THE son of the late Moncada Vice Mayor Jaime Duque, Dean Michael, officially joined the Moncada Municipal Council as its eight member after taking his oath before Vice Mayor Ramon Benito “RB” Aquino during the Sangguniang Bayan’s (SB) first regular session for 2023 on January 9.
In a statement, Duque vowed to uphold integrity and excellence in the furtherance of public service.
“Aking susundan ang yapak ng aking Ama na si Late Vice Mayor Jaime “Jiggs” O. Duque na minahal ninyong lahat pagdating sa serbisyo publiko” he said.
Duque likewise expressed his profound gratitude to Governor Susan Yap, Moncada Mayor Estelita M. Aquino, and the whole of Sangguniang Bayan of Moncada led by Vice Mayor Aquino.
In his first SB session, Duque participated in the deliberations of various measures pending before the SB.
Duque succeeded as a member of the council in view of the vacancy created by the ascension of then-councilor Aquino to the position of vice mayor and presiding officer of the Sangguniang Bayan.—Arvin F. M. Cabalu
