SORSOGON CITY, 29June2019 (BicolToday.com) – Lawyer Romeo “Boy” Fortes will be the new provincial administrator, while Atty. Mark Gerald D. Guirindola will serve as city administrator and Atty. Roberto Labitag as city legal officer, according to source.
Some department heads in the provincial capitol will be replaced, but the source did not mention names while other department heads in the city government will be under “floating status”.
Thousands of job orders and contractual positions will be vacated upon assumption of new leadership.
Also heads to roll are officials and staff of mentioned offices that are allegedly involved in partisan politics in the last May 2019 elections, the source said.
The source also added that it is better for them to resign rather than face legal action.
“By resigning, this is the best way for them to exit gracefully and avail of the benefits, rather than nothing to collect if convicted for the crime and face perpetual disqualification from holding office in the government,” the source explained. [BicolToday.com]
