It’s official: Garins drop Defensor, anoint Biron as next Iloilo gov
It was a sad but necessary break-up.
Mayor Oscar “Oca” Garin Sr. of Guimbal has finally put an end to speculations and has revealed his clan’s alliance for the 2019 elections.
The powerful Garin clan will be supporting incumbent Rep. Ferjenel Biron as the next Iloilo governor, ending long ties with Gov. Arthur Defensor, Sr. in the process.
“We treasure our friendship. But I became frank with Arthur Defensor and told him, ‘Sorry Gov. For so many reasons, we cannot be with you’,” the patriarch was quoted as saying in a report.
May the best family win in May!
