Five others are dubbed as millennials: Mabalacat City Councilor Win-Win Garbo, Guagua Vice Mayor Sajid Eusoof, Bacolor Councilor Lucky Labung and congressional chief of staff Mica Gonzales. 

Governor Pineda accompanied them in their filing of COCs, expressing hopes the provincial government would have “a united SP with a clear agenda for economic rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Cayabyab and other candidates for Board Member are all running under the Kambilan Party.
