The Reluctant Politician

Leadership unlike fortune cannot be simply bequeathed to a son or a kin. Yet sometimes, circumstances have their own peculiar way of doing things. Others simply call it destiny.

Reynaldo Salvador San Pedro was born on March 4, 1964 in Angat, Bulacan. He is the eldest among the three siblings of simple peasant folks Rogelio Feliciano San Pedro and Flora Bantog Salvador. In the late '60s, their family decided to join their relatives who migrated to municipality of San Jose del Monte.

Even during his early childhood, Rey would learn the values of hard toil. He would be the dependable farmhand of his father. In between, he would do odd jobs in a bakery or would wash buses in a nearby terminal. In his youth, Rey would be a familiar guy in the many circles of ordinary people in the community. And though he belongs to a family with enough means, Rey would prefer to hang around with the poor folks in the urban poor resettlement areas of Sapang Palay.

Rey would harbour a strong aversion to politics when his father was elected Municipal Vice Mayor in the Cory Aquino administration because he knew that his father's dedication in helping and defending the poor and the oppressed will demand, if not all, but most of his father's time to public service. This aversion turned into a deep seated sorrow in his father's untimely death in December 21, 1991. Thus, for young Rey, politics is a dirty game and he promised himself that he would never ever take part on it. He would rather be an ordinary guy among ordinary people. He would rather be with the masses.

Destiny's call

The death of his father left a vacant seat in the Municipal Council of San Jose del Monte. In deference to the martyrdom of the assassinated Vice Mayor, then Governor Roberto M. Pagdanganan appointed Rey as a member of the Council. After so much convincing, Rey accepted the offer understanding that it is his duty both to his father and to the people whom his father had selflessly served. This crucial and life-changing decision was welcomed by the people who believed that Rey must continue his father's legacy.

This overwhelming support was reaffirmed when Rey was elected as Municipal Councilor in the local elections of 1995 and was re-elected in 1998. In 2004, he won the election as City Vice Mayor and was re-elected again in 2007 with a landslide victory.

But In the middle of the same year, then Mayor Eduardo V. Roquero, MD succumbed to a heart attack. Following the rule of succession, the newly re-elected Vice Mayor assumed the Mayoralty post. But Rey's stint as Mayor in 2009 was short-lived by a dramatic turn of events. He lost his post to a legal petition filed by the losing Mayoralty candidate. The strong clamour of the people compelled Rey to ran in the Synchronized National and Local Elections of 2010. He won and got a margin of 20,000 votes from his closest opponent.
