ROTA Mayor Efraim M. Atalig once again is pleading with the Rota Legislative Delegation to convene and come up with “solutions to our many problems.”

Since the beginning of the 21st Legislature, the four-member Rota delegation has convened two times only — during the organizational session in Jan. 2019 and at another session the following month.

Since then, the delegation sessions that its chairman, Sen. Paul A. Manglona, scheduled had to be cancelled due to lack of quorum. Besides Manglona, his nephew Rep. Donald Manglona was the only other delegation member who would show up for the sessions. Both are members of the minority bloc.

Senate President Victor B. Hocog and Sen. Teresita A. Santos, who are members of the Senate leadership, were usually “unavailable.”

The mayor asked Senator Manglona to hold a delegation meeting on Jan. 14, at 9 a.m. in the Rota mayor’s conference hall “to discuss issues affecting our people of Rota.”

In a letter, the Rota mayor said: “It is my hope that we reach amicable solutions to our many problems. Let us come together and make this New Year a prosperous one for our people.”

Some of the important issues and matters that require action from the Rota delegation are the confirmation of the Rota scholarship board members and the approval of local measures, which include the creation of a medical review board and the 50 percent salary cut for Rota casino gaming commissioners.

Variety was unable to get a comment from Hocog or Santos.
