    Will never happen! The trike drivers association run this town and will never change!
    Pretty much the whole west side of Negros are running small electric trikes now,I'm sure this lot here know about it and would do something if they wanted to!

    One of the best laughs I've had on this site since I joined. I mean if they can't even build a ring road, bypass for the town, what hope for a monorail?

    Do a little vote counting and you see how it works in Dumaguete. There are 2,500 trikes. The trike driver makes a living, so he get family votes to support his trike provided income. So maybe there is 12,500 possible votes coming from the 2,500 trike drvers (driver, mother, father, mistress and wife.) Since most of the time the trike drives rent the trikes, there are also 2,500 trike owners but many trikes are owned by a few, so less say 650 separate trike owners. Assuming the trike owners have family members support them (owner, mother, father, wife, mistress and GF*) then there is another possible 3,800 votes, So that means support form the trike industry could possibly provide 16,300 votes. There is a trike drivers association here in Dumaguete, so there is some unification of corps here.
    In the Mayor's race Felipe Antonio “Ipe” Remollo emerged as the winner with 29,518 votes, so a possible block of 16,300 votes would receive some good pandering for votes.

    So yes, the trike drivers association does have a large political influence in this town.

    *please note that children of voting age, legitimate or otherwise were not included in this count.

    Look for the thread on the bridge that collapsed. Or do you suppose that a Chinese company will bring all it's own workers and not allow any locals to touch anything?

    The only serious thing in the link would be the part with producing e-tricycles and spare parts for these. That one would lift Dumaguete up to a better level.
