Leonardia: 34 motorcycles
to be distributed at right time

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia said yesterday the 34 Kymco motorcycles being kept at the storehouse of the Bacolod City College will be distributed at the right time.

He said the motorcycles were donated by Bacolod's sister city, Keelung in Taiwan, and still have to be checked if they are in good working condition.

The mayor said they will be turned over to various offices of the city government in the presence of the Taiwanese ambassador.

There are no specific beneficiaries as of now, he said, but he has already made inquiries as to which offices need motorcycles.

Leonardia said there is nothing wrong about keeping the motorcycles in storage for now, contrary to the claims of his critics, that these are being kept for a different purpose.

"I don't think it's an issue, but maybe it is to those who put malice in it," the mayor said. "As the saying goes," he added, "Thinkers are doers."


Meanwhile, Leonardia said he has appointed Ramon Lozana as the new head of the Public Information Office. Lozana replaced Elsie Jolingan who is now assigned to the City Tourism Office to concentrate more on the tourism thrusts of the city, he said.*NLG
