly decent person.

And for the record i don’t possess all those properties that you are referring to and anyone can bring forth any substantiated documents that says otherwise. I rest my case with you and i stand firm with my claim that those alleged acquisitions you are referring to are product of hallucinations and fabrications. And also sorry to disappoint you 5 yrs ago i was not able to prepare a statement of assets liabilities and network because there was no need to do so, i did not work for the government so there was nothing to compare.

Abra our birthplace should be the best place on earth to spend the remaining years of our lives (after retirement) if you and other truth-seekers or freedom and human rights activists with the honest and courageous collaboration of all concerned law enforcement agencies could annihilate these stumbling blocks of our quest. I hope they would realize that sooner or later they too need a place where they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

      • Condelleza,
        Pardon the mis-use of the word, that interpretation of yours with regards to what i have said is unacceptable. Let me reiterate that one vital aspect that was pinpointed as one cause of the problem is the large number of employees that was why there is the need to push the retrenchment program. It is my belief that the least that i could do is to resign so as to help realize the need to minimize the overhead expense.
        I do not wish to argue with you or try to make you believe but i really meant well.

        Posted by Ma Dymphna Seares | January 30, 2013, 6:08 am
        • Madam Dy, your retrenchment or austerity program plus your irrevocable resignation are commendable, but are they the only viable solutions to end up once and for all the unending allegations or accusations of corruption? I believe that there’s no more end of this even though the coop would be able to regain its credibility because the damage has been done and storm of suspicions is still unpreventable that may ruin further your integrity. What about dismantling it as a coop and submit it to the government authorities for reconstruction not allowing any political intervention to form its new and fresh “Management Team” in compliance with the Civil Service rules and regulations?
          It’s just a suggestion Madam and please pardon me if you find it unacceptable. I am not just concerned for the non-interruption power supply but more on the incurred debts which its interests alone are enough to cripple us. Whereas, if the government will take over it completely and permanently, there’s a possibility of debt absorption or reduction without further light or heavy expense or burden of responsibility from the consumers.
          Again, I am very sorry for just asking……

  10. What I observe here and on FB, some people are jumping to conclusions without even getting the facts. I was following everyones bad perceptions of the GM but I kind of change my attitude of really trying to find the truth about Abreco. I want to give him the benefit of doubt after my few phone conversations with him. I feel the honesty and sincerity in his tones and I will do my best to help him straighten some things before we go public about what really happen? I took into consideration the fact that he took over a “debt ridden” cooperative and that is a big factor in my investigation. What do we understand what this means? There was already a big problem before he took over…How much? that’s what we’re trying to account. The GM is taking care of important matters right now and once he’s done, he can concentrate more in putting together a “financial statement”. Right now is not the best time for a New Mangement as per the wishes of the Governor and his wife, My advise to him is to prove he did not do anything wrong. He may, a little but I don’t believe he caused all the problems. Trust me, if all your accusations is true, I will be the first one to tell him to “step down”.

    • Ma’am Omli…For me the best way to move forward in these current ABRECO mess is first and foremost for the current officers to resign, they loss their ground to manage the cooperative…it is sinking and sinking while they remain . Emergency takeover from CDA/NEA / Other agencies must be requested . An independent ,impartial and speedy, investigation must be done.

      • CQB, pleased be informed that not all California Abrenians are political partisan but like any part of the world where you can find Abrenians, we could also influence the selfishness, individualistic, and cowardliness attitudes of our own relatives, friends, and neighbors back home on 2016 Election. California is like the size of our Country (Philippines) where we hardly know each other especially if we are not joining actively to any kind of organizations and religions. I beg your pardon…….

  11. Pedro Abrenio is absolutely correct. We should not lose hope and we are a government of rules not men. That is the reality of democracy. A lot of people gets confused but it takes a deep analysis to fully understand the true meaning of democracy. To some it even takes a lifetime or none understanding till death at all. Sometimes stumble but we always stand back up……………

  12. Just consult your facts and never rely on your feelings, Madame. You said, he took over a “debt ridden” cooperative…I supposed you know from whom. Why not start from there then before commenting on the wishes of the “impartial” consumers for a new beginning in Abreco. Don’t invoke your judgement – something is fishy.

    • That’s what I am doing……fact finding before I make my conclusions. Your feelings or hunches is what makes you get to the facts most of the time. I am a certified Mediator and I do this all the time…Most of my mediation cases are resolved because I listen, I ask and I recommend.

      Posted by Carmelita E. Omli | January 30, 2013, 9:52 pm
      • I think just who we need Madam…a person who listens, who asks, who recommends…
        These essentially are few of d many attributes a true leader should possess; but often neglected and shunned by our present crop of elected officials…
        With d warring warlords of Abra politics trying to get to each others’ throat at all costs, pretending and misleading the people to satisfy their misplaced whims and caprices, resorting to all means possible just to cling to corrupting power, tyrannical rule and unabated greed, plundering d people’s money like there’s no more tomorrow, and robbing us of our dignity as a people even in broad daylight – all at d expense of a genuine, dedicated, people-oriented public service, we, d Abrenian people, continue to look for new leaders of d new generation, people who are willing to make a sacrifice and take d challenge of leading us to that “righteous path”, desperate as it may seem but then, we are still fighting and believing…
        Who knows, you could provide an answer to our people’s many lingering questions. Or perhaps, you are d very Answer to these questions!
        Just continue and keep doing what you’re doing. As Theodore Roosevelt put it, “Far and away, d best prize that life offers is d chance to work hard at work worth doing.” Rightly so! May God continue to bless us…

  13. hahaha….bassit lang nga drama carried awayen….jun “gm” seares have been in abreco for almost six years now and never recall any instance the management called for an annual general assembly. the by-laws of the cooperative mandate an annual gen. assembly to be called for every 3rd month of the year. for your own dose of medicine madam, the agenda in the said assembly includes the presentation of financial statement. why is it that he is still putting together the financial statement of the cooperative only now? its a common knowledge that jun only succeeded the 355M loan from NEA way back decades ago and its already condoned. now, when he told you his piece with his meekest voice did he ever presented to you some figures to support what he claimed to be the real picture of abreco now? am almost sure that numbers dont lie………

        no worries kits, got more than enough documents to pin down these crooks! i wonder if u could whisper it to me why you hate this lovable( owssss) and lovely(ehemmmm) woman?

        • watersnake. I suggest you get your facts/documents out to the proper authorities as the v-mayor’s wife said. I’m here in Bangued and I am one of the consumers and i hate what’s going on here. I hope your facts are actually facst and not just spinning the wheel. I’ve read posts here about all these allege evidences and not one has made it to court. I actually commend Dymphna for engaging everyone here and didn’t resort to personal attacks. I suggest you do as well. Also, I suggest you leave sexual overtures somewhere else. After all the Lady is married. have some decency pare/mare.

    • I agree with you; that’s why I need more time to sit with him and see what has happened. I will start to look the “debt ridden” situation before he took over. That’s where I am going to start. He is very cooperative with me and I pray he is not going to shove me on the side before I find out the truth. He is very willing for me to help him, he told me that. I would like to see where he started to fail the expectations of everyone. Sometimes I try to rationalize him….maybe he thinks he is impressing everyone when in fact the ship is already sinking like you all say?

    • Now the facts are coming…list it down Madame and verify for your evaluation. Can anyone give the issues raised by the late James Bersamin with Abreco which caused his death?

      Posted by kumaw | January 31, 2013, 5:34 am
      • It was Gm Marco’s idea in order to save his ass from the expose of james.. Jendricks and Ryan designed the implementation of the plan and carried out by Fernan and Edgar..
        To give you a little perspective:
        1. Abreco created millions of indebtedness from Nea
        2. Psalm condoned the loan of Abreco to Nea. However, the amount being condoned by Psalm Abreco based on its capacity should return the amount to its members consumer. The mandate was relegated to the wayside
        3. Abreco has incurred 24M to Nea after the condonation.
        4. James Bersamin reminded the Gm regarding Abreco’s obligation to its members consumer and asked the GM the disposition of Abreco’s loan from nea amounting to 24M because according to James the loan will be passed on to the members consumer
        5. James Bersamin revealed an ERC communication for Abreco that the LAN being condoned by Psalm should be return to the members consumer. The revelation of James has been regarded as a high profile issue against the management of Marco
        6. Nea acting upon a request has conducted a surprise comprehensive audit
        7. Abreco Gm ask the board of directors of Abreco to call for a special General Assembly of members consumers in order to approve the conversion of Abreco into a Cooperative. In the know: Under The Cooperative Code of the Philippines, Abreco like any other electric distribution utilities that operate under the supervisions of Nea has given an option to convert itself into a stock or non stock cooperative. Gm Marco was quick to realize its fate, he took advantage of the provision set forth in the Cooperative Code of the Philippines hence the convention of members consumer to a General Assembly. Serafin Alzate has made the motion to convert Abreco into a non stock Cooperative it was seconded and there being no question Abreco was declared a cooperative, free from the dictums of Nea.. Abreco has averted the intervention of Nea. The Gm never should have been interogated with regard to the findings of Nea because Abreco was already a non stock cooperative.

        Abreco is a cooperative created under PD no. 269 otherwise known as the National Electric Administration, as amended by Presidential Decree No. 1645. Abreco is within the Administrative regulation of Nea under PD 269. Having registered itself -Abreco- with the CDA, Nea’s supervision under section 5 of PD 269 as amended by PD1645 no longer be applicable because Abreco has already qualified as a cooperative under CDA. Sec 5 of PD69 empowers NEa to issue rules and regulations and motu propionate, or upon petition of third Artie’s, to conduct investigations, referendums, and other similar actions in all matters affecting electric cooperatives and other borrowers or supervised or controlled entities.

        Section 17 of RA No. 6938 supersedes section 5 of PD 269 as amended by PD 1645.

        James Bersamin was the chairman of SP’s Cooperative Com. He regarded electricity rate increase as anti people.

  14. Madam, C. Omli are you blind or bingi kaya?????
    Fact1: GM Jun cannot explain well all those cars, condos & H&L he got.(maari nga na di nakapangalan sa kanya pero I-trace mo yong nakapangalan kung kaya nyang bumili ng ganoon halaga ng ari-arian).
    Fact 2:GM Jun have not or did not do anything to augment the ballooning debts of Abreco, instead ay pinalala nya sa pamamagitan ng kung ano-anong dahilan purchases which did not even happen at kung nagyari man over-priced at syempre commissioner yang kaya mahilig din sa commission.
    Fact 3: GM Jun knows nothing about management, kasi di naman nakatapos yan ng college. Tapos I-pamanage kanya ang million pesos cooperative. Kaya sinisisi ko si GOVAH TAKE IT ditto kasi sya yong author para malukluk itong payaso na ito.
    Fact 4: Karamihan ng emplayado nya ay kanyang appointed, so what do you expect?

    Kaya Madam, Listen & Look do not use your nose.

    • Don’t call me names. That’s unprofessional for you to call me names. I know what I’m doing and I already have your questions in my list before it even went to your brain? I made a list of what the people of Abra wants to know? I am going to find out. Shame on you to be calling yourself “CONDELLEZA PRICE, you don’t even deserve that name…huh? I have more than what you have in your list. You remind me of those “nozzy” envious idiots I had encountered in my life. I used to live behind the gates…..mansion. I worked hard in my whole life to have a lifestyle I have dreamt coming from a “cash poor family”. You know what? nozzy Filipinos were asking each other, how I ever afford to live the life I live…all kinds of guessing games among themselves. They don’t know I worked so hard. I made very good money because I worked hard. SO, you really remind me of those idiots who don’t have nothing to do but “eyeing” on how their neighbors live….what they have or what are they doing? Like I said…..when I’m done with my fact finding, and I found him to be lying to me……..sorry, husto amin nga kunayo kunak to met ah kaniayo?

I don’t know what the allegations but, whatever it is, no a nia ti pagasasaritaan tayo ditoy isu la met ti sungsungbatak. Like the rest of you, whatever my opinions in regards to our present Abreco situation are mere opinions that I thought would help solve the querries of everyone. I do not judge or conclude until I find proof. That’s true, a person is innocent until proven guilty….if you guys have proof against the GM, why not bring him to court? The fact that we have black-outs or the fact that he is not on time with his payments doesn’t mean he is a “criminal”. No talaga ga adda aramid na nga kasla ta kunayo amin, apay nga madi inikkat ti DOE isuna? All of the power providers were all at the meeting. In fcat PSALM offered to defer the debt for a year, just to help Abreco after the GM presented his Rehab Plan. Let’s give him the benefit of doubt nga kasla tay inted ti DOE kaniana. He can do it and slowly I am asking for reports for the consumers to see.

Keep posting, misis. I suggest dig deeper into the problem of Abreco. If the current GM had nothing to do with this as you said the problem was already existing before he took over the helm of the cooperative, he should prove it. Right? And what did he do about it? If there was; then he made it WORST!
