Congressman, in a radio interview earlier, called his political group as Team Performance. He said Team Performance will file their respective CoCs banking on his accomplishments as well as on individual accomplishments of his slate especially in terms of public service.
Those who marched with Evardone, Zacate and Picardal are the 1st District Provincial Board Candidates Karen Alvarez, Atty. Byron Suyot, Nelson Cortez, Benjum Umil and former Vice Governor Leander Geli. Alvarez is serving her first term as city councilor of Borongan City while Suyot is seeking for reelection.
Team Performance also include Jenny Baldono, Vice Mayor Vegerano Gesite, Jun Villar, Maricar Sison and Remy Fabillar-Loste as candidates for the 2nd District. Baldono is seeking for reelection while the rest are first time candidates for a provincial position. Gesite had been a five-term Mayor of Balangkayan town and is now serving his first term as its Vice Mayor.
The filing of candidacy of Team Performance was supported by various groups in the province, municipal officials and other provincial functionaries.
Meanwhile, Zacate, currently the Chief-of-Staff of the solon, said that he is overwhelmed by the support the people of Eastern Samar are giving him. “I am hopeful that the mounting support the people are giving me will go down the entire stretch in time for the 2013 elections,” Zacate said.
Barangay and municipal officials had been calling him to run for the highest elective position in the province mainly on ground of poor performance of the incumbent governor.
