“Until now, my mind can’t accept it [the result] because for me, it’s an additional burden… but it’s a challenge,” said Engr. Malindog on being the new president during the election of new set of Samar State Universtiy- Personnel Association officers for C.Y. 2016-2018 last June 24, Friday, at the SSU Maceda Gymnasium.
He got the highest number of votes, 69, over his co-nominees Lourdes Del Monte, 45, Maita Cabueňas, 2, Pedro Cabrales, 30, Marlon Refuncion, 15, Jonah Gay V. Pedraza, 6.
