Imboys of Bohol lose bids in 3 local posts
TAGBILARAN CITY — A local dynasty in Bohol has crumbled after three family members lost in last Monday’s polls.
None of the Imboys, who ran for various elective positions, made it last elections.
The patriarch, incumbent Loay Vice Mayor Brigido Imboy, failed to make it in the magic 8 for the municipal council.
The Commission on Elections data showed that he was 11th in the ranking.
His wife, Rosemarie Lim-Imboy, lost to a lawyer in the mayoral race in Loay town.
She received 4,888 votes, while her opponent, Hilario Ayuban Jr. got 5,732 votes.
Three hours after the counting, Rosemarie posted a statement on her Facebook account, congratulating Ayuban for his victory.
Ayuban is an incumbent two-termer councilor of Loay. He was a former Sangguniang Kabataan chairman. Before he joined politics, he was chief of staff of former Vice Gov. Julius Cesar Herrera from 2007-2010.
Imboy’s daughter, incumbent Mayor Rochelle Brigitte Imboy-Abutazil, lost in her reelection bid. She garnered 5,008 votes, while her opponent, Rodrigo Cubarol Jr., had 5,430 votes.
Brigido was elected board member, municipal councilor and then vice mayor. It was during his stint as councilor when he was chosen president of the Philippine Councilors League-Bohol.
Rosemarie, on the other hand, was town mayor for three consecutive terms (2007-2016) before running for governor but lost to outgoing Gov. Edgar Chatto in 2016. (Editor: Leti Boniol)
