0 735

Erstwhile Vice Mayor Jeff Besinio is now the new mayor of Baao town in Camarines Sur.

This, after the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region V officially served the dismissal order against Mayor Melqiades Gaite, a Bicol Standard report Tuesday (May 9) said.

Last month, Ombudsman Conchita-Carpio Morales issued a resolution sacking the local chief executive over a supposedly anomalous lease agreement involving the local public market.

The report said that Besinio took his oath of office as “full-fledged mayor.”

DILG Region V legal division chief, lawyer Zalman Uddin bared that Gaite chose not to personally receive the dismissal order. It was instead posted inside the Municipal Hall.
