New Leyeco II GM Named

TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte - The Leyte II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Leyeco II), the biggest and most successful electric cooperative in Leyte and in the Eastern Visayas region has a new general manager to run its affairs.

Leyeco II outgoing general manager Engineer Vicente Majadillas Jr. said Leyeco II institutional manager Macel Cumpio Avestruz, has been named to take over his post after he (Majadillas) retired from his post with the electric cooperative effective last December 31, 2012.

Majadillas, who ran the affairs of the electric cooperative for six months, said he was able to effect several accomplishments including the reduction of systems loss from an average of 14 to 11 percent, as well as improved collection efficiency from 92 to 95 percent, from June to November 2012.

Avestruz, who rose from the ranks in Leyeco II to become the electric cooperative's institutional manager, and now its just-designated general manager, gave her commitment to do her best in her new position.

She expressed her appreciation for the support and trust of Leyeco II's board of directors and employees even as she appealed for the cooperation and assistance of the electric cooperative members.

Leyeco II, which currently charges the lowest electricity rates throughout Visayas regions and even in comparison with rates charged by Meralco in Metro Manila, covers the city of Tacloban and the neighboring towns of Palo and Babatngon, both in Leyte province.

Meanwhile, Garcia reiterated that while she wants the tension at the Capitol to end, she was still not stepping down.

Garcia and her family spent New Year inside the provincial capitol as she admitted it was "not normal" for her and her family to spend New Year's Eve at her "office" in defiance of Malacañang's suspension order for grave abuse of authority.
