Mother-and-son Pinedas of Pampanga seek to swap posts in next year’s polls
The mother-and-son tandem in the leadership of Pampanga province will likely remain after next year’s polls, albeit in swapped positions.
Governor Lilia Pineda filed her candidacy on Friday for the position of vice governor for the May 2019 elections, while her son, Vice Governor Dennis Pineda, is gunning for the gubernatorial position.
The politikos, who are running under the Kambilan Local Party, filed their candidacies at the provincial capitol in San Ferdnando City.
The Pinedas were brought into the national spotlight after Lilia’s husband, Rodolfo, popularly known as “Bong,” was dragged into the ‘jueteng’ scandal several years back.
The filing of certificates of candidacy for next year’s mid-term polls ends on Oct. 17.(END)
