Gertie Duran Batocabe overwhelmed by show of support as she joins mayoralty race
Gertie Duran Batocabe is officially campaigning for Mayor, and her journey to this position has been a hard and sad one.
Gertie is only running because she replaced her husband Rodel Batocabe, who was gunned down as he was leaving a gift-giving event last December.
But while being a candidate is new to Gertie, she said she was pleasantly surprised by the support she’s getting.
She said on Facebook that she only asked for few volunteers for the campaign, but so many turned out to help her.
These included barangay officials, fraternity members, persons with disabilities, senior citizens, barangay health workers, padyak drivers, riders, police personnel, tricycle drivers, and other supporters, friends, and family members.
Her task ahead may not be easy, but at least she’s getting a lot of support!
“We asked for a few volunteers but so many came. Salamat po sa lahat ng tumulong – sa ating mga Kapitan, Kagawad, cluster heads, group leaders, fraternity members, pwd’s, senior citizens, BHW, king padyak, paraoma, jovenes, riders, PNP daraga, tricycle drivers, mga AGTA, SAA Batch 81/85, supporters, family and friends…..” Gertie posted.
