Mayor Panaligan pays final respects to ex-Rep. Rey Umali
Calapan City Mayor Arnan C. Panaligan paid his respects and delivered a tribute to the late former Congressman Reynaldo V. Umali.
The Mayor also extended his condolence to the Umali Family at their residence in Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro.
Also present during the wake was 1st District Rep. Doy Leachon.
Accompanying Panaligan were City Vice Mayor Gil Ramirez and City Administrator Atty. Adel Abas.
Rey Umali has passed away last week due to cardiac arrest. He was 63.
The former solon also tested positive to coronavirus disease last month, which aggravated his liver cancer.
Umali served as 2nd district representative of Oriental Mindoro for three consecutive terms from 2010 to 2019. In 2019, he ran as governor but eventually lost to then-Vice Governor Humerlito Dolor.
