She later on went to fulfill the family’s brand of service.

Iloilo Vice Governor Christine “Tingting” Garin may sound ungrateful, but there was one point in her life where she hated carrying their politiko surname.

In an interview with blogger Andrea Guanco, She revealed that she felt that her last name was a huge disadvantage to her, saying that people were often “intimidated” by her upon knowing that she’s part of a political dynasty in the province.

But it all worked in her favor when she realized her true calling.

“While most look at this as politics, I look at this as public service,” Garin said.

After three as mayor of Guimbal, Garin is up for reelection as vice governor. Her siblings are also running this May 2019.
