Ex-Isabela mayor Dy, 60

By |


CAUAYAN CITY, Philippines—Mayor Benjamin Dy, who served as Isabela governor from 1992 to 2001, died of complications from emphysema at the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Metro Manila early Saturday, a close aide said.

Dy, 60, had been suffering from emphysema for years and died at the hospital at 2:45 a.m.  Saturday, said Nestor de Villa, general services officer of Cauayan City.

Relatives said a wake has been set for three nights at the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City before Dy’s remains are taken to Cauayan City. Dy is survived by wife, Cecilia, and 16 children.

De Villa said Dy would have run unopposed for a second term as Cauayan mayor but his son, Bernard, a businessman and civic leader, replaced him on Dec. 21 last year due to the mayor’s failing health.

Dy was a member of the Dy political clan, whose members held various elective posts in the province since the 1960s. His brothers are incumbent Gov. Faustino Dy III; former Gov. Faustino Dy Jr., who served from 2001 to 2004, and a former Isabela representative; incumbent Isabela Rep. Napoleon Dy; former Cauayan City Mayor Caesar Dy; and Cauayan Councilor Victor Dy, the city’s barangay league federation president.

The late mayor’s sisters, Arlene Dy-Maranan and Eloisa Dy-Valle, did not enter public service.

    Matagal ng puro Dy ang naka puwesto sa Isabela. Isang tanong lang, yumaman ba ang Isabela? Kung hindi alam nyo na ang dahilan. Ang mga Dy ay milyonaryo na, ang mga taga Isabela ay mahirap pa rin, puro sisi sa gobyerno ang ginagawa pero laging Dy nman ang binuboto.

    Wag mag tanga-tangahan mga tga-Isabela pinakawalan nyo na si Grace Padaca, nsan na kayo ngaun, sa kankungan pa rin, ayusin nyo pag boto nyo.

      Ang Isabela ay isa sa top-10 mayaman na probinsiya.
      Sangayun ako sa sinabi mo na yumaman ng husto ang mga Dy dahil sa politika. Subalit kung may tanga na mga botante sa Isabela ay gayundin sa bawat sulok ng PH. Ginagamit ng mga polituku ang nakurakut na yaman ng bayan at pag-gamit sa huweteng para pambili ng boto. 
      Mahigit sa 80% ng mga botante ay siyang nagdedisisyun sa botohan kung sino ang siyang mananalo. Kasama sa mga porsientong ito ay ang mga botanteng nagbebenta ng boto, tumatanaw ng utang na loob sa naibibigay na mga politiko, at bomoboto base sa kasikatan ng politiko (artista halimbawa). 
      Ang kototohanang ito ay hindi lamang sa Isabela nangyayari.

    Talagang ganyan kahit gaano naging mayaman dahil sa “pagsisilbi ng tapat” sa bayan pasasaan man ay kukunin din ang buhay na utang. 
    Kaya babala sa mga politukung gustong maupo habang-buhay at “buong puso magsisilbi” para maging malapit sa kaban ng bayan, ito ay maaring dahilan ng mapait na kamatayan.
    Sumalangit nawa ang kaluluwa ni Ex-Mayor-Gov Ben.
