Majayjay Mayor Jojo Clado has accepted his defeat in the mayoralty race and congratulated his rival Romy Amorado for being elected as the new local chief executive.

He also feels honored to have been given the chance to serve for two terms, he said.
“Bayan ng Majayjay isang karangalan para sa akin na pagsilbihan kayo sa loob ng 6 na taon. Lumaban po tayo ng patas pero hindi po ito naging sapat,” he said.
He said he respects the decision of the people of Majayjay, and he is leaving with head held high because he did his best for them.
“Maluwag po sa aking kalooban at buong puso ko pong tinatanggap ang naging desisyon ng taongbayan. Irerespeto po natin ang resulta ng halalan. Kung ito po ang kaloob, let His will be done. Taas noo po akong bababa sa panunugkulan dahil alam ko po pinagsilbihan ko kayo ng tapat at karapat-dapat,” he said.
Clado also wished Amorado well.
“Dalangin ko po sa bagong administrasyon na patuloy nyo pa pong mapalipad ang Bayan ng Majayjay. Congratulations po sa lahat ng nanalo. Congratulations Mayor Romy Amorado!” he said.
He also said he was still willing to help the new administration and the people of the town.
“Panawagan ko po lamang sa lahat ng aking mga kababayan ang pagkakaisa na kinakailangan ng ating bayan. Tapos na po ang election,” he added.
