Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday called on Bacoleños to continue supporting Jai and Joj Agpangan, who are competing in the Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 4 of ABS-CBN, by sending text votes as the show finale is set tonight in Malolos, Bulacan.
Leonardia said the twins, who are from Barangay Villamonte, Bacolod, deserve to be the big winners as they have shown good characteristics worthy of emulation, especially by Filipino teenagers.
The victory of the twins will not only be theirs but also of Bacoleños as they will put Bacolod City in the limelight again, the mayor said.
Streamers urging the support of Bacoleños and Negrenses to ensure the victory of the Agpangan twins have been put up by the Bacolod City government, he said.
Talisay City has also expressed support for the twins, while Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) and Bacolod Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson urged the public to vote for the Agpangans.
Campaigns to gain text votes for the twins are being waged over Facebook and Twitter.
Voters must text: BBS<space>JAIJOJ and send it to 231 for Smart and Talk and Text subscribers, and 2331 for Globe, Sun and Touchmobile subscribers.
The public is urged to wear blue today as a show of support for the twins.
The Agpangans are competing against Myrtle Sarosa, a Sangguniang Kabataan chairman and Cosmo Player from Iloilo, Karen Reyes, a dancer from Mindoro, and Roy Roquero, a construction worker from Naga City.*APN
