Jerry Treñas regains seat as Iloilo City mayor


Rep. Jerry Treñas is ready to bring Iloilo City to the next level.

Treñas issued this statement as he emerged victorious in the mayoralty race, defeating his brother-in-law and incumbent Mayor Jose “Joe” Espinosa III in yesterday’s midterm polls.

Based on the final and official tally results received by the Iloilo City Board of Canvassers, Treñas received a total of 134,143 votes while Espinosa got 65,724 votes.

Dra. Pacita Gonzalez, on one hand, finished third with only 11,934 votes.

“I cannot contain the happiness I feel right now knowing that the people of Iloilo City did not leave me alone in this journey,” he told POLITIKO. “Our victory is not just the victory of Team Uswag, but victory of the Ilonggos.”
