Leonardia still has no presidential bet
Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said that he has not endorsed any presidential candidate for the May 9 elections.
“As we approach the homestretch of the election campaign, more fake news and disinformation are becoming a daily fare on mainstream and social media channels both in the local and national fronts,” said Leonardia.
The mayor made the clarification after reports claimed that he endorsed the presidential run of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso, who visited him at his office Thursday. (https://bit.ly/371CQ8Y)
“Moreno is my colleague in the League of Cities of the Philippines of which I am the National President,” he explained.
Leonardia said it has been his policy to open Bacolod to all national candidates no matter which political spectrum they represent.
“The visit of Moreno, just like those of the other presidential aspirants and those running for other national positions who came to see me at the Bacolod City Government Center before him, was welcomed by Bacolodnons,” he furthered.
