Stage father! Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali is proud of son’s mayoralty bid
Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali is no newbie in Philippine politics, and it looks like his son wants to stay on in the same field as well.
In a Facebook post, Umali went all out in supporting the decision of his son, Board Member Jean Paulo Umali, to run for mayor of Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro.
Umali said that as a father, he was very proud of Pau because he sees his son’s desire to serve the country and improve the lives of his fellow Filipinos.
The whole family is behind Pau, he said.
For the Umalis, politics is a family affair!
“Noong nakaraang Oktubre 16 (Martes), pormal nang naghain ng kanyang kandidatura si Board Member Jean Paulo “Pau” Umali para sa pagtakbo bilang Mayor ng Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro.
Bilang isang ama ay proud na proud ako sa aking anak na si Bokal Pau. Nakikita ko sa kanya ang pagnanais na maglingkod sa bayan para sa ikabubuti ng ating mga kababayan.
Ang ating pamilya ay buong pusong nakasuporta sa’yo Bokal Pau Umali!,” the lawmaker posted.
