Pasig Vice Mayor to run against Vico Sotto
Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto is seeking reelection in 2022 and just recently, Vice Mayor Iyo Bernardo declared that he will run for Mayor also.
Sotto is will be running with former Pasig City representative Dodot Jaworski as his Vice Mayor. Both of them have already filed their certificate of candidacy for the election next year.
In a recent interview by ABS-CBN reporter Kat Domingo, Bernardo stated that he will run against the incumbent mayor. He said that during the interview that there is nothing personal in his decision as he and Sotto consider each other as friends but he is just giving the residents of Pasig another option.
He also stated that he realized amid the pandemic that the lives of the people in the city have no improvement. Vico Sotto shared the thread of this interview of the Pasig Vice Mayor.
In his caption in his Twitter post, the son of veteran showbiz personalities Vic Sotto and Coney Reyes stressed his “pakiusap” to his supporters after thanking them for the overwhelming support that he received.
He stressed to his constituents that he is still focusing on his duties despite that the election season is already starting. The young mayor also reminded them to avoid “mudslinging”. He said that attacking one’s personal being is not good but he is willing to talk about his work or track record.
Sotto also pointed out the importance of fact-checking. “MAGING MAPANURI, lalo na sa pekeng balita. Hindi porket may “quote” ay totoo na ito. (Alam niyo, yung gumagawa ng fake news at fake quotes noong 2019, halos sila pa rin yan ngayon),” the Pasig City Mayor said.
The young politician also reminded that convincing can be done but not dictating when it comes to dealing with people from the other side of the fence.
The Mayor also stressed the importance of observing the health protocols, as well as to spend less during the campaign period. “Tandaan- ang gagastos ng malaki sa kampanya, ay malaki rin ang babawiin. (Ok lang tawagin akong kuripot, at least hindi magnanakaw. Ang importante, nagagamit sa tama at ng buo ang pera ng taumbayan.),” Vico Sotto said.
