The mayors, led by Lopez Mayor Isaias "Sonny" Ubana, president of the Quezon chapter of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP), expressed their support on Friday at the Queen Margarette Court in this city before Norberto Gonzalez, presidential adviser on special concerns.
, who is in his
third and last term as mayor, said the group did not pass a formal resolution expressing support for the President, in deference to the absent members.
"Ipinaabot lang namin kay Secretary Gonzalez ang aming individual support kay Pangulong Arroyo at di na kami nagpasa ng resolution, because it would bind other members who were not at the gathering," Ubana
told Today in an interview.
said that the Quezon chapter of the LMP might come up with a formal resolution on its regular monthly meeting in January in support of Mrs. Arroyo and of Gov.
said Gonzalez was accompanied by coconut farmer-leader Efren Villaseñor, who is gunning for the congressional post in the Fourth District.
