Former Negros Occidental Congressman Alfredo “Albee” Benitez is running for mayor of Bacolod City in 2022.

“I have seen enough, I have heard enough. The clamor of the people is undeniable,” said Benitez.

“This is why I’m officially announcing that I am running for mayor of Bacolod,” he added. (

Benitez will challenge incumbent Mayor Evelio Leonardia for the seat.

Meanwhile, Benitez confirmed he secured a cedula or community tax certificate from Barangay Mandalagan and paid P525 for it.

Three complainants earlier questioned the transfer of voter’s registration of Benitez and his community tax, an amount far too small for his net worth.

“They can check my income tax return because that is the basis of my cedula,” the ex-solon said.
