San Fernando City, Pampanga Mayor Edwin Santiago does not want to talk about politics at the moment.
The mayor stressed that he is more focused now on serving Fernandinos.
“Ang pulitika, hindi muna pinag-uusapan. Basta tuluy-tuloy tayo sa serbisyo, walang maiiwanan na Fernandino,” Santiago was quoted by Sunstar as saying.
Talks have been rife that Santiago will again be challenged by Reynaldo Aquino, the first city mayor of Pampanga for the mayoralty post in 2016.
Santiago, a member of the Liberal Party, beat Aquino by a margin of 13,916 votes in the 2013 elections.
A third-termer vice mayor, Santiago is gunning for his second term next year.
Santiago said he believes on “succession management” where projects started must be finished and that is what he is doing right now.
“Tuluy-tuloy ang advocacies and policies natin para sa pag-unlad ng siyudad San Fernando,” he said.
