Some netizens commented that Vice Mayor Gonzaga took advantage of his daughters’ celebrity status.

Tay sikat ako. Kandidato ka tiyak mananalo ka kasi madaming bobong botante sa pilipinas

Others were quick to defend that he was already in office long before his daughters became famous.

Hindi pa artista si toni at alex politiko na po ang tatay nila kaya hindi totoo na mananalo siya dhil sa anak niyang artista

Some even said that his daughters’ fame was only a coincidence since the Vice Mayor is already doing a good job and that he alone can already have a huge impact without needing their help.

Ngkataon lng pong sikatmga anak but mabubuti silang tao goodluck po and make a difference sa pglilingkod

It is the first time the Vice Mayor of Taytay used his family’s popularity pull for his political purpose. When he held an earthquake drill last June 21, 2018, he had his younger daughter, Alex Gonzaga, invite fans and supporters alike to attend said drill.

Whatever the case may be, we here at KAMI wish Vice Mayor Bonoy the best of luck this coming elections.
