Magalong endorses ‘former boss’ Lacson for president
BAGUIO CITY—Mayor Benjamin Magalong on Friday, Feb. 18, formally endorsed his “former boss,” Sen. Panfilo Lacson, for president.
Magalong said the crisis spawned by the COVID-19 pandemic would require a leader who could address the massive economic shortfall that would plague the country in the coming years.
He announced this on the eve of this year’s Philippine Military Academy homecoming where Lacson would receive a lifetime achievement award. Magalong himself is being awarded on Saturday by the PMA Alumni Association.
Magalong joined Lacson and his running mate, Senate President Vicente Sotto III, for a dialogue with Baguio businessmen.
