Wag mag-akusa! Cynthia Villar says hubby Manny has no influence over BF Resort Village

By Eileen Mencias

Senator Cynthia Villar denied any link between her husband and the BF Resort Village Homeowners Association (BRFV HOA).

In an open letter to a resident of the subdivision dated July 2, Cynthia said it made her “cringe” reading that her husband, ultra bilyonaryo Many Villar was associated with the previous directors of the BFRV HOA.

“Manny Villar retired from politics in 2013 and has been leading a relatively quiet life away from the limelight. He barely appears to give public interviews. He is an ordinary citizen, busy in taking care of his family and businesses, much like everyone else,” the senator said.

She insists the country’s richest man has no influence over BFRV HOA even as she cited several projects “the Villar family built” for the community during the long tenure of the previous board that included the construction of a two-storey clubhouse, a senior citizens office, a two-storey Mason’s building, a fire station, and several covered courts.

“Yearly, I consistently provided the budget for the repair and improvement of the roads inside the BFRV. The bridge that connects our Farm School at Vatican was constructed and paid for by the Villar family. I personally donated two motorcycles, one for BF Resort Homeowners Association and one for Barangay Talon II to supervise traffic and parking in our two major roads Gloria Diaz and BF Resort Avenue-Vatican,” she pointed out.

During the term of the senator’s son as the head of the Department of Public Works and Highways, the private subdivision was the beneficiary of massive road repair projects.
