Former television reporter Jiggy Manicad has limited campaign funds following a decision to turn down any contributions from politicians and businessmen.

Manicad has refused to be beholden to wealthy contributors and instead relied on grassroot support to propel his senatorial bid in the May elections.

“Sa akin pong kagustuhan na huwag humingi ng pondo o pabor sa mga pulitiko o negosyong maaaring maka-impluwensya sa aking mga prinsipyo, limitado po ang pera na aking mailabas para sa kampanyang ito,” he wrote on Facebook.

Manicad said he was grateful for the support of people including those creating simple campaign materials for him.

“Kaya’t natutunaw po ang aking puso sa suportang inyong ipinakita sa akin. Mula sa paggawa ni Lola ng sarili niyang simpleng poster para sa akin o sa pagpintura ng iilan ng kanilang bahay para lang mailagay ang pangalan ko, ako’y labis na nagpapasalamat,” he said.

“Wala man po akong naglalakihang tarpaulin, libo-libong t-shirt na maibigay, o mga commercials na umaga hanggang gabi, meron po akong suporta NINYO. ‘Yun po ang pinakamahalaga,” he added.
