Councilor-elect Jimmy Villaflores on Thursday thanked the people of District 2 for the trust and confidence given him in Monday’s elections.

The City Board of Canvassers officially proclaimed Villaflores as one of the eight winning councilors landing on No. 5 slot after the tabulation.

The newcomer council said the legislative proceedings are not new to him having been a barangay kagawad and at present the barangay chairman of Sta. Catalina.

Villaflores vowed to support the programs of Mayor Beng Climaco dubbed (SHE) which stands for Security, Health and Education.

The veteran broadcast journalist said it was the party’s strength led by Climacco that carried him and the rest of his partymates to victory .

“Maga 50 percent ya gana yo porcausa del strength del partido que ta encabesa si mayor Beng. The other was the encouragement of Gen. Salazar, the husband of the mayor. Si hinde porcausa dila y maga supporters hinde gayot yo puede realisa mi suenyo,” He said.

Villaflores’ courageous action during the 2013 Zamboanga siege also gave him the boost in the electoral contest.

Asked what committee he prefers, He said, he is eyeing the ommittee on Infrastructure, Education or even Sanitation and Health.

But this will depend on the decision of the majority, Villaflores emphasized.

The neophyte councilor was a regular contributing writer of Daily Zamboanga Times. — KS
