Chevylle Fariñas files COC for LC Mayor
The much awaited showdown between two Farinases in Laoag City took a serious turn today, October 1 as Laoag Liga ng mga Barangay President Chevylle V. Farinas filed her certificate of candidacy (COC) for mayor. Accompanied by incumbent Laoag City councilors led by incoming Vice Mayor Donal Nicolas, barangay officials, City Hall employees and students, Ms. Farinas officially filed her COC at a little past 8 am. MS Farinas is the wife of incumbent Mayor Michael V, Farinas, who has completed three terms and as such is prohibited from seeking another term.
Former Laoag Mayor Roger C. Farinas has also made known his intention to reclaim old post in next year’s midterm elections. He, however has not yet filed his COC as of this time. Should he decide to run for mayor, this would mark the first time that the powerful political clan would face off with each other in an election.
