It’s official: Belmonte endorses Joy-Gian tandem for QC in 2019
A second-generation Belmonte is hoping to lead the city during the next term.
Veteran Congressman and former House Speaker Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte, Jr. spent Monday partying with family and friends as he turned 81. While there, he also chose to announce that he is anointing the pair of his daughter Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte and Councilor Gian Sotto as the next politiko tandem for Quezon City.
Joy and Gian, who have been making several public appearances together, will be running as mayor and vice mayor during the 2019 elections, replacing third-term Mayor Herbert Bautista and moving up the politiko ladder.
