44 Cebu mayors endorse BBM-Sara Uniteam

Forty-four mayors from the Province of Cebu have endorsed the BBM-Sara Uniteam as their official bet in the upcoming 2022 national elections.

Presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. and his running-mate vice-presidential aspirant Inday Sara Duterte were in Cebu on Friday as guests of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) during its regional planning conference.

"In behalf of all the 44 mayors of the province of Cebu, particular to the mayors of the 5th district, as well as my fellow mayors in the Visayas, for whom I am the national vice-president, we hereby express our unequivocal support to you, for your candidacy and we will do everything in our power to ensure an unequivocal victory in the coming elections," LMP-Cebu Chapter President Mayor Christina Frasco said.

The endorsement from the LMP-Cebu mayors came a day after Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP), Lakas-CMD, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), and Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) forged a four-party grand alliance to support the BBM-SARA Uniteam.

Marcos, a former senator, thanked the Cebu mayors for supporting him and Inday Sara.

"It's a tremendous help, of course ang national candidate eh umaasa talaga ‘yan sa mga local government official ( a national candidate really depends on local government officials) from governors to mayors up to the barangay captains kaya ang endorsement like that ay very welcome. I welcome it very much, and I thank all of those mayors in region seven who gave me and Inday Sara their support," Marcos said.

Liloan, Cebu Mayor Christina Frasco, noted that no other presidential aspirant has Marcos's competence and experience.

She added that his proven track record in the executive, legislative and administrative had prepared him for the "most difficult job" in the country.

"We all have common hopes, the hopes that we can provide a better life for fellow Filipinos and our families and pin our hopes on our next president, firm in the belief that he can deliver a bright and progressive future, not only for Cebuanos but to all our fellow Filipinos," Frasco added.
