Tumakbo si TJ Trinidad bilang konsehal sa Pasay City noong 2013 elections, ngunit natalo siya.
Ngayon ay pinag-iisipan pa raw niya kung tatakbo siyang muli sa 2016 elections.
Sabi ng Kapuso actor sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “October is filing for candidacy, so we’ll see, we’ll see.
“I have not actually announced, especially to the people who worked with me dun sa campaign ko dati, kung tatakbo ako ulit o hindi.
“Nagde-decide pa talaga ako, because it’s the kind of work that you do there that’s needed.
“Madugong trabaho siya kung talagang gagawin mong tama ang pagiging public servant, e.
“Hindi siya yung pabandying-bandying lang, e.
“I‘ve had an opportunity to work and help people without being in an elected post. So, it is very fulfilling.”
Ano naman ang masasabi niya sa sinasabing "daang matuwid" ng administrasyong Aquino?
Sagot ni TJ, “Meron naman, meron naman.
“I mean, I don’t wanna sound too cynical.
“May nagagawa sila, we have to give them that credit.”
FIFTY-FIFTY. Hindi man pinalad manalo ay hindi naman daw na-trauma si TJ sa kanyang pagsabak sa pulitika.
“Hindi naman. Of course, siyempre tao lang tayo, nalungkot.
“Your competitive nature also kicks in, ‘di ba? Kasi parang, ‘A, sayang!’
“And I lost by a very small margin lang, very small margin.
“And, you know, the desire to help is still there, I’m thinking maybe behind the scenes.
“Not really as an elected official, maybe help someone who’s already elected.”
Ano ang magiging papel niya kung sakali?
“I dunno, it depends, it depends. In any way I can.
“A lot of the times kasi, yung elected official, they have to do a lot of things.
"But they’re not necessarily related to the core mandate of their position.â€¨
“So, I’d rather work behind the scene and work if I can, just focus on that.
“I don’t need the pageantry, you know, I don’t really need it, e.”
Okay lang sa kanya kung sakaling behind the scenes lang siya?
“Absolutely! I’ll be able to sleep better at night!” at tumawa si TJ.
Pero ano ang percentage ng chance na tatakbo siyang muli?
“Fifty-fifty pa rin! Fifty-fifty pa rin. Hindi pa naman tuldok.”
Si TJ ay napapanood sa GMA primetime series na The Rich Man’s Daughter.
