"Our condolences to the Marcos Family. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with Cong. Imelda Romualdez Marcos," the mayor tweeted today, May 8.
Later on, she apologized for making a mistake about the former first lady’s death.
“I would like to apologize for my tweets which I have erased. I received news break message informing the public about Mrs. Marcos,” she posted.

Imelda was the wife of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
