Results of local polls give hope

05:01 AM May 15, 2019

The emerging results in the local elections in San Juan, Manila and Pasig have given me back faith in the voters.

Finally, we see the end of decadeslong political dynasties, especially here in Pasig where the Eusebio family had ruled uninterrupted since 1992 and had put their insignia (“E”) everywhere. A change through Vico Sotto is just appropriate.


Bigotry makes me vomit. The transport policy was deficient in Pasig with the ineffective code system. From our residential area in Greenwoods, you cannot drive your car for a few days if you have the wrong number. Too bad if you can afford only one car and not several.

It’s good to see that people are starting to rethink at the local level. This is a beginning, and a source of hope for 2022.
