In his recent #JJSpeaks last August 8, 2021, the Vice Mayor of Guiguinto Bulacan, Eliseo “JJ” Santos expresses his interest to run as mayor. The incumbent mayor Ambrosio “Boy” Cruz may seem to favor another candidate but both mayor and vice mayor are coming from the the same political party, National United Party. The party that has the big names like Vico Sotto of Pasig City, Isko Moreno of Manila City and more.
VM Jj has an impressive political stint where he started as an early representative of the youth, Sangguniang Kabataan, then municipal councilor since 2007 and now is serving his first term as Vice Mayor.
I commend his social media team, he has an amazing content with good engagements thus shows good connections with the youth sector. Please watch the entire video below
But is it enough? Can online translate actual votes?
This is still debatable but when more people are spending their time online due to the lockdown, then we can observe that there are “real” people who can deal with trolls nd fake news.

This also serves as an open invitation to other aspiring leaders, at the same time as an encouragement for other regional projects to educate our voters. Yes we are interested of national elections and getting better leaders from president, to vice president, to senators but this pandemic teaches us a lesson to #Thinksmarter of our choices like councilors, barangay officials, mayors, governors, party-lists and more.
