LUBA, Abra: A former advertising manager of The Manila Times is setting her sights on a seat in the municipal council of this fifth-class municipality to be able to help poor residents through sustainable government programs and projects.

Crisma Valera-Quiblado, niece of former provincial board member Victor Valera, served as the advertising manager of paper for special projects from 2002 to 2003 prior to working as the advertising manager of the Northern Luzon bureau from 2004 to 2007.

In 2008, Quiblado and her family transferred to Bangued, Abra, because her husband, an employee of the Land Transportation Office, was assigned to the provincial office.

She will be gunning for a seat in the municipal council under the Nacionalista Party of reelectionist Mayor Rosalina Bizcara.

Luba is one of the 16 upland municipalities of Abra province where farming is the primary source of income of residents.
