Since last week, Saturdays and Sundays are noisy in our place. Those jingles by the local candidates are so irritating. They are more of noise than anything else. Yesterday, a group of supporters of these candidates paraded inside the subdivision. This morning, it was another batch and another party. They even stopped at the corner, a few meters from our house.

A while ago, Senator JV Ejercito passed by with lots of cars behind. He waved, I didn’t wave back. I am not voting for the guy. Based on what I see on social media, the candidates of Otso Diretso (which I am voting for in the Senate) are doing the rounds, personally meeting those in wet markets and other places where they are scheduled  to visit. Sen. JV belongs to another party which is spearheaded by Duterte’s daughter who is the present mayor in Davao City. The campaign jingle was so loud enough to wake a sleeping giant…haha! Even Oreo who was inside the house kept barking.

It’s just more than a month before  mid-term election. We’ll see how it goes. The administration candidates think they are all sure winners. Many Filipinos are now awake and know what is happening in our country. If it would be a clean and honest one, I am pretty sure they won’t win.

It’s our incumbent mayor’s third term this coming election. His former  vice-mayor belongs to the other party now and is also a candidate for the mayoralty. Almost every one here in our neighbourhood are re-electing Mayor Atty. Kit Nieto. He is the best and made Cainta number one town in the whole Philippines the last three years. A very approachable guy. In more than two decades that we’ve stayed in this place,  it’s the only time that I met a local official face to face. We even had a photo together at his office in one of my birthdays years ago. Our neighbors and I came to visit him to ask him for advice regarding our subdivision’s problems.
