Boy Mejorada's Expose: The "White House" Mansion of Mayor Jed Mabilog Worth Only P3-Million


A staunch critic of Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, Manuel "Boy" Mejorada made an expose way back the year 2015 about the alleged "White House" mansion which was declared to be worth only P3-million. The blog post of Mejorada was no longer available online but it was copied and spread by Facebook Page Federal Philippines. 


The White House mansion of Iloilo City Mayor Jed Mabilog sits on the banks of the Iloilo River, with a P90 million Esplanade built for its occupant by the government for the sake of "beautification."

According to the expose of Mejorada, the Iloilo City Mayor declared the "White House" mansion to be worth only P3 million in his 2014 SALN. This is contrary to the estimates of some architects and engineers who estimated the value of the said mansion to be in the range of P50-70 million. 

For the windows alone, architects and engineers estimated to be worth around P7 million considering the size of the house and type of windows used, the Kenneth and Mock glass windows. 

Mayor Mabilog on his part revealed that the money used for the construction of his house came from his inheritance from his mother, but his mother was never rich, the lot on which the mansion stands was even donated to his mother by the Consing family for whom she had served as "mayor doma" for a long time. 

The Mayor of Iloilo City also pointed out that part of the money used for the construction of his house came from his wife, Marivic who is an accountant in Canada, but it is a public knowledge in Iloilo that she is not even a Chief Executive of the company and it is only a small firm.

Here's the Complete Expose of Manuel "Boy" Mejorada:

The ‘White House’ mansion of Jed Patrick E. Mabilog

Its owner, City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, has declared it to be worth only P3 million in his 2014 Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth. But architects and engineers estimate the value of this mansion to be in the range of P50-70 million, considering that its windows are the expensive Kenneth and Mock glass windows. The windows alone would be worth P7 million considering the size of the house, according to a wealthy friend who also has Kenneth and Mock windows installed on his house.

Now where did the money come from?

Mabilog said it came from his inheritance from his mother. That’s a blatant lie. His mother was never rich. That lot on which the mansion stands was donated to his mother by the Consing family for whom she had served as “mayor doma” for a long time. If you come to think of it, the property belongs to the family, and not to Jed alone.

Mabilog also points to the work of his wife, Marivic, in Canada. How much does an accountant earn in Canada? She is not even chief executive officer, and the company is small.

It’s time for Mabilog to reveal his sources of income to the people. Ilonggos have a right to know. Did he earn tens of millions of pesos from legitimate business? The Ombudsman says no. Where he got the fabulous sums of money is a mystery that even Sherlock Holmes might have difficulty figuring out. And if the money came from business, did Mabilog report the income to BIR or Kim Henares, and that he paid the right taxes?

So many questions. And yet not a single credible answer from Mabilog.
