Novero: ‘Magnificent 7’ will uphold virtues in governance-A A +A
Saturday, October 6, 2012
“We are committed to uphold and practice sincerity, integrity, simplicity, transparency, honesty, accountability, and truth as magnificent virtues for good governance,” lawyer Renecito Novero said.
Novero, who is an independent candidate for Vice Mayor in Bacolod City, led the “Magnificent 7” in filing their candidacy papers Friday at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) office.
The Magnificent 7 is composed of Novero and reelectionists Councilors Sonya Verdeflor, Archie Baribar, El Cid Familiaran, Elmer Sy, Rocky Lizares, and Bobby Coscolluela.
They could not question my capacity to run the Sangguniang Panlungsod as a collegial body, Novero said.
The Magnificent 7 candidates are independent candidates with Liberal Party nominees, citing the incumbent councilors.
“Our observation and our feedback from well-meaning sectors - religious, educators, business sector and common people – is that it is advantageous to run as independent candidates. We cannot be involved in any issues being hurled by candidates with a political party,” Novero said. (Carla N. Canet)
