Thousands of Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan candidates started the first day of the campaign early in the different areas of the city.

Before noontime arrived, thousands of campaign materials were seen posted in poster areas, private establishments and residences, proving that campaign period has indeed started.

Based on monitoring by RMN Zamboanga yesterday, some of the candidates were seen in their respective red colored outfits.

ABC President and Barangay Putik re-electionist chairman Jerry Perez said that his team has chosen red as their official color since they started as public servants.

Perez considers the color red as very attractive and a lucky charm for his team, which won during the previous barangay elections.

Pasobolong Punong Barangay Aspirant Efren Reyes, who has served the barangay for 22 years, said that their team has chosen the color red because it is attractive to voters.

Coincidentally however,  the color red is also associated with the political party of First District Congressman Celso Lobregat who uses the color regardless of party affiliation.

Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan candidates have until May 12 to campaign.  (Bhong Simbajon)
