Juan MoguelSome representatives of the People's United Party had become so disillusioned with their political party that they have opted to start their own, or at least it appears that way. During the last round of village council elections, there was a new party contesting the elections in Indian Church Village. They visibly had on green shirts so, we will opt to call them the Green Party. While they were none too shy about showing their color, Jose Mai definitely was. He was in the village, and it was almost unbelievable that this PUP area representative did not even put up a slate to contest. Instead, he threw his support behind the Green Party. It had us wondering if indeed he had started a new party or not.

With further investigation, however, we were able to determine that Mai actually put up PUPs to run in the village council but he did not want them to run under a PUP banner since he was ashamed of the party and instead, made up his own. Even with all his maneuvering, he was unable to pull through and at the end of counting, Juan Moguel's UDP slate came out victorious.

It is not by any coincidence that Moguel was able to secure a victory in Indian Church. Over the past few months, he's been hard at work in the area, upgrading streets and ensuring the welfare of the residents in the village. It is notable that Indian Church has traditionally been a PUP village but with Moguel's hard work and dedication to the people, that was changed in the last round of village council elections.
