Alex Gonzaga had Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto as her guest in her latest YouTube vlog. 

In the video, Alex met Vico at the Pasig City hall where she was given a tour by the mayor around the different departments in the building. 

During their conversation, Alex asked Vico why he decided to run for mayor.


"Ito 'yung nakita kong opportunity na magpakilala ng pagbabago sa lungsod natin," he told Alex.

He also shared, "Ever since bata ako, gusto ko na magtrabaho sa gobyerno."

 

Vico also talked about his parents and relayed that they are very supportive of him when it comes to public service.

"Very supportive naman  sila sa akin. Medyo natakot sila para sa akin pero kahit ganon 'yung feeling nila, talagang very supportive sila. Swerte ako na 'yung parents ko super down to earth din," he said.

Vico also discussed why he doesn't put his name or promote himself on Pasig City projects.

 

"'Pag project ng LGU (local government unit), bawal maglagay 'yung malaking pangalan ko kasi pera ng taong bayan 'yun eh. Bakit ako maglalagay ng pangalan ko?" he said.

He also explained his viral tweet last November wherein he said: "Laging tandaan na wala kayong utang na loob kahit kanino (lalo na sa politiko) dahil pera ito ng taumbayan. Na-a-appreciate ko naman kapag may nagpapasalamat sa'kin pero naiilang ako dahil di ko pera to. Mag-aral lang kayo nang mabuti, sulit na ang investment ng Pasig sa inyo."

He explained the tweet to Alex saying, "Ang ibig ko lang sabihin wala tayong utang na loob sa mga politiko. Pwede tayong magpasalamat kasi maganda 'yung proyekto, maganda 'yung programa, pero wala tayong utang na loob. Iba 'yun eh," he said.
