Jeannie, Ricky Sandoval say their politiko careers do not end in 2019
Expect them to make a comeback in three years.
Politiko couple Vice Mayor Jeannie Sandoval and husband Malabon Rep. Ricky Sandoval both ended up defeated during the May 13 polls, with the Duterte magic seeming lost among city residents.
While the pair has conceded to reelected Mayor Lenlen Oreta and Rep. Jaye Noel, Jeannie said this won’t be the last from their end.
“Ang aming mithiin na makamit ng Malabon ang tunay na pagbabago ay hindi natatapos sa eleksyong ito,” she said on Facebook. “Hindi matutuldukan ang aming pangarap na manaig ang kapayapaan, kaayusan at kaunlaran sa lungsod. Hindi tayo nagpadaig sa pananakot, pangamba, at paninira dahil alam naming kayo ang aming kakampi at hindi n’yo kami binigo hanggang sa huli dahil patuloy ninyo kaming pinagtatanggol at pinaniniwalaan.”
She even flexed their achievements while in their posts: there’s the new Malabon Mathematics and Science High School, the expansion of the San Lorenzo Ruiz General Hospital, and a train station via the Philippine National Railways.
“Kaya muli po, maraming salamat sa suporta at buong pusong pagmamahal. Hindi dito nagtatapos ang serbisyong #TeamKakampi, hindi ito ang tuldok sa mga salitang aming binitiwan,” Sandoval added.
They have lots of time to prepare for the next elections.
