Leonardia gets ex-mayor’s endorsement
Former Bacolod City Mayor Luzviminda Valdez threw her support behind the re-election bid of Mayor Evelio Leonardia for the 2022 elections.
Her support came as a surprise and a big boost to Leonardia’s mayoral campaign as they used to belong to different political camps.
Last Wednesday, Valdez visited the incumbent mayor at his Bacolod City Government Center office to formally announce her support. (https://bit.ly/3Aopn5g)
“It is heart-warming that former Mayor Joy (Valdez) is giving me her support. I cannot overemphasize my gratitude to her for coming out to endorse me. I am humbled by her gesture,” said Leonardia.
Valdez, who’s known for her advocacy for people living with disability, served as Bacolod mayor in 2001 until 2004.
