Joe III, Jerry reconciling?


Iloilo City Mayor Jose “Joe” Espinosa said he is open fore reconciliation with his former ally now turned rival, Rep. Jerry Treñas.

Espinosa and Treñas, who fought for the mayor’s seat in yesterday’s midterm elections, took shots at each other early in the campaign.

There should be unity especially after the elections, the mayor said in The Daily Guardian report.

“Everything should go back to normal after the elections. We should work together amid differences,” he added.

Treñas, for his part, thumbed down the possibility of reconciliation with Espinosa.

“I find this as the most vicious elections in my career. I will never forget this and all the attacks against me and my family. Let us move forward,” he said in an interview over Bombo Radyo.

Espinosa lost to Treñas by 68,419 votes based on the final canvassing results.
