Vico is Twitter’s favorite Sotto. Find out why
The young politiko appears to be paving his own legacy in politics.
Newbie Councilor Vico Sotto, son of actors Vic Sotto and Coney Reyes, shocked many as he filed his candidacy as mayor of Pasig City after just one term in his post.
The 29-year-old will go against Mayor Bobby Eusebio, whose clan has ruled the city for years. The young Sotto is leveraging his candidacy on his call for transparency in the local government, as he shepherded the passage of a Freedom of Information ordinance at the Pasig City Council.
I’m running for Mayor of Pasig City.
Panahon na para baguhin natin ang kultura ng politika sa ating lungsod. Let’s govern with transparency. Bigyan natin ng pagkakataong makilahok ang tao sa governance. Para maramdaman naman ng pinakamahihirap ang pag-asenso ng city. pic.twitter.com/GviSHH4O12

Netizens were quick to praise his passion and bravery and flooded him with messages of support.
“Panalo na yan! Just don’t remind Pasiguenos (?) that you are related to Tito Sotto,” one user said.
“Be the Vico in a world full of Tito,” another added, referring to his uncle, Senate President Tito Sotto.
I think Vico’s conviction and will are far from his uncle. You have my prayers Vico.

Paalala lang iho. Huwag ka sanang magbago sa iyong paninindigan na gawin ang tama. Tama na ang isang Sotto na tuta. Mabuhay ka Vico! Dinadasal ko ang iyong tagumpay!
