Tomas “The Ex-Mayor” Osmena vs. Mike “The New Mayor” Rama

Party:            BOPK                                           Independent

Position: South District, Congressman       Cebu City Mayor

  • SRP Trophy
  • The love of the people
  • Cebu City Super Heavyweight Belt

Round Girls:

  • Joy Pesquera
  • Margot Osmena

Judges:

caloycomment: This fight will be the biggest fight in Cebu for years as perennial vice-mayor Mike Rama decided to separate himself from the “empire”.  After being elected as mayor under the formidable BOPK banner, Mayor Mike started to throw his weight around and implement his ideas in governance without consulting the powerful Tomas Osmena. The mayor has started dismantling some of ex-mayor Osmena’s policies.  Mayor Mike started to be friendly with Osmena-nemesis Governor Gwen Garcia. Mayor Rama also appointed ex-councilor Joy Pesquera and started “grilling” the members of Osmena-appointed MMT.  Mayor Mike also has been at odds of the BOPK dominated council on how to handle issues on demolition of settlers in Mahiga creek and the selling of lots in the SRP. A week ago Mayor Mike finally drew the lines and declared himself as independent(He should have waited for June 12 for added drama).

The date of the fight is tentatively May 2013 but it can be earlier. Will Mike’s new party do a Dallas Mavericks over the BOPK All-Star team? Will Mike choke under pressure just like Lebron James? This will be a very exciting fight and the hype has started in the Cebu newspapers. What do you think???
