IN ILOILO City, it is as sure, too, as the sun rises in the east that Mayor Jerry’s another three years in office would be more productive and geared towards the city’s recovery from the adverse economic effects of the coronaviru­s pandemic.

But it would be a mistake to just attribute his foregone reelection for having a weak opponent. Mayor Jerry enjoys the support of his constituen­ts because he has shown sterling leadership.

There is no doubt in everyone’s mind that Mayor Jerry is the leader that Iloilo City needs – mapisan, decisive, masaligan, accessible, and developmen­t-oriented.

These past two years of pandemic, a mayor of lesser caliber would have plunged Iloilo City to utter disaster. Not Mayor Jerry. The city government under his baton made sure to shield the Ilonggos from the pandemic. No one went hungry, thanks to the innovative community kitchens. There’s ample facilities for COVID-19 patients and suspected cases. May free rides. Food ration. Sufficient COVID-19 vaccines. Etc.

Truly, Mayor Jerry has proven to all and sundry that he is the Ilonggos’ knight in shining armor. Wala duda.
