Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko” Moreno, spotted in Sydney

As seen on the October 2019 issue of The Philippine Sentinel

(l-r) Diana Domagoso, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko” Moreno, Solomon Asalemo and wife Joanna Asalemo.

Diana and Joanna are both Blackbelts in Tae Kwon Do. They competed in national tournaments in 1994-95.

While Moreno was councillor, he went back to school. He wanted to fight back and prove his detractors wrong.

He too, belonged in public service. Then he heard that his fellow actor-turned-politician mayor Vilma Santos attended a few courses at the University of the Philippines to help her with her new role in politics. This inspired Isko to follow suit. He headed to UP for special programs on legislation. With the financial support of former Manila Vice Mayor Danny Lacuna,
Moreno was able to take the program and finish it. But he didn’t stop there. Moreno enrolled in leadership and governance courses at Harvard University, and at the Business School of the University of Oxford. Ω
