3 Capiz mayors distance selves from Legarda, Binay
Posted by akosistella on March 8, 2010
ROXAS CITY, Philippines — At least three town mayors allied with former Agriculture Undersecretary Jocelyn “Jocjoc” Bolante’s Ugyon Kita Capiz (UKC) party vehemently denied supporting the vice presidential bid of either Senator Loren Legarda or Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay.
The UKC officials said many mistakenly believed that the local party had been supporting Legarda, a member of the Nationalist People’s Coalition and an adopted candidate of the Nacionalista Party as she announced recently her support for the candidacies of some UKC-affiliated mayors running for reelection, including Roxas City Mayor Vicente Bermejo.
Legarda later clarified she was not endorsing UKC nor did she declare support for former agriculture undersecretary Jocelyn “Joc-joc” Bolante, the gubernatorial candidate of UKC and who previously figured in the unsettled fertilizer scam case.

WHAT’S actually more nauseating is these mayors’ support of Joke-Joke Bolante as governor of Capiz! Gross! Boy, when money talks, morality and principles squawk.
