Manuel-Chiquiting-Sagarbarria is the new Mayor of Dumaguete City. In a close race he beat Vice-Mayor Woodrow Maquiling by only 51 votes.
This result was officially proclaimed this morning at 10:30 am. A lot of work is waiting for the new City Mayor Chiquiting Sagarbarria and the Dumaguete Info Team wishes him good luck and all the best for his position he has for at least the next three years.
The Elections 2010 were for most voters in Dumaguete a test of their patience and long lines could be observed at the voting precincts. Being known as gentle people, it was a peaceful act. Due to bad signals of the provider, the flash cards of the results needed to be removed from the voting machines and brought to the City Hall.
We just can hope that Dumaguete City under the guidance of Manuel Chiquiting Sagarbarria will go a better organized direction in this lovely growing City.
The biggest surprise of this years election was probably Alan Gel Cordova who got elected as a vice mayor.
