TEAM Rama standard bearer Mayor Michael Rama welcomed the endorsement of the Unity for Life of his reelection bid.
“All endorsements will always be welcome,” said Rama.
Rama said the endorsement of support which he received from the Unity for Life group was mainly because of his opposition to alleged “vigilantism” in the city and his stand against the Reproductive Health Law.
The Unity for Life group gathered at the Plaza Independencia on Sunday for a mass and to formally endorse local and national candidates they thought are exemplars of the pro-life values.
While Rama was not formally endorsed during the gathering, he was given a special mention because of his pro-life stand.
Meanwhile, Team Rama claimed yesterday that a survey commissioned by a Manila-based business group revealed Mayor Rama’s high approval rating of 61 – 65 percent.
Although they did not divulge the identity of the group that did the survey, Team Rama campaign manager Joey Daluz said the survey reaffirmed their own survey.
But Cebu City south district Rep. Tomas Osmeña assailed the credibility of the survey of his political opponent.
“It’s not the first time or the last time you will hear claims by unknown if not fictitious persons. If there are fools who believe it, I also have friends who will wager against it,” Osmeña who is trying to regain the reigns of the City Hall said./Edison Delos Angeles and Doris C. Bongcac
