MAYOR VI'S LATEST MOVIE TO RAISE FUNDS FOR LIPA
Lipa City, July 1, 1998 - The "Star For All Seasons" and now Mayor of Lipa City says she may arrange a premiere of what could be her last movie to raise funds for any project to benefit her constituency.
The movie "Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa" starring Mayor Vilma Santos could have its premiere in Lipa City, where the multi-awarded Movie-TV superstar was inducted into office in star- studded ceremonies June 30.
"Bata, Bata" will open in Metro Manila theaters in late July. Because of Vilma's decision to seriously tackle the job of Mayor of Lipa, she announced that the movie could be her last one for the duration of her term, which ends in the year 2001.
Also because of her new job as the city's chief executive, Vilma is building a new home in Lipa City to serve as her private enclave. The old home she shares with her husband, Batangas Rep. Ralph Recto, has become a public reception area for the citizens of Lipa City and Batangas province.
The new home for the Rectos, to begin construction in August, will be in an exclusive subdivision described by Ronald Constantino of the Bulletin Online as "nestled among hills and valleys."
Mayor Vilma graduated from a University of the Philippines special course on Public Governance right after her victory in the May 11 elections, to prepare her for her new job.
