After hemming and hawing for some time whether or not to run for public office, it appears Ara Mina has already made up her mind and come to a conclusion.

Mina took to social media on Oct. 18 to tell her fans that although she had a strong desire of become a public servant, running for public office in the 2019 elections would have to take the backseat.

In her Instagram post, Mina shared a picture of her with her dad, Chuck Mathay, who is running for Quezon City mayor. As per Mina, she asked for God’s sign to guide her in making her decision.

“For now, God wants me to be an obedient daughter, taking one step at a time,” she said. “I gave it a lot of thought and considered many things and although I really desire to be a public servant, I have decided not to run this coming election.”

I’m proud to be part of the Mathay family. We share this sincerity to help people. We are public servants by heart. But as for me, I need to make decisions in accordance to God’s faith and guidance because of the many opportunities and blessings coming my way now, both in career and business. I prayed and asked for God’s sign to guide me in making this very important decision…. For now, God wants me to be an obedient daughter, taking one step at a time. I gave it a lot of thought and considered many things and although I really desire to be a public servant, I have decided not to run this coming election. Sa ngayon, I will just focus on helping my DAD CHUCK because he is running for MAYOR in Q.C. and my brother CRIS in continuing his mission as a councilor in San Juan…. while I continue to be engaged in helping people and doing charities, since this has been a very meaningful part of my life over the years.❤️🙏🏻 . . #AraMina #AraMinaFamilia #MathayFamily #SmileQC #ChuckMathay

Apart from her dad, it’s known that Mina’s brother Cris Mathay is running again for San Juan City councilor. Mina comes from a family of public servants, after all, and for her, they share their sincerity to help the Filipino people.

“Sa ngayon, I will just focus on helping my DAD CHUCK because he is running for MAYOR in Q.C. and my brother CRIS in continuing his mission as a councilor in San Juan.”
