Nagcarlan Vice Mayor Rexon Arevalo ordered suspended, says former Mayor Arcasetas

Former Nagcarlan Mayor Lourdes Arcasetas said the Office of the Ombudsman has ordered the suspension of Vice Mayor Rexon Arevalo in connection with a complaint she filed against him.

The suspension for simple misconduct would be for one month and one day and Arevalo would be without pay for this period, said Arcasetas, who shared a portion of the Ombudsman ruling on Facebook.

Arcasetas said she filed the complaint against Arevalo for getting medicine from the Department of Health Regional Office and distributing these to the public using his name and not of the local government.

She said a memorandum circular from the Department of the Interior and Local Government prohibits the placement of names, images, photos, or initials of officials in government projects and properties.

“Base sa Decision ay may ginawang paglabag ang Pangalawang Punongbayan Rexon V. Arevalo sa pamimigay ng mga gamot na may nakalagay na: ‘Sa Kalusugan, Aksyon ni Rexon Gamot para sa Nayon, Handog ni: Vice-Mayor Rexon V. Arevalo,’” she said.

She said the suspension order has been served to Arevalo.

She also said the Ombudsman’s decision showed that she was right to correct improper actions.

“Simula pa lamang ng aking panunungkulan noong ako ay maupo bilang Punongbayan ng Nagcarlan ay itinama natin ang mga maling sistema sa pagseserbisyo publiko. Ang Decision na ito ng Ombudsman ang patunay na tama ang aking ipinaglalaban,” she said.
