Daisy Reyes, sumuko na sa pagka-konsehal ng Pateros

Daisy Reyes, sumuko na sa pagka-konsehal ng Pateros

Daisy-ReyesIlan sa kanyang mga pelikula bear titles na masasabing angkop sa kanyang reformist’s sentiments in aspiring for a higher position in local politics. Consider her films like Birador (1998), Kapag Kumulo Ang Dugo (1999), Palaban (2000), Parehas Ang Laban (2001), among others.

We’re referring to Councilor Daisy Reyes no less na sa halip na tapusin ang kanyang ikatlong termino, the 1996 Binibining Pilipinas-World is eyeing the mayoral seat in Pateros.

Famous for its balut, madalas ipangregalo ni Daisy noon ang basket ng mga itlog to her friends from the press until she joined the political fray.  And what a transition…from balut to ballot!

Na-inspire marahil si Daisy sa tinaguriang women empowerment in this day and age, thus proving there’s gender equality in any field of endeavor.

Present sa nakaraang birthday party ng kaibigang Ogie Diaz, tinanong namin ang beauty queen-turned-actress-turned-public servant kung saang partido siya kabilang. “Wala. Tumatakbo ako bilang independent candidate,” aniya.

Although her track record as a two-time councilor will speak for itself, sa ngayon ay mahirap munang magbilang ng literal na sisiw mula sa balut.
