By Nancy Ibo Mediavillo

LEGAZPI CITY, May 9 (PNA) -- Governor Joey Sarte Salceda was the 16th registered voter to cast votes in his precinct in Barangay Penafrancia, Daraga, Albay at about 6:30 a.m. Monday. .

Salceda openly posted in his Facebook account who he voted for as president and vice president, saying his vote was for Albay, for change and for the future of the next generation and adding that he would honor the result of the elections.

"Voting for a better future for our children. Voting for good change. My vote is not mine, it belongs to Albay so I voted for Albay and will abide by the results of the elections," he said.

The governor said what he commented jibed with what Simon Sinek, a leadership guru, cultural anthropologist of Columbia University and founder of Sinek Partners (Corporate Refocusing), said "Leadership is not about the next election, it's the next generation."

Salceda said his father, who had just come out of the hospital, had also voted, as the latter insisted on leaving the Cardinal Santos Hospital to vote.

The outgoing Albay governor is a candidate for congressman of the second district of Albay as his term ends in June. (PNA) BNB/FGS/NIM/CBD/EBP
