CITY OF MALOLOS – Demonstrating unity and strong support, city and municipal mayors braved inclement weather as they escorted Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado and his running mate Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando when the so called “Dynamic Duo” of Bulacan filed their Certificate of Candidacy (CoC) at the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) here Wednesday morning.

Clad in yellow shirts, the local executives led by Paombong Mayor Donato Marcos, president of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines, trooped to the provincial COMELEC office after attending a holy mass with Alvarado and Fernando at the chapel of the Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center.

Mayor Marcos and Malolos City Mayor Christian Natividad said that this is the first time that the provincial chief executive and his running mate are running with the full support of the majority of the mayors of the province.

Alvarado and Fernando are both running under the Liberal Party coalition.

“This is the start of something big in the province when all the political leaders became united and share one vision and common goals ,” Marcos said.

Natividad described this unprecedented political development as “One Bulacan”.

“Dito sa Bulacan ay nagkakaisa kami,” Natividad added.

Gov. Alvarado thanked the local executives and his supporters as he vowed to continue what he started with more fervor and strong resolve in his bid for a second term as chief executive of Bulacan.

He said that the rare political development in Bulacan is a “masterstroke” initiative of the top brass of the Liberal Party adding that this kind of political maturity should be emulated in other parts of the country.

“Lahat kami ay nagnanais na pare-parehong maglingkod at ngayon nga ay nakahanda kami na magtrabaho nang magkakampi o isang team,” Alvarado, who was also joined by his wife re-electionist 1st District Rep. Ma Victoria R. Sy-Alvarado who also filed her CoC, said.

Fernando is virtually unopposed after the Municipal Trial Court of Pandi junked the petition of his rumored rival and fellow actor Philip Salvador for his inclusion in the list of voters in the town of Pandi after the local Comelec officials there earlier “resolved to disapprove the application of Philip Salvador, as transferee (voter) of Pandi, Bulacan.”

Aside from Alvarado and Fernando, re-electionists board members Michael Fermin, Felix Ople, Therese Cheryll Ople (1st District), Enrique dela Cruz and Monette Posadas (2nd District) also filed their CoCs. ###
