FORMER Candaba mayor Danilo Baylon said he is "waiting for a sign" if he will once again throw his hat in the political arena in May 2022.

In an exclusive interview with SunStar Pampanga Wednesday, July 28, 2021, Baylon said he will announce his plans when "he receives a sign from God."

"Sa ngayon, wala pa akong plano kung tatakbo nga ako sa darating na election dahil hinihintay ko pa ang 'sign' galing sa ating Panginoon kung ano ang balak Niya para sa atin," Baylon said.

He said if he will return to public service, his constituents can be assured of clean, good and transparent governance.

"Napatunayan naman natin yan noon tayo ang nakaupo bilang mayor ng Candaba, naibigay natin ang mga programa at proyekto sa mga tao, walang corruption at pinagbawal natin ang mga masasamang bisyo," Baylon said.

The former mayor said as of now, he and his wife Apo Aniway are busy in their food donation drives in different towns in Pampanga and other parts of the country.

Apo Aniway said what they are doing is simply helping those in need and is not a political tactic. She said a person need not be in power or position to help, but the desire to render noble services as instructed by God.

"Kaming mag asawa ay instrumento lamang ng Ama natin para maipaabot ang tulong na ito sa aming kapwa tao," she added.

The Baylon couple, who owns Dan Way Processing Corporation, has been helping Filipinos for 20 years, especially the poor by giving them food and spritual guidance in this time of pandemic.

On Wednesday, the Baylon couple together with Fourth District Board Member Nelson Calara donated chickens, rice and eggs to 1,200 senior citizens, persons with disabilities (PWDs) and single parents in Barangays San Juan and Sta. Monica in San Simon town.

Last week, 650 senior citizens and PWDs from San Vicente, Sto. Tomas was also given food donation from Dan Way Processing Corporation.

Meanwhile, Calara said he always requests the help of Baylon to assist indigent families, especially in the Fourth District where many people have been affected by the pandemic.

Calara added it is the mission of the Baylon couple to help those in need since they have been truly gifted with spiritual and material blessings in life. (Chris Navarro)
