City Mayor Os­car Moreno over the week­end said there were ef­forts of the op­po­si­tion to dis­mem­ber his team, by at­tempt­ing to in­vite par­tic­u­larly Dis­trict 1 Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Rolando ‘Klarex’ Uy to the op­po­si­tion party.

Moreno said he was not sur­prised of these ef­forts, point­ing out that the op­po­si­tion’s main goal is to iso­late him.

“As you know, Dongkoy’s group (for­mer mayor Vi­cente Emano), daghan man na siya ug lu­mil­i­hok (he has many mem­bers), it’s not surprising to ap­proach Vice Mayor Kikang to draw him to them, there were many who at­tempted to get Con­gress­man Klarex,” he said.

“To the ex­tent nga mami­nu­san akong sakop (to lessen my mem­bers), dili baya ko known for style ni Dongkoy nga ala­garan idom­i­nar iyang sakop (I’m not like Dongkoy that dom­i­nates his mem­bers), for me it’s part­ner­ship, not dom­i­nance,” he said.

Vice Mayor Joaquin “Kikang” Uy has ear­lier ad­mit­ted that for­mer vice mayor Ian Ace­nas vis­ited him to try to in­vite him to join the op­po­si­tion party.

Uy, how­ever, said he re­jected this of­fer say­ing that the “courtship was not enough” to sway him as he is al­ready in love with the mayor.

Moreno also gushed about Agu­san barangay

chief­tain An­drew Emano Milleza, who will run for coun­cilor un­der his party.

Moreno said Milleza’s sur­name does not mat­ter him, as he is only af­ter the part­ner­ship and the per­son’s com­mit­ment.

“One might tend to un­der­es­ti­mate him kay kap­i­tan, but ang im­por­tante diha ang pas­sion, imong com­mit­ment, maayo man iyang pag­dala sa Agu­san, he’s a good or­ches­tra­tor, ang iyang ape­lyido does not mat­ter to me, what I am af­ter is our part­ner­ship, a mem­ber of the team,” Moreno added.
