San Juan City Mayor Guia Gomez almost shed tears of joy after 18 out of 21 barangay captains and 138 barangay kagawads, treasurer, secretary and ex-officio expressed solid support for her reelection bid in an assembly in San Juan to celebrate International Women’s Month.
In a show of gratitude, League of Barangays President Allen Silvano led the presentation of a Manifesto of Support signed by 156 barangay leaders to Mayor Gomez for her heartfelt service to San Juan City in the past six years.
The mayor humbly accepted the endorsement of barangay officials together with other women candidates in San Juan—Jana Ejercito for congresswoman, Janella Estrada for vice mayor, Raissa Laurel, and Edith Velasco for councilors.
“Mayor Guia exemplifies the real motherly care when she provided us with a decent and affordable in-city public housing in St. Josephville,” said barangay captain Ruel Sumaguinsing of Corazon de Jesus.
Barangay Addition Hills Kagawad Beeboy Bargas also said, “We’ve witnessed the extraordinary progress in San Juan City, that’s why there is no reason to shift to another leadership. Necessary infrastructures are already in place such as better roads and streetlights. Even the business community trusts Mayor Guia as evident with the investment flow in San Juan City.”
In response to their show of support, Gomez encouraged the barangay leaders to join her in pursuing the programs that would further bring progress for San Juan City such as additional public housing and medical center.
