He’s pledging clean hands and empty pockets.

Pasig Councilor Vico Sotto is blazing up the campaign trail by denying all sorts of “fake news” swirling around as he goes against incumbent Mayor Bobby Eusebio.

The millennial politiko said rumors have been going around that benefits given to Pasig residents will be forfeited once the Eusebios lose their foothold at city hall.

“Pag kinakalat ng iba ang fake news na mawawala ang benepisyo (katulad ng 3k ng seniors pag December, natatawa na lang ako. Una, pondo ito ng publiko; hindi galing sa bulsa ng politiko; Pangalawa, may mga batas tayo para rito,” Sotto said.

He also made a tall promise that’s bound to be a head-turner: “Pangatlo, kung ako ang mayor hindi ako tatanggap ng kickback. Walang ‘tongpats.’ Ibig sabihin, ang mababawasan ay yung presyo ng mga bibilhin; at madadagdagan ang mga benepisyo!”


Will the people buy his pitch?
