Veach served as Manila mayor from October 1983-94. He retired as mayor and served on the city council from 1995-98. He was again elected mayor in 2002 and is seeking re-election this year.
"I enjoy being the mayor of Manila," Veach said. "I have been very accessible by spending several hours daily on the job. I want to help people when they have a problem and see their tax money is properly spent. Being mayor has become more of a full time job rather than part-time. It's been a pleasure working with our city council. They have done an excellent job in performing their duties."
Veach said people of Manila have been good to him by allowing him to represent them for several years.
"I ask for your support again this year," he said.
