Comment on Will Sara Duterte back Joe III vs Jerry? by atty. perla garganera-gauzon

i often wonder why, in politics, the so-called incumbents seem to be the only candidates given wide media exposure. case in point, mayor joe espinosa III and cong. jerry trenas. the way it stands, as incumbents, both names frequently appear in press releases, radio and tv. to even the playing field, possible candidates for the position of mayor and/or congressman should also share equal exposure. after all, are espinosa and trenas the only candidates vying for these 2 positions? clearly their political machinery and logistics have gradually increased as both are in these elected positions have been in elected positions for years! are we made to believe that there no longer is any chance for any candidate to even throw his or her hat in the political ring without money nor a formidable political machinery? what about democracy exercised through serious and mature voting for candidates with integrity, honesty and a passion for public service? meaning, let the local media, at this stage, not only dwell on espinosa and trenas but also on other candidates who may very well be just as equally qualified......»»
