3-cornered fight for mayor
of Dumaguete imminent

From a four-cornered mayoral fight in Dumaguete, it has been trimmed down to a three-way contest after one candidate decided to back out of the race.

To date, it will be Vice Mayor Woodrow Maquiling Sr., former mayor Felipe “Ipe” Antonio Remollo and Dindo Generoso for the mayoralty race in Dumaguete, and a one-on-one between Councilor Franklin Esmena III and Councilor Antonio “Tony” Remollo, who backed out of the mayoralty race to give way to the former mayor, who is his cousin.

Councilor Remollo said it is a reality in the political arena that if both of them aspire for the same position, their chances of winning is nil, compared to the solid votes for Maquiling.moremoremore
