Oct 16, 2018 @ 7:10

Mayor Johnny Sambo of Sto. Tomas, Pampanga is seeking a reelection during next year’s mid-term polls, the municipal government’s Facebook page said.

Sambo filed his certificate of candidacy last Friday, leading a line-up called, Team Progreso, that includes Matthias “Bong” Pineda as candidate for vice-mayor.

The municipal councilor aspirants in the team are Angeli Tantamco, Teresita Juarez, Yayadin Quiambao, Erwin Tirasol, Nitoy Munoz, Marvin Pineda, Dennis Sitchon, and Edwin Mendoza.

Pampanga 4th District Representative Juan Pablo Bondoc accompanied Sambo and the rest of Team Progreso in filing their certificates of candidacy at the Commission on Elections Sto. Tomas Office.

The team registered their official participation in next year’s elections after attending the eucharistic celebration for the municipality’s 67th founding anniversary at the St. Matthias the Apostle Parish Church in Barangay San Matias.

In the evening of the same day, Sambo and Bondoc paid tribute to the town’s elderlies by gracing the “Senior Citizen Sayawan Night 2018” at the Sto. Tomas Government Center in Barangay San Vicente.

At least 1,700 senior citizens gathered for the occasion, with Sambo and Bondoc hailing them “for their contribution to the development and stability as pillars of the town.”

The politikos also gave out plaques of recognition to some barangay officials and tanods, and to municipal department heads “for their valuable contribution on the success of the 2017 Seal of Good Local Governance” that Sto. Tomas received.

Seven fire-trike were handed over as well to barangay officials as part of the municipal government’s support for disaster mitigation.
