Snides to double dealing politicians in P’sinan
By Mortz C. Ortigoza
MALASIQUI - Showing his innate political integrity in supporting one candidate for the mayoralty in a town or city, a gubernatorial aspirant declared this early that he will support the one this town mayor's endorses for the top post.
Former Pangasinan’s Congressman Mark Cojuangco said unlike other provincial politicians who shrewdly support both rivals for the mayoralty in some towns to advance their selfish interest, he unequivocally declared before a meeting with village chiefs and council members here that he would only support Mayor Armando Domantay’s bet.
“Na isa lang po ang sasamahan kong pulitiko dito sa bayan ng Malasiqui siya po ang magiging poste ko. Siya po ang aking gabay dito sa Malasiqui walang iba po kung hinde si Mayor Armando Domantay at ang mga kanyang pipiliing kandidato sa pagka mayor kung sino man iyon at buong grupo na pipili-in niya para sa pagka-konsehal ng bayan”.
Unlike a mayor he knows in another municipality who wants to advance his own agenda than the welfare of his constituents, Domantay, Cojuangco stressed, is the epitome of a dedicated leader who sincerely serves his constituents well.
Cojuangco said if possible he looks for an ally in a town or a city that is not only incumbent elective chief executive but a dedicated public servant who advanced the betterment of his jurisdiction.

“Dalawang katangi-an po ang hinahanap ko. Meron pong ibang bayan diyan na may incumbent mayor na bagamat mas madali kung pulitika pa lang na iyan ang lapitan mo at humingi ka ng tulong doon ayaw mo kasi alam mo na hindi siya makakatulong sa bayan at kung minsan ang gusto lang magpayaman sa sariling bulsa”.
Cojuangco was at the convention hall of the municipal hall here to renew his ties with the village officials of the 73 barangays’ town.
