Bittersweet! Joy Belmonte bids goodbye to staff who will work for Vico Sotto


Quezon City Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte has let go of some of her staff before she assumes office as mayor on June 30.

The staff’s departure, however, was for a noble reason: They will be working with Pasig City Mayor-elect Vico Sotto.

In a Facebook post, Belmonte admitted she is “extremely saddened” that her staff, who helped her win three Local Legislative Awards for Most Outstanding City Council, will be leaving.

However, she said she is also proud that they left to help Sotto, who ran on a platform of good governance.

“I beam with gladness to note that i have taught and trained them well. Service above self at all times,” she said.
