BUKIDNON POLITICS – It’s the “secret” that everyone knows. Department of Agriculture (DA) Undersecretary Jesus “Jess” Paras is eyeing a congressional seat in the first district of Bukidnon and this early, he’s making his presence felt.

Looks like incumbent Bukidnon First District Rep. Candido Pancrudo will face quite a competitor come May 2010. That is, if three-term Bukidnon Gov. Jose Ma. Zubiri, Jr. won’t change his mind and opt to run for congressman in next year’s elections instead of running for vice governor as he earlier announced.

Just recently, Jesus Emmanuel Paras launched his “Paras People’s Program” in the municipality of Talakag via a medical mission. According to reports, thousands of people flocked to the San Isidro National High School.

But who is DA Undersecretary Jess Paras exactly? His CV indicates that he used to be connected to the Philippine Coconut Authority and the National Irrigation Administration. He was also a former president of the Cagayan de Oro Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Oro Chamber).

Except probably for the programs geared towards Bukidnon farmers that his office implemented, I’m not too familiar with the things he has done for Bukidnon, particularly for the residents in the first district.

Can anyone share their thoughts please?

  • Zubiri Vs. Paras

    It is Zubiri vs. Paras in First district of Bukidnon. If Paras is just the opponent of Zubiri, then Paras should atleast have 10 sacks of 1000 peso bills.

    Gov. Zubiri’s political standing in Bukidnon is beyond question. He had so many projects in Bukidnon. His Philhealth cards is so effective tool in his campaign.

    Even Former Rep. Neric Acosta lost to him in First district of Bukidnon. If Paras wanted a defeat, then he must try in First district.

    Rep. Pancrudo will not run for reelection. He will be giving way to Gov. Zubiri. Rep. Pancrudo on the other hand will be running for Vice Governor.

    If Paras will run for Governor he will be opposing Rep. Joey Zubiri, the son of Gov. Zubiri.

    Rep. Paras entry to Bukidnon is a great Disaster.
