Wednesday, October 3, 2012
BACOLOR — Pampanga’s Best matriarch Lolita Hizon filed her certificate of candidacy (COC) for vice mayor of this town and disclosed she will not support former governor Eddie Panlilio who is set to stage a comeback in the gubernatorial race.
Her son, incumbent Mayor Jose Maria “Jomar” Hizon who also filed his COC Tuesday, is seeking for a re-election.
According to councilorable Bong San Pedro, Hizon said she would support the candidacy of Governor Lilia Pineda rather than Panlilio, whom she had supported and later became a staunch critic of the former governor.
The mother and son tandem will be running under an independent party.
Mayor Hizon said he will continue his programs and projects for the town. He added that much has already been accomplished under his term and he would not be distracted by the political noise of the coming 2013 midterm elections.
The Hizons will be running against former Mayor Romeo “Buddy” Dungca and incumbent Vice Mayor Ananias “Jun” Canlas, who are aiming for mayor and vice mayor respectively.
Hizon’s slate includes councilor aspirants San Pedro, Emily Batac, Willy Balingit, Ariel Sta. Cruz, Rico Cunanan, Joy Rivera, Ric Yalung and Edwin Escoto.
