Consumer elects District I Director
Two thousand nine hundred eighteen (2,918) member consumers or 41% of the voting population exercised their right to vote in the Directorial Election of Cagayan II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CAGELCO II) for District I held last March 14, 2015 covering the municipalities of Claveria and Sta. Paraxedes.
It was a battle between Mr. Marvin Velasquez, a registered electrical engineer and Ms. Mary Ann Canosa, a retired employee of CAGELCO II who took the challenge to represent the member-consumers of District I.
As early as 7:30 in the morning, member consumers went to their assigned precints to cast their vote to show support on their chosen candidate. Some MC’s believed that this election will be able to help them bring their concerns to the Cooperative. “Para may tutulong sa problema namin sa kuryente”, Arseli Rodrigo, a voter said.
At exactly 3:00 pm, 22 voting centers simultaneously opened the ballot boxes and counted the votes headed by the Chairman of each Precint Election Committee (PECOM) who were public school teachers of the said towns.
As soon as the counting was finished, District Election Committee (DECOM) led by Mr. Fredelino Agpuldo, DECOM chairman, together with his colleagues, Mr. Joseph Tumaneng, secretary; Ms. Jovy Grace Crisostomo, member; and Mr. Framel de Peralta, member; tallied the votes at Claveria West Central School. Mr. Velasquez garnered 1, 058 votes while Ms. Canosa got a total of 1, 860 votes.
A difference of 802 votes declared Ms. Mary Ann Canosa as the elected director for District I.
Board of Director In Action
To bring CAGELCO II closer to the people is what Dir. Romeo E. Castillejos’ mission as the president of the Board of Directors.
As a retired teacher, Dir. Castillejos reaches out to his former colleagues in the Academe to promote CAGELCO II in high hopes of eliminating criticisms (or may we call it misinformation in the society). He believes that through education, Member Consumers would understand and support the Cooperative’s endeavors.
During the Division Management Committee held last February 17, 2015 at Pattao National High School, Buguey, Pres. Romeo Castillejos made an effort to meet Dr. Gilbert Tong, Schools Division Superintendent of Cagayan; Mr. Jose Talosig, Administrative Officer of Cagayan; and Ms. Marites Llanes, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent of Cagayan.
This act of Direk “Romy” sends the message that CAGELCO II is not only an electric distribution utility but also a cooperative that sustains the community through partnership with different agencies.

National Electrificaton Awareness Month
Ngayong buwan ng Agosto, ang CAGELCO II ay nakikiisa sa pagdiriwang ng National Electrification Awareness Month na may temang “More Power at 45”.
Taong 1890 nang makaabot ang Elektrisidad sa Pilipinas. Ngunit iilan lamang ang nakararanas nito, karamihan ay ang mga tao sa siyudad. Kung kaya’t taong 1964, sa kagustuhan na mapa- ilaw ang buong bansa, humingi ng tulong ang dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos sa Estados Unidos upang mapabilis ang pagsasagawa nito.
Sa isang kontrata ng National Rural Electric Cooperatives Association o NRECA ng Estados Unidos, ito ay naisapatupad. Dalawang Rural Electric Cooperatives ang naitayo. Ito ay ang Misamis Oriental Rural Electric Service Cooperative, Inc. o MORESCO I at ang Victorias-Manapla-Cadiz Rural Electric Service Cooperative, Inc. o VRESCO.
At ito na ngayon ang naging batayan ng iba pang mga Kooperatiba sa ating bansa kabilang na ang CAGELCO II na may tatlumput limang taon (35 years) ng nagbibigay liwanag sa mga kabahayan sa hilagang bahagi ng Probinsiya ng Cagayan at Distrito ng Apayao.

The CAGAYAN II ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC. in its 34 years of existence has finally published a book that retells the story of CAGELCO II in the field of Rural Electrification and beyond.

ISD Manager, BLANDINA Y. MADAMBA, during its book launch on September 01, 2014, proudly presented the book which she described as an emblem of CAGELCO II’s triumphs over failure, success over downfall and victory over obstacles. Ms. Madamba together with CAGELCO II Board President, Mr. Romeo E. Castillejos, visited the Local Government Units within the coverage area to personally give copies of the book to the Mayors as strong partners in our aim to continuously provide efficient and reliable service to our Member Consumers.
