Journalists win, lose in village polls

BACOLOD City – Several media personalities here won key posts in the May 14, 2018 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK).

Based on official results released by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Eric Magbanua of Aksyon Radyo-Bacolod is the No. 6 kagawad of Pahanocoy.

Radyo Bandera Sweet FM anchorman Eljohn Castaño of Barangay Granada and colleague Engineer Ronnie Albao also won seats in Granada’s village council.

But not all journalists were as lucky, like Aksyon Radyo-Bacolod reporter John Dale Salazar who lost his bid for one of the seven seats of Alijis village council.

Former Negros Press Club vice president and Radyo Bandera anchorman Babes Gantalao failed to get enough votes to secure a seat in Banago.

Kirby Federez of Radyo Bandera also lost in Barangay 41 while former Watchmen Daily Journal reporter Neska Centina, who ran for SK chairmanship, in Barangay Sum-ag did not make it.

Similar fates befell RMN DYHB-Bacolod reporter Grace Supe of Barangay Antipolo in Pontevedra, Negros Occidental and Edmund Aspero of Barangay 16.
