Lac­son skep­ti­cal of op­po­nent’s plans to re­open Da­con­gco­gon Sugar Cen­tral

Watchmen Daily Journal - - Top Stories -

Can­di­date for Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal gov­er­nor, in­cum­bent Vice Gov­er­nor Eu­ge­nio Jose Lac­son, said he is skep­ti­cal of his op­po­nent’s plan to re­open the Da­con­gco­gon Sugar Cen­tral in Ka­bankalan City.

While gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date, Atty. Rolando Parpa, who chairs the Da­con­gco­gon Farm­ers Pro­duc­ers Co­op­er­a­tive, said he is frus­trated by the prob­lems farm­ers have to deal with, par­tic­u­larly those in the sugar in­dus­try, Lac­son said sugar cen­tral op­er­a­tions can only re­sume if there is an in­ter­ested in­vestor.

He added, restart­ing op­er­a­tions would be dif­fi­cult since the South­ern Ne­gros De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion Sugar Re­fin­ing Mill also op­er­ates in the same city.

Parpa, a na­tive of Pon­teve­dra, said he is run­ning on be­half of farm­ers./DGB,
