* PUENTEVELLAS. 09476026410: Underdog. This is what the Puentevellas! Too much politics, lies, baseless accusations hurled against the mayor and his family members now make them the underdog. Ginadaogdaog lang sila. Gina bully. Bull... but the people of this great city know the lies will clear up soon. Meron pang boomerang na tatama sa mga sinungaling at magaling dumiskarte. Remain standing firm mayor and party!
