San Enrique Mayor Trixie Fernandez edged out Mayor Jett Rojas of Ajuy in a close one-on-one contest with 20-18 votes final tally to lead the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) Iloilo chapter for the current 2019-2022 term.
In her pre-election message Fernandez committed to a “vibrant, innovative and proactive (VIP)” leadership, and promised to “lead, move and perform (LMP)” if elected to the position.
Mayor Jett Rojas served as LMP Iloilo president in the 2016-2019 term. He would have pushed for the implementation of his pending advocacies like the sanitary landfill projects through consortia of towns in the 5 districts of Iloilo.

Jett Rojas – vice president, Kalay Alonsabe – secretary, Leann Debuque – treasurer, Ansing Amboy – auditor, Manuel Ganzon – business manager, James Esmeralda – public relations officer, Suzette Alquisada – general legal counsel.
