A four-cornered fight has developed for the lone Congressional Disctrict of Abra. This position is quite important as the representative will give voice to Abrenians and lobby for the province’s needs at the National Level. Here’s our four candidates:
Joselito Bringas – a brilliant Doctor/Surgeon who opted to practice in Abra despite numerous oppurtunities in the big city and abroad. Realizing Abra needs a new face and a different perspective, Dr. Bringas filed his COC at the 11th hour as an Independent Candidate. Considered as the Dark Horse in this race, a win for Dr. Bringas, will disrupt the balance of power in Abra Politics.
Cecy Luna – reportedly filed for her COC at the last minute as well. She was Congresswoman in 2007, defeated by Joy Bernos in 2010 and she lost to Takit Bersamin for Governorship in 2013. Together with her former Mayor Son (Ryan Luna is running for Vice-Governor), her family is trying to make a political comeback.
JB Bernos – the incumbent Mayor of La Paz, Abra. His family has lord it out for decades in the Municipality of La paz and Danglas. Bernos was catapulted to power due to the assasination of his older brother Marc Ysrael Bernos. He’s now vying for a higher office, a chance his brother wasn’t able to do.
Marco Bautista – A Lawyer, a not so stellar performance as ABRECO General Manager and currently the Mayor of the municipality of San Juan, Abra. Atty Bautista is being backed by the Bersamin camp.
As always, may the best man/woman win. Fight hard but fair. Let the people decide freely.
