Last May 10 elections, Bacolod City voted for a new Mayor. Former Congressman Monico Puentevella was elected as the new mayor of the City of Smiles to the delight of his supporters. He won over incumbent vice-mayor Thaddy Sayson whose running mate Mayor Bing Leonardia won as the new congressman for the lone district of Bacolod City. For Monico Puentevella, it was his first time to step inside the New Government Center.
Here are some snapshots of the event outside and inside the NGC during the day Monico Puentevella was proclaimed by COMELEC as Mayor-elect of Bacolod City. These pictures were taken from my cellphone camera using Camera360 for filter.
