The Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP) has chosen former councilor Rogelio “Gerky” Valesco to replace Myra Paz Abubakar at the Sangguniang Panlungsod when the latter assumes her new post as Tourism Regional Director.

The LDP chose Valesco over former Red Cross administrator Vic Liozo to replace Abubakar at the City Council.

Councilor Miguel Alavar, Local LDP president, reasoned that the party has chosen Valesco due to his track record of nine years as a former councilor.

Liozo is currently serving as school administrator after retiring from the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Zamboanga Chapter.

Meanwhile, the LDP is currently processing Valesco’s papers for submission to the  Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Alavar said that Valesco is expected to sit as a member of the City Council by September if everything goes well.  (RGAAGo)
