0 969

Unlike many local politikos preoccupied about their campaigns, Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian remains focused on running the city.

Gatchalian tweeted that he doesn’t have to campaign for congressman of Valenzuela’s first district because he has no opponent.

The congressional seat in Valenzuela’s first district is currently occupied by Gatchalian’s brother, Wes, who’s running for city mayor.

“Sa unang araw ng campaign, nais ko samantalahin ang pagkakataon magpasalamat sa sambayanang Valenzuela sa tiwala na ginawad niyo sa akin…dahil po sa tiwala niyo wala po akong katungali sa halalan na eto. Sa mga darating na araw makakaasa po kayo na patuloy ko pong Patatakbuhin ang ating cityhall…marami pa pong projects na tatapusin bago ako magtapos. Salamat po!” Gatchalian said.

Despite running unopposed, the mayor joined other members of his Team Red as they kicked off their respective electoral campaigns on Friday, March 25.
