Manila, Philippines– Veteran TV host and actor Vic Sotto is one proud father on the victory of his son, Vico in the Pasig mayoralty race.
At 29, Vico ended the decades-long rule of the Eusebio family in Pasig. Vico is the son of actress Connie Reyes with Vic.
In an interview, Vic said “Siguro pagdating ng July, ‘pag nakaupo na siya [and during] inauguration, siguro doon ko pa lang ma-re-realize na, ‘Aba, may anak pala akong mayor.’ Nakakatuwa.”
Vico defeated Mayor Bobby Eusebio in a race described as a match between David and Goliath under the campaign theme of “Iba Naman.”
Vico is a one term councilor before he went on to challenge the veteran politician.
Vico has received 209, 370 votes while Bobby had 121, 556 votes.
“Maraming siyang nakitang hindi tama na kung itatama ay maraming matutulungan talaga,” Vic said in an interview.
The actor-TV host also said that Vico had been bullied when he was elected as city councilor but that didn’t stop his son to push for reforms in the city.
