  • Vic Sotto expressed how proud and supportive he is to his son Vico Sotto
  • Coney Reyes also penned a heartfelt message to her son

Vic Sotto and Coney Reyes showed their support for their son Vico Sotto, the incumbent mayor of Pasig City. The young mayor has been receiving tons of praises especially from Pasig residents for his COVID-19 response.

Vic, 65, is just proud of his son’s performance as a public official though he also said that other leaders are doing good too.

Vic related, “Of course, proud ako na he’s doing a good job. Pero sabi ko nga, hindi lang naman siya, pati yung ibang mga ating namumuno sa bansa. Lahat sila, they’re doing a good job. Sabi ko nga, mula sa ating Pangulo hanggang sa ating mga health workers, e, talagang sama-sama. Pag sama-sama, may bayanihan, kakayanin natin ‘to.”

The actor also agreed with Vico’s statements which said that local government units (LGUs) should not be compared to each other.

“May nadinig akong interview sa kanya, maganda yung sinabi niya na dapat wala nang kumpara-kumpara. Ako, personally, dapat tigilan muna yung pulitika. Wala muna yung pulitikahan. Isipin na lang natin kung papa’no tayo makakatulong sa kapwa. Kahit nasa bahay tayo, kung wala man tayong magawa na pang-donate na kung ano man, magdasal tayo. Iyon ay isa sa mga donasyon na puwede nating gawin na maaaring makatulong sa ating kapwa.”

“Yung kay Vico, I think he’s doing his job. Iyon ang ipinangako niya sa kanyang mga constituents, na aalagaan sila—and he’s doing a good job. At hindi lang siya… Hindi natin puwedeng kalimutan ‘yan, talagang ‘ika nga, medyo lumalaban sila nang tagilid. Nakataya ang buhay nila. Pero lumalaban sila para sa ating kapwa. Iyon ang ating mga lodi, ‘ika nga. Iyon ang mga idol natin. So, yung pulitika, kalimutan na natin ‘yan. Saka na tayo magpulitikahan pagkatapos ng krisis.”

Vic then emphasized the importance of staying inside during the enhanced community quarantine.

“Sana sumunod na lang sa mga patakaran na nilalahad ng ating gobyerno. Yun naman ay para sa atin, e. Para sa ating mga kababayan, para sa ating lahat. Hindi lang sa Pilipinas, kundi sa buong mundo. Kasi hindi lang naman Pilipinas ang apektado dito, e, kundi buong mundo.

“Ibang usapan na ‘to. Kailangan talaga ng sakripisyo. Alam nating maraming nahihirapan. Pero siguro tiisin na lang natin ang hirap na ito, kesa naman ang ating mga kamag-anak ay magkasakit at kung ano pa ang mangyari.”

He added, “Gusto natin mabawasan, gusto natin matigil. Although, hindi ganun kadali sa nakikita ko, iyon ang aking personal na opinyon. Sana maging istrikto tayo sa sarili natin. Yung sarili natin, disiplinahin natin. Yung mga nahihirapan, yung mga nawalan ng trabaho, e, alalayan naman sila ng ating gobyerno. Hindi sila maaring makalimutan ng ating mga namumuno. Yun lang siguro ang hinihingi ng ating gobyerno—yung disiplina. Yun naman ay para sa kabutihan ng lahat.”

Meanwhile, Coney shared a video clip of Vico on Instagram and included a heartfelt message.

The veteran actress also thanked Vico’s team and supporters for standing beside him amid battling the viral outbreak in the country.

“Someone sent me this short video clip of my son. I thank God for his sense of humor (which I’m sure he got from his Papa) amidst all that we are experiencing as a people… as a nation. Thank you so much to all the men and women who tirelessly work alongside Vico! Bilib ako sa inyo! Maraming Salamat sa walang patid na tulong at suporta! God is your ultimate Rewarder! I would also personally like to thank all the people who continue to pray for Vico and his team! God bless us all and keep us in His loving care. God is our Refuge and Strength! Our ever-present help in times of need! Mga kapwa Filipino! Stay strong! Konti nalang ito, di ba Lord?!”

Vico, the youngest mayor in Metro Manila, has been showered with praises for his plausible response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Among of his lauded activities are having routine disinfection of 45 public schools in Pasig City before the lockdown, distribution of 500 disinfecting kits to the city’s 30 barangays, deploying disinfection drones to help curb the spread of COVID-19, the launching of a “mobile palengke” and Earth-friendly shuttles to help frontliners get to work in the city.
