BORBON, Cebu — Expressing his belief that the UniTeam of former Senator Bongbong Marcos and Sara Duterte will foster the country’s unity and progress, re-electionist Mayor Noel Dotillos on Tuesday said he envisions this tranquil town to become a first-class municipality by building a large port and put up an economic zone.
Dotillos told Maharlika TV in an exclusive interview that he never doubts that the “Abante Borbon” program of the Team Dotillos-Melgo (TMD) will succeed, especially when “BBM wins as president and Inday Sara as vice president.”
“We will build a large port that will serve our neighboring islands. Of course, with this port an economic zone will also be established to improve the quality of lives of all Borboranons,” Dotillos said.
He also said that aside from targetting the economic boom in this town, quality higher learning will soon be accessible.
Dotillos cited the Senate passage last January 17 of a proposed bill establishing campuses of the coeducational, non-sectarian and state-funded Cebu Technological University (CTU) in the municipalities of Borbon and Liloan in the 5th district of the Province of Cebu.
They will be known as CTU-Borbon Campus and CTU-Liloan Campus.
For his part, re-electionist Vice Mayor Roy D. Melgo said he would focus more on tourism development that will also provide livelihood opportunities.
He expressed openness to the “creative proposals” of further developing the Silmugi River Park and having a theme park.
Old folks in this town would love to relay that “once upon a time a golden ship” would suddenly enter the Silmugi river and then vanish without a trace. (ai/mtvn)
