Gamboa woos Bacolod voters

“I have never left or disappoint you since 2007,” Bacolod’s lone opposition Councilor and vice mayoralty candidate Wilson Gamboa, Jr., said during the April 23 rally of the Alliance of Independents in Bacolod City, where he told supporters that he braved the pouring rain and scorching heat and despite lagging behind surveys, in order that his platforms and programs are delivered to all the people from all walks of life.

During an intimate rally with his loyal supporters at the City Hall Fountain of Justice grounds who yelled “we are not paid,” Gamboa reiterated that his candidacy and the Alliance of Independents aim to push for platforms and programs and not to engage in malicious and unjustified character assassinations of their political rivals, a press release from the camp of Gamboa said.

He almost did not make it in the last 2019 election but Bacolod City voters did not allow a 15-0 win for the majority party either, a situation where the late Atty. Lyndon Caña described as providential and a structural arrangement where the ruling party cannot arbitrarily do and abuse itself with the presence of a lone apposition, he said.

Gamboa recalled that his opposition-fiscalizing stance is a manifestation of his independent-mindedness, free from the dictates of any moneyed patron that proved extremely difficult for the past 12 years since 2007, but blissfully, he was not alone.In vernacular, he said, “Nag-unong upod sa inyo; nagsulay sa ulan, init kag naga-haklo yab-ok upod sa inyo; nag-tindog, nag-bato upod sa inyo. (All together, we braved the rain, heat, dust, stood our ground and fought).

Labeled “Quixotic Crazy” amidst money and patronage politics as the norm, Gamboa once again implored the great and mighty voters of Bacolod City, “Updi nyo ako sa liwat sa sini nga kausa, sa sini nga away, (walk and fight with me again in this honorable cause), not losing faith in the Bacolod electorate to once again put a Gamboa and the Alliance of Independents into the august halls of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) and restore its long lost prestige and distinction as a check and balance to the corruption and abuses of the all-powerful local executive branch.*
