CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – THE local bets of the Padayon Pilipino party in Cagayan de Oro showed their force last night (Dec 1) when they marched with scores of supporters from City Hall to the Commission on Elections office to file their certificates of candidacy.
            Led by incumbent Vice Mayor Vicente Emano, who is running for the mayor’s post, the party members and their supporters from 60 of the city’s 80 barangays carried lighted native lanterns in their short distance walk.
            Emano’s running mate is incumbent city councilor Ian Acenas.
            For the city’s first congressional district, the party’s bet is former city councilor Benjo Benaldo, and for the second congressional district incumbent Rep.. Rufus Rodriguez.
            Running for the city council are Atty. Nadia Emano, daughter of the vice mayor, incumbent city councilors Simeon Licayan, Marycor Calizo, Ramon Tabor, Ian Nacaya, Atty. Adrian Barba, Alden Bacal, Prexy Elipe, Emmanuel Abejuela and Alex Dacer, and former city councilors Juan Sia and Pepe Abbu.
            For the provincial post, the party’s gubernatorial bet is Atty. Michael Paderanga who will be challenging incumbent Gov. Oscar Moreno.
            All bets have at one time or another held elective posts, except Nadia Emano who is a first timer.
            They are all under former Philippine president Joseph E. Estrada who has filed his certificate of candidacy in Manila for the presidential post, and vice presidential bet Jejomar Binay, of the Partido ng Masang Pilipino.
