CITY OF MALOLOS— Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado and his running mate, Vice Governor Daniel Fernando, will continue to lead Bulacan into greater heights as the Commission on Elections verified their victory in the 2013 elections.

Out of the 1, 205,364 who actually voted, Alvarado garnered 894,593 votes that almost eclipse the one million mark despite running unopposed. Fernando, as vice governor, garnered 914, 960 votes.

After serving the province for three years as the governor, Alvarado said that he would like to carry on his prospect of giving the Bulakenyos a better province to live in.

“We are very thankful for the trust and support from our fellow Bulakenyos. We will continue what we have started. I urged everyone to keep on supporting our programs that are anchored on our seven-point agenda which includes environment, health, education, transparent governance, livelihood, peace and order, and history and culture,” the governor said.

He added that his first term as the governor gave him an apparent perception on the real situation of the Bulakenyos and how to make development prosper in the province.

“Our goal is to make Bulacan a new engine of economic growth. Tamang-tama ang ating lokasyon. Itinuturing ang Bulacan na Gateway to the North. Kaya ang industriyalisasyong mangyayari sa ating lalawigan ay magpapayabong rin ng ekonomiya ng ibang lalawigan sa Central at Northern Luzon,” said Alvarado.

Other newly-elected officials of the province who will be taking oath are board members from each district such as Michael Fermin (167,051), Toti Ople (157,104) and Ayee Ople (151,776) for the first district; Buko Dela Cruz (153,263) and Monet Posadas (121,988) for second district; Nono Castro (108,383)and Erning Sulit (85,069) for third district; and Jonjon Delos Santos (193,446), King Sarmiento (170,113) and Allan Ray Baluyut (149,556) for fourth district.
