INCUMBENT Cebu Vice Governor Hilario Davide III will join forces with former Department of Tourism secretary Ace Durano as the latter gears up in his bid for the gubernatorial post in next year’s national elections.
“Taud-taud nakong nakaila ni Ace. Maayo kaayong tawo si Ace. Matarong, sinsero, mapaubsanon, may katakos, kalma ug angayan sad gyud nga mahimong lider natong mga Sugbuanon. His track record as representative of the Fifth District and tourism secretary speaks for itself,” said Davide.
Earlier, the vice-governor had hinted that this would be his last term.
But he said he decided to seek another term because, according to him, Durano would be an ideal running mate with their same brand of leadership and priority programs.
Davide, who served as governor for two terms from 2013 to 2019, made health the number one priority in his development agenda.
During his two terms as governor, Davide allocated a big chunk of the Capitol’s budget for health programs and projects, including the improvement of provincial and district hospitals, as well as the hiring of more health workers. (PR)
