By Mortz C. Ortigoza

MANAOAG – A mayoralty bet here bemoaned the scandalous tarpaulin wars waged by Mayor Napoleon Sales and Vice Mayor Kim Amador with each other.

Mayoralty candidate Jeremy Agerico Rosario said the actuation of the duo leaves a bad taste in the mouth with the people seeing them out staging each other on the number of self serving tarpaulins.
