Former Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista is now the commanding general of the 1502 Ready Reserve Infant Battalion for the city.
He was appointed with the rank of a brigadier general of the Philippine Army.
In a Facebook post, Bautista, popularly known as Bistek, was seen wearing a full Army uniform when he visited Barangay Tandang Sora.
“Our team has been doing round the clock inspection of borders to ensure the safety of the city and also distributing goods to our constituents who are in need. We are helping them the best we can and we appreciate your support in every way. Please continue to Stay Home for the safety not just of our city but most especially, our families. God Bless Us All,” his FB message read.
“The group together with other civilian volunteers, is tirelessly working nonstop to make sure all security details are taken care of and that our limited resources and manpower are maximized in order to protect thousands of others under quarantine in our city. My utmost respect to our Security Frontliners, GOOD JOB everyone!” he said.
Bautista recently made a comeback in showbusiness after his nine years as Quezon City mayor.
