Marinduque Governor Carmencita Reyes has secured a fresh three-year term after emerging victorious in a three-way race against former board member Melecio Go and independent candidate Victoria Lim.
Reyes and other winners of local races in Marinduque were proclaimed Sunday by the provincial board of canvassers (PBOC), six days after the May 9 elections.
The governor, however, skipped the event.
The proclamation of winners was delayed because the PBOC waited for the results of the special elections held in Barangay Alobo in Sta. Cruz Saturday.
Incumbent Vice Governor Romulo Bacorro also won his reelection bid, beating Francis Edward Garcia of the Nationalist People’s Coalition.
Also proclaimed was reelectionist Lord Allan Jay Velasco, who won the congressional race for the province’s lone district.
Meanwhile, the following won as board members of the province’s 1st district: Mark Anthony Seño, Theresa Caballes, John Pelaez and Gilbert Daquioag.
In the 2nd district, the winning board members were: Amelia Aguirre, Reynaldo Salvacion, Juan Fernandez Jr., and Harold Red.
