Election 2016: Bangued Mayoralty contest is a heavyweight bout

Takit vs Dominic for Bangued Mayor

Takit vs Dominic for Bangued Mayor

Who would ever thought it will come down to this? But again it’s politics…crazy things happen. For 9 years, the Bersamins and Valera/Bernos has maintained the political Status Qou, avoiding direct confrontation. But I guess something’s got to give. So here we are, a heavyweight bout featuring the top head huchos of each camp: Takit vs Dominic. The battleground…the capital town of Bangued.

Eustaquio “Takit” Bersamin is a 3-time Governor. He unexpectedly was catapulted to power in 2010 when sympathy votes (the assination of Chito Bersamin) enabled him to take down Vicsyd Valera. Bersamin is no longer a pushover as he has built his political influence for the past 9 years. He hinted in 2013 that he will bow out of politics at the end of his term. He has changed his mind since.

Dominic “Nic” Valera is the incumbent mayor of Bangued. He was the Mayor in 2007 but was foiled by Ryan Luna in his bid for re-election in 2010. He took back the position in 2013 from Luna, eventually ending the Luna’s political clout.

I think this contest is more crucial to the Bersamins than the Valeras. Takit Bersamin has to win. It’s an insurance for their political survival, in case his wife Ruby Bersamin fail to win the Governoship.

As for Dominic Valera, the odds is on his favor. Historically, incumbents usually wins re-election. A win would spell doom for the Bersamins.

In my personal opinion, the winner is still too close to call. My only hope is both gentleman should fight fair and square and let the people freely decide.

  1. I hope to hope, the hope you hope to hope, that both gentlemen will fight fair and square and let the people freely casts their votes on election day. Awan koma pinnabuteng ket ag-neutral koma dagiti Police ken Army ta saanda nga agpausar kadagitoy politiko.

  2. I agree to sir Sysop that 2016 contest is more crucial to the Bersamins. This is a championship fight, winner take all. But let us see the records. The governor won in 3 consecutive elections landslide with no parallel more votes than any other candidates in his 3 terms.The mayor lost once. For governor, our lady legislator never lost but unfortunately her performance and accomplishments appeared unsatisfactory to the eyes of most bloggers n constituents.Unfortunately, the opponent lacks experiences but depends much on the governor’s guidance n tutorship.

  3. Now that the cards of each political parties here in Abra have revealed, it is now in our hands to choose who will govern us in the next 3 years. We have our own basis of voting. Some base it on the political track record, some base it on blood relation, some base it on popularity and some base on the amount of money given by the political candidates (the saddest truth and trend now a days). I can’t blame most of my fellow Abrenians sell their votes for a certain amount, they accept the money because of fear and poverty. But I know that even though they have now no choice, as they write the name of the politician, it is accompanied by hope. Hope that the name they have witten in their ballot will bring relief in their lives even at it’s minimum. This coming election two of the most powerful, rich, feared, loved and influential clan are facing each other in the hippodrome of politics. I just wish, hope and pray that it will be a peaceful election and not a bloody one. Love and respect in our hearts.

  5. Walang patayan kung magtulongan tayo. Binabantayan namin bawat galaw ang mga suspected PAGS at galaw ng mga namatay tao na candidate.
    Ang dapat pigilin ay mga naliknaw tulad nitong Erection na wala na ngang utak , ampaw pa ang puso. Pati kawawang 4Ps na pinakahirap dinadawit sa kanyang kabulastogan. Di ba ito ang tunay na idiot na pinagdadal ay malayo sa issue.

    • Kopitan 4ps ang mgpapatalo sa koliglig grp pg ngkataon if ur bossed would not dole out the amount that the valeras will dole out wag kang hypocrite if sabihin mong takit wilk not engage vote buying. As for the PAGs ur boss will have a platoon of army n pnp to counter them if their boss is a die had for kokiglig. The valeras grp are now happy for what koliglig did to the PNP who helped him in 2007 it will serve as awakening for them not to side takit anymore.

      Posted by eric shawn | October 17, 2015, 2:10 pm
    • 4ps will be the biggest threat of kokiglig. He will dole out the loot he acquired for 9 years for him to survive this election. After which back to zero sya if swertehin sya he has another 9 yrs to take it bulsamin as angkik favorite word against takit

  8. Logical form

    Vicsyd/ching–1988-2007 (19 years) Gov/Cong
    Carmelo/atoy -1967-1986 (19 years) Gov/Gov/assemblyman
    ——
    Chito/takit/rosario-1997-2016 (19 years) vice gov/cong/gov/vice gov

    My interpretation

    it is right to answer one right with another right. Two rights make a right.
    If carmelo/atoy barbero ruled abra for 19 years (1967-1988) and
    vicsyd/ching valera ruled abra also for 19 years (1988-2007),
    i would be mathematically correct when i say that the bersamin regime is about to end taking into consideration the chronological traces of political events in abra.
    Others might have different interpretation but
    whether we like or dislike we know that the bersamin’s time is up.

    The 2016 local elections clearly indicate the vast political interest of takit bersamin-

    for governor: bersamin
    For vice governor:
    For Board member: bersamin

    Bangued
    For mayor: bersamin
    For vice mayor: bersamin

    For councilor: bersamin

    Agum ken apal ti pukkaw da idi ken vicsyd
    Makita tayo tatta nga isu day met gayam.

    Tao ti mang sentencia
    Tiempo dan nga ma sentencia

    • THE BLUNDER OF KOKIGLIG LINE UP IS BY PUTTING MAMASITA RUBY IN THE GOBERNORNATURIAL BET A BIG LOOP HOLE AND A POLITICAL SUICIDE OR MISTAKE he should put Chari AND FOR SURE DEMONIC WILL PUT ALL THEIR ASSETS TO HIS DAUGHTER FOR A SURE WIN
      MOST POLITICAL ANALYS LOOK THE GOVERNOR AS THE MAIN political framework IN EVERY PROVINCE THEREFORE IF YOU GOT THIS POSITION YOU GOT THE ULTIMATE CONTROL
      Never mine loosing Mayor of Bangued Conressman as long as they got The Governor
      Next round of election or by year 2020 the Governor will be in control
      In other words they will take back congressman and mayor of Bangued by 2020

      • Ng cong na lng sana si takit at least meron pa din syang grip sa mga loyal mayors nya. I agree with the assesment of neutral grp that 50 50 si ruby worst pati si takit matalo din. If that happens il be the happiest because popoy n other will be left behind in abra and they will0 be a shooting duck by a trigger happy like me. Hehe joke lng harmless ako less nga lng

    • Your Logical form is interesting ADAGE, but history often repeats itself only twice.

      The difference between the first 2 n the 3rd:
      The Bersamin has a victim caused by power n greed
      The Bersamin proved their worth thru accomplishments n campaign 4 peace
      Among the 1st 2, no one was trusted by Codellera political leaders 4 regional development. Only Takit gives us that honor.
      No candidates for governor received enormous winning edge except Takit 4 the 3 elections

  9. Let’s face it, the fact of the matter is, that the only way the incumbent could get himself re-elected is if he buys votes as he has in the past! There is NO WAY he can win re-election fair and square if he keeps his money in his pockets and his badigolyongs from brandishing their guns!

Kabataan, ipagpatuloy ang inyong magagandang adhikain at gabayan din ang mga lolong sira ng ulo. Indeed, You are the true hope of our fatherland if u act now. (English yan )

  21. I did not see a significant improvement of Bangued under the baton of Mayor Dominic, what I see are food chain, groceries that aspirate the meager earnings of abrenians. I see also high taxes that burdens the small businesses especially in the public market. I do not endorse Takit coz I know it will be same banana. Don’t we have any abrenian that sacrifice his personal interest to ran for municipal executive (mayor).

  22. Sigurado yan COL POPOY – layos. Pagod na ang Abrenian sa takot at patayan. Respeto sa kapwa tao at kaunlaran ang kailangan hindi takot at mataas na buis.
