Tired of flying, pilot to run for Bataan mayor

Aug 21, 2015 @ 5:12

A helicopter pilot and cousin of Bataan Gov. Albert Garcia will run for mayor of Hermosa town.

Capt. Jopet Inton, who presently serves as staff member of his uncle, Bataan 2nd District Rep. Enrique “Tet” Garcia, Jr., will take the place of incumbent mayor Danny Malana.

Malana, who is only in his second term, is eyeing the first district congressional seat of the province. Along with the Garcia clan, he belongs to the National Unity Party (NUP).

Citing unnamed “insiders”, Headline Gitnang Luzon reported that Inton has already publicly expressed his intention to run for mayor.

“Many aspiring councilors have already signified intentions to join him,” the local newspaper wrote.

Inton, it said, has been very visible in this town, attending community activities and dialogues with local residents.

A businessman, Inton flies the provincial capitol’s chopper, ferrying local officials and VIPs.

He is the grandson of Arturo Inton, former vice mayor of Hermosa who served from 1948-1951 and 1952-1955.
