Pasig City Mayor-elect Vico Sotto, the son of Vic Sotto and Connie Reyes, is currently earning praises from netizens after setting an example on the use of tarpaulins in public spaces.
Vico, who was greeted by the people of Pasig on his birthday with a huge tarpaulin as he turned 30, thanked them for their efforts.
But the young politician, who is known for his stance against traditional politics, asked to have the tarpaulin removed since his birthday has already gone by.
“Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng bumati sa aking ika-30 na kaarawan! Pero tapos na ang birthday ko. Tanggalin niyo na ‘yung mga tarp na 'to please! Nagugulat ako sa mukha ko eh,” he wrote.
He then went on: “Ang totoo, nagpaalam sa kin yung nagkabit nito. Pumayag na lang ako dahil alam kong excited pa ang lahat sa panalo natin. Pero pagkatapos nito, iwasan na natin ang mga tarp/poster na may mukha ko ha!! Lalo na sa mga public spaces.”
Having turned 30 last June 17, Vico ended Bobby Eusebio's 27-year reign as Mayor of Pasig.
