Deloso unfazed by Magsaysay and Ebdane team up
IBA, Zambales—Governor Amor Deloso has welcomed the alliance between two powerful politicians who are contesting his reelection bid in the gubernatorial seat.
"The team-up of former public works and hghways secretary Hermogenes Ebdane and former Zambales governor Vicente Magsaysay has made my reelection bid a bit harder than before," Deloso said.
But Deloso said he is confident that the people of Zambales would reelect him as governor for another term, adding that his years of service will hinder Ebdane's plans to become governor.
Unfazed by the team-up of Magsaysay and Ebdane, Deloso reiterated that the people would still look for a leader who is approachable and light-hearted.
He also said that even if eight of the mayors of Zambales have expressed their support for Ebdane, he has shown that he can win the position despite him only having one mayor in the whole of Zambales supporting him.
In the past election, Deloso won over Magsaysay who has the support of almost all the mayors in Zambales except one. "That was a classic fight. I won over him without any support from most of the mayors in Zambales," he said.
Deloso said that such political leaders can be bought but not family friends, reiterating that his grassroots method is to ensure that every family head here in Zambales is his friend.
He added that the value of money is not how much you can spend for everything you want, but what you have when you need it most. By JONAS REYES - Manila Bulletin
