BACOOR, Cavite - This booming town is now the fifth city of Cavite province.
The local Commission on Elections (Comelec) proclaimed the town as the newest city of the province at 12:30 a.m. yesterday with the presence of top locality officials.
Comelec Officer Aniceta Laceda made the historical declaration after the concluded cityhood referendum garnered 36,226 “yes” votes as against the “no” votes with only 3,854.
Among those present during the proclamation were Mayor Strike B. Revilla, his sister-in-law District Representative Lani Mercado-Revilla, her son Provincial Board Member Ramon “Jolo” Revilla, Councilors Reynaldo M. Fabian and Reynaldo D. Palabrica, and other ofﬁcials.
The Revillas, including Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla, who came shortly after Laceda’s proclamation, were elated by the proclamation and have thanked the supporters on the campaign to make the municipality a city.
Laceda said that the senator arrived, unaware that the canvassing ended and the proclamation would be made much earlier.
The Comelec proclamation made the fast-progressing Bacoor Cavite’s fifth city after Cavite City, the province’s former capital, Trece Martires City, the Capitol site; prime tourist destination Tagaytay City and Dasmariñas City, the most populated and deemed richest in the area in terms of income and development.
