Sara thanks Oriental Mindoro leaders for backing her VP bid
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte thanked Oriental Mindoro leaders led by Governor Humerlito “Bonz” Dolor and Reps Paulino Leachon and Alfonso Umali Jr. for supporting her vice presidential candidacy.
“Maraming salamat po unang-una sa oras at oportunidad na ibinigay ninyo sa akin na makasama kayo, makilala kayo, at makapagbigay ng maikling mensahe para sa inyong lahat,” Sara said during her separate visit to the province’s key leaders.
Duterte paid a visit to Dolor at the capitol gym to meet with a crowd of drivers, operators and other members of the transport sector.
Dolor, a member of the PDP-Laban party, thanked President Rodrigo Duterte for the development projects that government poured into the province.
He also thanked Sara for the financial assistance extended by Davao City during Typhoons Vista in 2017, Usman in 2018, and Tisoy and Ursula in 2019.
In a separate event, Sara also met with Leachon and Umali, who were with 13 mayors of the province, all 10 board members and ex-officio members, councilors, and some Barangay leaders.
“From end-to-end, from the north which is Puerto Galera, to the South which is Bulalacao, I am proud to say that maganda ang mga kalsada dito,” Leachon said.
Last year, Leachon led the creation of the Mindoro Bago Sarili (MBS) local party along with his political allies. He said the entire MBS backs Sara’s vice presidential bid
In her visit to the province, Sara was accompanied by Senator Ronald dela Rosa, House Speaker Lord Allan Velasco, and senatorial aspirant Sal Panelo.
