Seeks Board seat instead
As the elections for leadership of the Philippine Independence Day Council, Inc. (PIDCI) nears and heats up, Tambi Wycoco, who originally announced he would be seeking the presidency has decided to seek, instead, one of the seven to-be-vacated seats in the Board of Directors of PIDCI.
Asked the reason for the change of heart, Wycoco, said one has to understand the politics of PIDCI to come up with the logical reason. He added that over the last months when he started telling people he wanted to run for President of PIDCI, he was repeatedly told he could not win against one of the candidates for President. Wycoco said, realization and reality had set in.
So he changed course, and seeks, along with his original group of candidates a seat on the Board of Directors. Wycoco said, he can still do many of the improvements he wants to introduce to the operations of PIDCI while being on the Board.
Wycoco boasts of his extensive experience in the operations of PIDCI, having served on its Board of Directors for a total of five (5) years. He had been an active volunteer in the annual staging of the Philippine Independence Anniversary celebrations from the time of the original Philippine Independence Day Committee, the original ad hoc organization under the auspices of the Philippine Consulate General that started the yearly multi-event, almost-year-long celebrations in 1990 up to the present day which has been, since 2002, managed and presented by the incorporated PIDCI (Philippine Independence Day Council, Inc.)
Aside from Wycoco, those in his group seeking a seat on the PIDCI Board of Directors for 2017 to 2019 are: Robert Aguirre, Rachell Bañez, Eduardo Cabello, Albert Diala, Art Diongon, and Laura Garcia. (A press release from the office of Mr. Tambi Wycoco)
