Incumbent Mayor of Mercedes, Camarines Norte, Mayor Dante “Boboy” Morales strongly denies the issues that Vice President Leni Robredo will fund his candidacy for vote buying this coming election.
This was clarified in a press conference held last April 21, 2022, wherein Mayor Morales also addressed the issues and accusations being thrown at him.
Morales explains that in all Robredo’s visit in Camarines Norte particularly in Mercedes, he has always been very supportive to Robredo since that have been very good friends for a long time now. According to him, he uses his own money to support Robredo in her visits in their municipality.
Morales believes that if Robredo wins as the President of the country, the whole Bicol Region will benefit a lot when it comes to improvement and development. In addition, if Morales wins too, he said that it will be easy for him to ask favor to Robredo’s office for the benefit of residents of Mercedes.
