Vice mayor: Let Leonardias decide Andy’s replacement-A A +A
Wednesday, January 9, 2013
NATIONALIST People's Coalition-Grupo Progreso mayoralty candidate Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson said he will leave to the Leonardia family to decide whether to field another Leonardia in the political race.
A party’s ticket for the Bacolod City Council is now incomplete with the death of its member, Andy Leonardia, brother of Mayor Evelio Leonardia.
Andy died of accidental firing last January 5. His cremated remains were buried Tuesday morning at Silay Catholic Cemetery.
Sayson said the party will just wait for the Leonardia family’s decision, adding they consider the death of Andy as a big loss to the local party.
The vice mayor said Andy is a probable winner, and they were saddened by his passing.
But Mayor Leonardia said they have not yet decided on who will replace his brother. He said they have to meet to plan and discuss their next move. (CNC)
