0 197

Pavia Vice Mayor Raymund Gumban is considering a run for mayor in the 2019 midterm elections.

Gumban, now in his second term as vice mayor, would face Sangguniang Bayan member Luigi Gorriceta if he decides to run for the mayor’s office.

SB member Gorriceta is a cousin of Mayor Michael Gorriceta, who is running for congressman of the 2nd District.

In a Panay News article, Gumban said the Gorriceta family name is not a convenient passport to becoming the Pavia mayor.

Pavianhons, he added, would support candidates with strong commitment to public service.
