DAGUPAN CITY Vice-Mayor Marc Brian C. Lim defeated reelectionist Mayor Belen T. Fernandez by a narrow margin of 1,239 votes, based on unofficial results from 100% of election returns. Mr. Lim is the son of the late mayor Benjamin S. Lim, who was also a political opponent of Ms. Fernandez. Mr. Lim’s vice-mayoralty candidate, however, lost to Dean Bryan Kua, the incumbent mayor’s running mate. In his social media campaign page, Mr. Lim is quoted as saying, “Maraming Salamat Dagupan sa inyong tiwala at suporta. Ito ay tagumpay nating lahat (Thank you very much, Dagupan for your trust and support. This is a victory for all of us).”
