Both presidents waged uncontested candidacies; and both came from proven barangay strongholds of the Chan administration.
On December 11, Tuesday, second termer Barangay Buneg Captain Wilfredo Perreras, former Practical Arts teacher, was officially voted President of the Association of Barangay Captains (ABC) by 31 out of a total of 34 punong-barangays.
Perreras is to take over the Sangguniang Bayan seat vacated by former ABC President Herminigildo Cendana, who was, in turn, voted ABC Vice-President.
On December 6, Thursday, the pony-tailed, curly haired Gemwil Zandrix Nimer, SK chairman of Imbalbalatong, was voted into office by 33 of the 34 SK chairmen. The young Nimer is an Information Science sophomore of St. Louis University of Baguio City, and is the son of 3-termer former Imbalbalatong Barangay Captain William Nimer.
Alipangpang SK chairman Aphel P. Carig is ABC Vice-President.
Gemwil will represent the youth sector at the SB, a seat that had been amply filled for the past 5 years by former SK President April Rose Salinas. Gemwil promises to report on his first day of office at the SB Hall with a new haircut.
