2 times lucky? Bulacan ‘coin toss’ mayor to run for 2nd term
The incumbent mayor of this town, who won through a coin toss in the May 2016 elections, is seeking her second term as she filed her certificate on candidacy (COC) Wednesday afternoon.
Incumbent Mayor Joni Villanueva-Tugna will team-up with her vice mayoralty candidate Councilor Noriel German under the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban).
Tugna and German were both welcomed and accompanied by their supporters to the Commission on Elections office here at 4:20 p.m.
They will face the tandem of Jim Valerio and Jonjon Santiago carrying the Nationalist Union Party (NUP).
The lady mayor assured her constituents and promised that by the end of next year, there will be no more informal settlers in this town.
Tugna won her first term through a best-of-five “heads” or “tails” tossing of coin after she and her opponent, Jim Valerio, received exactly 16,694 votes in the 2016 local elections. She won by a 3-0 score. (PNA)
