Jolo Revilla, local officials distribute rice in Kawit village

The actor-turned-politician, who belongs to the influential Revilla clan, has been trying to court the support of voters in Cavite’s 1st district as he is vying for a congressional post there in the coming May 2022 elections.

Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla, together with some local officials, led a rice distribution on November 5 in Bgry. Sta. Isabel, Kawit, Cavite coinciding with the village’s celebration of fiesta.

Revilla, accompanied by Mayor Angelo Aguinaldo and some town councilors, gave five kilos of rice to hundreds of beneficiaries in the barangay. 

“Wala nang mas makabuluhan pang paraan ng selebrasyon kundi sa pamamagitan ng ating pagtutulungan at pagdadamayan sa isa’t-isa ngayong panahon ng pandemya,” the vice governor wrote in a Facebook post.

Last October, Revilla filed his certificate of candidacy as Cavite’s 1st district representative. He is the son of Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr. and Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado.

If elected, among the young Revilla’s supposed plans of action are initiating flood control projects, giving scholarship allowances to all grade levels, and expanding the social pension program for indigent senior citizens. 

Revilla is being challenged by Dr. Paul Abaya, brother of outgoing 1st District Rep. Boy Blue Abaya, who is running for mayor against his second cousin, incumbent Kawit Mayor Aguinaldo.

Both Revilla and Aguinaldo are new members of the Duterte-allied Lakas-CMD party while the Abayas are part of the once-ruling Liberal Party. 

Cavite’s first district is composed of Cavite City, Kawit, Rosario, and Noveleta. Bacoor, the province’s second district, is the Revilla family’s bailiwick.
