Bing Leonardia assigns Jose Mari Chan as Bacolod mayor for a day
It’s his way of honoring the Chinese community.
Mayor Evelio “Bing” Leonardia willingly allowed someone else to take his post in Bacolod for a day. It turns out that it was his idea of how he can honor the Chinese population in Bacolod City, as he gave popular singer Jose Mari Chan the distinction of serving as Honorary Mayor in time for Chinese New Year.
Leonardia warmly welcomed Chan — whose hit songs include Christmas in our Hearts and Please be Careful with my Heart — to his office at the Bacolod City Government Center that Friday, a gesture to honor the local Chinese community.
