Mayor Osmeña to politikos: Don’t put faces on envelopes of government cash aid


Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña warned candidates in the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections he will not hesitate to cut ties with them if they put their faces in envelopes used for cash aid.

The Cebu politiko said Bando Osmeña-Pundok Kauswagan (BOPK) supporters should not be “epal” politikos.

Reports have reached Osmeña that some candidates have been putting their faces on envelopes.

“I don’t want to see your faces or sample ballots there in the envelope,” Osmeña said.

“It’s not their money. It’s the money of the people of Cebu. I’m giving them fair warning. If any of my supporters put in stickers or whatever, I’ll cut them off,” he added.
