Mayor Espinosa announces mayoralty bid in 2019
Iloilo City Mayor Jose Espinosa III on June 18 confirmed he will run for mayor in 2019.
The Iloilo City politiko’s announcement will pit him against his brother-in-law, Iloilo City Representative Jerry Treñas.
Treñas earlier announced he is gunning to be Iloilo City mayor next year.
Espinosa said he has no plans to run for Iloilo City representative, calling it a post for “intelligent people.”
“Syempre eh alangan man ta mag-congressman,” he said.
“Para lang na sa mga maalam guro ah,” Espinosa added.
But the Iloilo City mayor said nothing is set in stone.
“Ila man na ya. Kada isa may kwan man na ya. Ang pulitika ya kun diin na ya ang huyop sang hangin, dira man na tanan. Ti indi mo na mabal-an ang hangin kay bal-an mo gatiyog,” he said.
