MABALACAT CITY – The entire Team MCG is gearing for a grand rally, dubbed “Bayung Mabalacat” on May 7, 2022 at the Mabiga Open Grounds, capping the team’s 45-day campaign.
Team MCG, led by frontrunners incumbent city Mayor Crisostomo Garbo and Vice Mayor Gerald Aquino, will be in full force for the said event that revolves around “crusaders and superheroes” theme to echo a unified stand on being vanguards of people-centered and pro-active local governance.
Key messages on campaign platforms will be delivered to flesh out the Bayung Mabalacat vision.
“Sa Mayo 7 ay liliparin natin ang himpapawid! Tatanawin natin ang bagong mukha at ibayong simula para sa higit at progresibong Bayung Mabalacat. Lahat po ay inaanyayahan nating dumalo upang tayo’y dinggin – anumang kulay, sinumang kandidato ang sinusuportahan,” said Mayor Garbo.
“At sa Mayo 9, ang boses ng taumbayan ang maririnig at mananaig. Dahil ang nakakabinging panawagan para sa Bayung Mabalacat ay binuo mula sa maliliit na tinig, pangarap at pagnanasa ng bawat ordinaryong Mabalaqueño,” the city mayor said.
Meanwhile, Pampanga Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda and Vice Governor Lilia Pineda, who are also both undisputed in their respective run for public office, are expected to grace the Bayung Mabalacat stage to reaffirm endorsement to the whole Team MCG slate.
Also, Outgoing Councilor Win-Win Garbo and Board Member Benny Jocson, who are both leading the Provincial Board Member race in the first district, will also be up on stage to join the rally.
For his part, Mayor Garbo acknowledges that being an election frontrunner places him at the receiving end of political attacks. Despite a number of propaganda and disinformation being peddled against him, he is still optimistic that Mabalacat City will have a peaceful and credible May 2022 polls.
He also furthered that the “real challenge” in this election season is not about beating his competitors in surveys or in staging huge rallies, but it is more about surpassing the achievements of his first term as local chief executive.
“Tuwing eleksyon ay nakikita natin ang batuhan ng putik at black propaganda na siyang larawan ng luma at bulok na pamumulitika,” said Garbo.
“Ipinagmamalaki ko po na binuno po natin ang ating oras sa mas mahahalagang mga bagay. Tayo ay nanatiling nakatutok sa pagbibigay serbisyo at ito ay ramdam at pinahalagahan ng ating mga kababayan. Ito ang kaibahan natin sa iba. Ito ang serbisyo-publikong nais nating isulong. Ito ang klase ng pulitika na nais nating itaguyod. Ito ang Bayung Mabalacat,” the city mayor ended.
