Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto stressed that she will seek re-election along with vice-governor Jose Antonio “Mark” Leviste II in the coming 2010 local elections, stopping the rumors that she would be the administration party’s vice-presidential candidate.
Santos-Recto, a Lakas-Kampi-Christian Muslim Democrats party member, said it was Leviste’s leadership that made it possible for her to gain the support of the provincial board, which paved the way for more projects in the province. “Kapag iisa ang vision mo with your vice-governor, mas madali ang pag-dedeliver ng services sa iyong mga constituents,” the governor added.
The Batangas governor, who is also a multi-awarded actress, said she will not run as vice-president after reportedly being wooed to be the running mate of presidential candidates Sen. Manny Villar and Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro Jr.
“My focus is in Batangas. My mind has been set to continue serving my kababayans. I know how to handle the problems in Batangas and definitely I know how to solve it,” Santos-Recto said.
“Ayaw ko namang maging vice president dahil lang sa pangalan ko, dahil sa sikat ako. Gusto ko naman pag sasabak ako sa isang giyera nakahanda ako at maraming nalalaman,” she concluded.
