Bagatsing vows to continue father’s leadership style in Manila
Should he win in May 2016 elections, mayoral aspirant Amado Bagatsing on Monday vowed to continue the “excellent” leadership style of his father, former Manila Mayor Ramon Bagatsing.
“Makakaasa kayo na ipagpapatuloy ko kasama ng buong team ng Ang Bagong Maynila-Team KABAKA ang mahusay at may malasakit na pamamalakad ng aking ama na si dating Manila Mayor Ramon Bagatsing sa ating mahal na lungsod. Pagtulong-tulungan natin na makamit ang tunay na pagbabago sa Maynila,” Manila incumbent 5th District Rep. Bagatsing said on his Facebook post.
Bagatsing also vows to push for pro-poor and pro-business policies in the capital.
The third-termer lawmaker has filed his certificate of candidacy for Manila mayor last October 12 under the local party KABAKA or Kabalikat ng Bayan sa Kaunlaran Foundation with incumbent Manila Councillor Ali Atienza as his running mate.
Ali is the son of former Manila mayor and now Buhay Partylist Rep. Lito Atienza.
