The Pampanga canvassing board has proclaimed Rep. Aurelio Gonzales Jr. and his two children as winners in the May 9 elections in the province.

Gonzales, who had no opponent, got 280,375 votes. It will be his third and last term as representative of Pampanga’s third district in the incoming 19th Congress. He served two terms in previous Congresses, from 2007 to 2013.

He thanked his constituents “for their vote of confidence and trust in us and for giving us an overwhelming mandate.”

His daughter Mica was elected No. 1 provincial board member representing the third district, with 227,603 votes; while his son Brenz, a civil engineer like him, was voted No. 1 councilor in the capital city of San Fernando with 82,006 votes.

Gonzales has vowed to pursue his Charter change advocacy in the incoming 19th Congress.

He is proposing a five-year term for the President and Vice President with one reelection for a total tenure of 10 years, instead of the present six years without reelection.

Presumptive President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and his running mate, incoming Vice President Sara Duterte, won big in Pampanga.

The province gave Marcos Jr. and Mayor Sara 832,937 and 710,857 votes, respectively. Their closest opponents, Vice President Leni Robredo and Senate President Vicente Sotto lll, had 357,545 and 321,458 votes respectively.
