Mayor Sabili challenges Vilma Santos-Recto for Batangas 6th District Representative
Lipa City Mayor Meynard Sabili will challenge 6th District Representative Vilma Santos-Recto for the House seat.
The Batangas politiko filed his certificate for candidacy on October 15.
Sabili said he wants to see change in Congress.
“Gusto ko magkaroon ng pagbabago sa Kongreso, ‘yung magkaroon ng tunay na representative ang taong-bayan. Hindi ko nararamdaman ‘yon kaya tumakbo ako,” he said.
Sabili’s wife, Bernadette, lost to Recto in 2016.
“Sa isang gustong maglingkod, dapat ‘wag matakot. Bigyan ng lakas ng loob ang sarili basta confident siya na kaya niyang maglingkod,” he said.
