The past few days, I was shocked when I heard this from a co-employee that Manny Pacquiao (preferring the Boxing Champ) will run for Vice-Mayor in Cebu City. I just said, "What??? After running as a Congressman in General Santos and Sultan Kudarat, he will invade Cebu for the vice-mayor position?" I kept thinking on thinking when in fact he is not a resident in Cebu.
I searched for it and really found out that it is really Manny Pacquiao - but not the boxing champ. He is Atty. Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao who claimed to be a distant related to the Filipino boxer. He will be the running mate of the younger sister of Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña, Georgia Osmeña.
Pacquiao, who is 61, a Cebuano bar topnotcher and for the past 32 years he has been a law professor in the University of the Visayas. He was also an Office-in-Charge (OIC) councilor, a Chairman of the Committee on Laws and Revision of Laws, an Assistant City Attorney and Acting City Attorney, and a Special Assistant.
