“Walang madaling laban” – Guv Pogi
GOVERNOR Amado “Pogi” Espino III filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for reelection for his third and last term of office in the 2022 elections at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) provincial office early Thursday morning, October 7.
With him were his running-mate, incumbent 2nd District Board Member Nestor “Nikiboy” Reyes, and their slate for the provincial board.
Espino is running under the PDP-Laban and a regional party, Abante Pangasinan Ilocano (API).
In an interview, Espino said he will continue the ‘Abig Pangasinan’ (Heal Pangasinan), a flagship program of the provincial government which was launched amid the COVID-19 pandemic that provides basic health and social services to Pangasinenses.
“Pang-walong pag-file ko na ito ng COC. Walang madaling laban, lahat mahirap. Tao na ang magde-decide dahil darating ang panahon para makilala nila kami,” Espino said.
Meanwhile, incumbent 5th District Rep. Ramon ‘Mon-Mon’ Guico III also filed his COC at 11 a.m. on the same day to challenge the reelection bid of Espino.
Guico has teamed up with incumbent Vice Governor Mark Lambino for his reelection. (Jerick Pasiliao)
