Today Bocaue lost its finest public servant. Mayor Joni was relentlessly serving Bocaueños during this lockdown despite her medical condition, which eventually caused her life. She’s more than a public servant to me, she’s my role model. Will terribly miss her 💔 #gonetoosoon— Joel Villanueva (@senatorjoelv) May 28, 2020
