IT would be the third time for a man from Macasandig to try his luck in the city’s mayoral race.
Felix Borres filed his certificate of candidacy for mayor as an independent candidate at around noontime yesterday. It was the second day for the submission of candidacy papers to the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
Comelec records show that Borres filed his certificate 40 minutes past 12 noon, making him the third mayoral hopeful in the city to comply with the requirements set by the Commission.
So far, Borres would be facing Barangay Macasandig councilor Nixon Baban and Benjamin Contreras who submitted their papers on Thursday, the first day for filing of certificates of candidacy.
Garry Lumandam of Barangay Carmen also submitted his papers to the Comelec at around 11:53 am yesterday. Lumandam, who filed as an independent candidate, is aspiring for a seat in the city council as a representative of the city’s 1st District. (Nitz Arancon)
