ANGELES CITY, PAMPANGA – Staff of Angeles City Mayor-elect Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. on May 15, 2019 went around the city to clean up leftover campaign materials, posters, and other election propaganda posted in various locations.
Two teams consisting of seven members each were deployed to clean up election propaganda along major roads – one team started out from Arayat Boulevard in Barangay Pampanga while another team started out along Friendship Highway.
This comes after Lazatin’s official proclamation last night, May 14, at the New Legislative Building, City Hall, alongside his running mate and Vice Mayor-elect, Ma. Vicenta “Vicky” Vega-Cabigting.
Following his proclamation, Lazatin expressed heartfelt gratitude towards his supporters and called for unity, urging Angeleños to clear partisan political lines and work together for the development of the city.
“Sa lahat ng sumuporta sa akin at sa Team Lazatin, sa lahat ng naniwala, sa lahat ng nagtiwala, maraming maraming salamat po sa inyo,” said Lazatin, “Ing tagumpe ayni, para ya kekatamungan.”
Lazatin came first in the race for Angeles City Mayor with a total of 59,192 votes.
For his platform, Lazatin had presented his Six-Point Agenda focusing on improving public services, especially public health and education, improving the city’s solid-waste management and infrastructure, promoting youth and sports development, and making Angeles a ‘drug-cleared’ city.
Also joining Lazatin and Vega-Cabigting in the proclamation are two councilors-elect from Team Lazatin, Atty. Arvin “Pogs” Suller and Marino “Nik-Nok” Bañola.
