"Titignan muna natin, meron pa naman tayong at least a year. Marami pa tayong inaayos ngayon. Hindi ko muna iniisip ang pulitika, ang iniisip ko 'yung 2025 na pondo na pwede nating ibaba para may continuity ang mga programa natin," Congressman Lazatin said.

He added that he is also considering the decision of Mayor Lazatin who is only serving his second term and is eligible for reelection.

"Patapos na ako sa pagiging representate ng distrito. Si mayor naman, baka gusto niyang tapusin ang pagiging mayor niya. Ako naman, kung saan ako gusto at kailangan ng tao, nandun ako. Hindi ko iniisip ang posisyon, basta kaya kong makatulong ay tutulong ako," Cong. Lazatin said.
