Rizal, Occidental Mindoro Mayor Sonny Pablo updated his constituents about his health condition as he believes it is duty to be transparent to them about it.
In a Facebook post, Pablo shared that he had been in the hospital for the past few days.
He is doing well now, but his doctors have advised him to get some rest.
Because of this, he would be on leave for some time, and Vice Mayor Marcelino Dela Cruz would be in charge for the meantime.
The mayor said he needs to get his strength back for himself, his family, and for Rizal.
He thanked all those who asked about his welfare and prayed for him.
Get well soon!
“Bilang inyong punong-bayan, responsibilidad kong ipaalam sa inyo ang aking kasalukuyang sitwasyon, at karapatan ninyong malaman ang estado ng aking kalusugan.
Ako po ay apat na araw nang nasa ospital, sa ngayon ay nasa maayos na po akong sitwasyon at pinayuhan ng mga doktor na kailangan kong magpahinga.
Ako po ay magpapahinga muna at ating pangalawang Punong-bayan, Kagalang-galang Marcelino Dela Cruz ang mangunguna sa pamamalakad sa mga regular na transaksyon ng ating munisipyo.
Kailangan kong magpalakas para sa aking sarili, sa aking pamilya at sa aking bayang pinagsisilbihan.
Salamat sa lahat ng nagpaabot ng kani-kanilang pangangamusta at mga dasal,” Pablo posted.
