LAOAG CITY – ABC President Chevylle Fariñas was the first among the early candidates to file a Certificate of Candidacy before the Office of the City COMELEC here, seeking the top elective post in this city.
She arrived about 8:00 this morning, in the said office.
She was accompanied by husband, incumbent Mayor Michael Fariñas, relatives and supporters, who chanted “Walang iwanan”.
Her supporters, composed of barangay officials and members of Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) attended the 6 o’clock a.m. mass at St. William’s Cathedral here before they joined her at the COMELEC office.
Chevylle filed her CoC for city mayor, a position soon to be vacated by husband Mayor Michael Fariñas, who is now in his last term.
At the final day of filing COC, former City Mayor Roger Fariñas, who has been very vocal in returning to politics by seeking the post he once held less than a decade ago, has also filed his CoC.
The former mayor is the older brother of Ilocos Norte 1st District Representative Rodolfo Fariñas.
Meanwhile, also beating the deadline was former Ilocos Norte Governor Michael Marcos Keon, who filed his CoC for Mayor of this city. (Theo S. Guiang)
