San Fernando City Mayor Edwin Santiago is set to “step away from politics” and public office after his last term ends next year, according to a Sun Star Pampanga report.

The report quoted the mayor as saying he will be taking a break from politics after completing his nine-year term at City Hall.

“Pagkatapos ng term ko, pwede naman humabol sa ibang posisyon pero I decided na lumabas muna sa system,” Santiago said.

In 1998, according to the report, Santiago took a break from politics after a full term as councilor. He staged a comeback in 2004 then rose to vice mayor until 2013. He has served as the city’s mayor since 2013.

“Sa atin naman, habang buhay tayo pwede tayong tumulong. Kahit wala ka sa pulitika, katulad ng mga mediamen, nakakatulong pa rin sa tao at sa bayan,” he said.

“Tuluy-tuloy lang ang trabaho para iyong susunod na papalit sa atin maging madali ang transition, pwede niyang ayusin o dagdagan nalang ang mga kasalukuyang programa,” Santiago said.
