Treñas believes ‘experience’ is his edge in 2019 polls
Incumbent Rep. Jerry Treñas sees political experience as benefit in his run for mayor’s office in the 2019 elections.
Treñas and his Team Uswag line-up filed their Certificates of Candidacy (COC) on Wednesday at the Commission on Elections office.
His team is composed of former councilor Julienne Barondo for congresswoman and Vice Mayor Jeffrey Ganzon for vice mayor, and reelectionists Lady Julie Grace Baronda, Ely Estante, Armand Parcon and Jay Treñas; Reyland Hervias Javellana, Rodulph Jeffrey Ganzon, Gilbert Garcia, Allan Zaldiva, and Atty. Rommel Duron for councilor.
“We are experienced, in terms of pushing for economic development in the city,” the politiko-abogado said in a Panay News article.
“The development of the city does not stop. The development of the city can only begin if there is long-term planning,” he added.
Treñas is running for mayor against incumbent Mayor Jose Espinosa III, Dr. Pacita Gonzalez, and former barangay captain Esteban Abitang.
