Mayor Loot unsure about seeking reelection in 2019
Daanbantayan Mayor Vicente Loot may no longer seek reelection in 2019.
The Cebu politiko cited security reasons for the development.
“I preferred to lay low for a while and attend to my personal security reasons,” Loot said.
The Daanbantayan mayor was previously accused by President Rodrigo Duterte of being involved in the illegal drug trade.
Loot’s stepson, Cebu Board Member Sun Shimura said they will look for a replacement candidate should the Cebu politiko push through with his plan not to run next year.
Shimura was a former three-term mayor of Daanbantayan.
