Sibonga Mayor Lionel Bacaltos expressed “101 percent support” to the Davide administration for 2016 reelection.
In his visit together with barangay captains of Sibonga, Bacaltos expressed that their town fully supports Cebu Governor Hilario Davide III’s projects and directions.
“Nakita man gyud nato nga maayo gyud pagkadala ni Gov. ang atong probinsiya sa Sugbo (We saw that Gov. Davide handled Cebu Province very well),” he explained.
However, he clarified that this support doesn’t equate to a transfer in political party.
“Sa pagka-karon, wala pa gyud. Maghuwat pa sab mi ni former Congressman Eduardo Gullas kon unsa iyang mga plano (As of now, there’s no plan yet. We are still waiting for Gullas’ plans), he explained.
In an interview, Davide said that for him, transferring to another political party is not necessary. What’s important is the support from the local government units, even if not of the same party.
“We need the support of everybody. It’s useless if our programs don’t have their support. Ma-alkansi man gud ang constituents (the constituents will be affected),” he said.
