Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian took to Twitter Tuesday morning after getting reelected for a second term.

Gatchalian had been thanking Twitter users who are sending him congratulatory messages.

He also made it clear that he's meant on going back to business as usual after the elections.

"(Tomorrow) we clean up the city," Gatchalian tweeted. "We all go back to work."

Gatchalian was also elated that the elected congressional representatives of the city are allies -- his brother Wes Gatchalian for 1st District and Eric Martinez for 2nd District.

"For the first time in Valenzuela history, Cong of District 1 and 2 come from the same coalition!" Gatchalian said.

"District 1 swept all councilor positions! Congrats!" he added, as he posted a photo of the proclamation.

Meanwhile, Gatchalian had this to say on Sen. Grace Poe, who conceded in the presidential race. Gatchalian served as a spokesperson for Poe.

"The most gentleman lady I met," Gatchalian described his boss. "Sen. Poe maraming salamat sa tiwala. Signing off as Spokesperson..."
