Napuno na? Here’s why Sorsogon Vice Gov Hamor wants to run for city mayor

Sorsogon City Hall consultant Jovic Duran pissed Sorsogon Vice Governor Ester Hamor so much, the latter now wants to unseat his boss, City Mayor Sally Lee.

In a Bicol Today report Monday (April 17), Casiguran, Sorsogon Mayor Edwin “Bobby” Hamor bared that it was Duran who ultimately swayed his wife, the vice governor, into declaring her candidacy for mayor in 2019.

“Laban kun laban, walang urungan” (fight for a fight, no retreat),” Mayor Hamor was quoted as saying in the report.

Allegedly, Duran has been launching “personal virulent attacks” against the Hamor couple.

Feeling “cornered,” Vice Governor Hamor took it upon herself to respond by declaring her intent to run for Sorsogon City mayor on Monday, which was also her birthday.

If anything, the Hamors acknowledged that toppling Lee, a former provincial governor, would be a tough task.
