Former beauty queen Leren Mae Bautista won as one of the councilors in the Lone District of Los Baños, Laguna, receiving 25,345 votes, the highest among the other candidates.

In a social media post, Bautista expressed her gratitude to her constituents and supporters.

She wrote, “‘Hindi kailan man mananaig ang kasamaan.’ Sa kabila ng mga #FakeNews na lumabas oras bago magbotohan, ang katotohanan parin ang nagwagi.

“Transparency and honesty always starts with oneself. And for one to champion it, you must begin with yourself.”

She promised her constituents that she’ll serve the community with honesty.

“Ang boto at tiwalang ipinagkaloob nyo po sa akin ay hindi ko kailanman sasayangin. Maglilingkod po tayo ng tapat at totoo sa ating bayan,” she said.

“Ang genuine love at support ninyo po sa akin ay ipinakita ninyo sa inyong mga boto. ♥️ Maraming Salamat po.”

She continued her message thanking the people from Los Baños for giving her a chance and that she’ll return the favor by serving truthfully.

“Sa araw-araw po ng aking paghahouse-to- house, nagalak po akong makilala at makasama kayong lahat. Maraming salamat po sa pagkakataon na ako ay inyong tinanggap at kinilala.”

“Taos puso ko po itong tatanawin na utang na loob, na nais kong suklian ng tapat at di-matatawarang paglilingkod,” Bautista said.

“Sa aking mga kababayan, mahal na mahal ko po kayo. Walang salitang nakapagpapahayag ng aking walang hanggang pasasalamat. Numero uno kayong lahat sa puso ko!”

Bautista finished in the Top 10 of Miss Universe Philippines 2021.

She also represented the Philippines in the Miss Globe pageant in 2019.
