Gov. Dolor pays tribute to late Rep. Rey Umali
Oriental Mindoro Governor Humerlito Dolor has paid his final respects to the late Rep. Reynaldo Umali who passed away last week.
Dolor was joined by department heads at the Capitol during his visit at the residence of the former solon in Brgy. Ipil in Bongabong.
“Kasama ang mga Hepe ng bawat Departmento (Department Heads) ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan personal nating binisita upang bigyang pagkilala ang namayapang dating Kongresista ng Ikalawang Distrito Cong. “RU” Umali,” Dolor said.
“Sa pangunguna ng inyong lingkod kaisa ang mga Mayor ng bawat bayan at mga kababayang Oriental Mindoreños, muli po nais po naming ipaabot ang aming pakikiramay,” he added
Dolor ran against Umali last 2019 gubernatorial election, where the latter lost.
Umali died 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.
