Doc Anthony casts moist eye on Cabanatuan City Hall
Cabanatuan City vice mayor Emmanuel Antonio “Doc Anthony” M. Umali is planning to take another shot at city mayor in the 2019 elections.
A Politiko source said Umali reckoned he has a better chance of winning in 2019 with incumbent City Mayor Julius Ceasar V. Vergara on his third an final term.
The source said Umali, who was then Sangguniang Panlalawigan Board Member, lost by a wide margin to then re-electionist Vergara in the race fight for city mayor in 2013.
Umali defeated Dr. Susan E. Garcia, the wife of then outgoing vice mayor Marius Garcia in the May 2016 National and Local Elections.
The Politiko source said Umali was still assessing his possible rivals for mayor before making up his mind.
“Marami ang mga Vergara, kung sino ang tukuyin ni mayor Jay para mayor…maaring yung asawa (Nueva Ecija 3rd District Rep. Rossana Vergara)…siya ang posibleng babanggain ni Doc Anthony,”the source said.
Umali is presently the Executive Vice President of the Vice Mayors League of the Philippines.
