Oca to name Cohara exec to COWD board

By NITZ ARANCON, Correspondent .

MAYOR Oscar Moreno yesterday announced that he would appoint a former president of the Cagayan de Oro Hotels and Restaurants Association (Cohara) to the board of directors of the Cagayan de Oro Water District (COWD).

Moreno said he has chosen Nelia Lee, a former Cohara president, to be the replacement of outgoing COWD director Anthony Soc del Rosario.

Lee is a former manager of Dynasty Court and Restaurant. She now manages Ahfong Asian Cuisine.

The term of del Rosario, a former member of the provincial board of Misamis Oriental who was subsequently appointed to the COWD board when Vicente Emano was mayor, will expire next month.

Del Rosario’s six-year term as COWD director expires on Dec. 31.

Moreno  made the announcement during the turnover of a rehabilitated reservoir of the COWD in Barangay Camaman-an yesterday morning.

Lee would sit in the five-person policy-making body of the COWD. By Jan. 1, 2019,  all the COWD directors would become Moreno appointees.

The others are COWD chairman Eduardo Antonio Montalvan, lawyer Mateo Delegencia, Hilly Ann Quioit and Conception Quiblat.

“Probably, there are others who are more qualified but… it is not just  whether you’re good or your qualified but I also look at the chemistry nga mag-blend ba ang board,” Moreno said.
