Ynares proclaimed Antipolo City Mayor

Antipolo City - Mayor-elect Casimiro "Jun" Ynares III vows to start working and fulfill his vision for this Pilgrimage Capital City of the country.

Ynares, who garnered a total of 128,108 votes against his closest rival, incumbent Mayor Danilo Leyble who got 121,032 votes, following more than a day of canvassing by the City Board of Canvassers at the Ynares Center here, told the Manila Bulletin that he will immediately create a transition team, which will define their programs for the city government as soon as he assumes office on July 1.

Ynares, governor of Rizal province, said he is appealing to his political opponent and his supporters to set aside their political differences and work as a team in order to better serve the public.

"Sana po simulan na natin ang matagal na po nating inaasam, ang pangarap para sa lungsod. Kung talaga pong mahal natin ang Antipolo, tayo po ay maaaring magsama sa ngalan ng serbisyo-publiko (Let us start doing what we have been dreaming of. If we really love Antipolo, we can work together in the interest of public service)," Ynares said.

The mayor-elect added that his focus will be on the betterment of health of his close to 700,000 constituents giving emphasis on addressing the problems on malnutrition among kids, establishment of hospitals, being a physician, and to see to it that criminality will be eradicated with his peace and order programs for the city.

Ynares was officially proclaimed by the City Board of Canvassers (CBOC) around 11 p.m. Tuesday with his wife, Andrea, his two daughters Cassandra Danielle and Rebecca Victoria, along with his parents, Rizal Governor-elect Rebecca, and former Governor Casimiro Ynares, Jr.

The proclamation of Ynares and the winning local candidates happened a few hours before the CBOC led by its Chairman Rene Gaton ordered the Ynares Center security personnel to clear the sports center of the thousands of supporters of Ynares as well as all the members of the media who made their way into the center during the canvassing.

Among those proclaimed winners were the Antipolo 2nd District Representative Romeo Acop who got 74,109 votes, and his counterpart in the 1st District, Roberto Puno.
