THE new administration of Cordova town will make an inventory of furniture inside the Mayor’s Office after some government belongings were reportedly taken by the camp of defeated former mayor Mary Therese Sitoy-Cho.

“This will be part of the inventory because we are currently looking for several things such as hundreds of chairs that we lend to those holding wakes and for barangay activities. As of now, we have not seen even just one,” said Cordova Mayor Cesar Suan in Cebuano.

Suan said he did not expect that the previous administration would move out things from inside the Municipal Hall as these are government property.

While he has no tables and chairs in the office yet, Suan said he has no qualms staying in a makeshift office so as not to hinder public service.

Suan is currently holding office at the Sangguniang Bayan Session Hall.

SunStar Cebu reached out to Sitoy-Cho, but she did not give a statement as of press time.

Suan expressed his happiness that he was accompanied by his supporters and lawyers when he assumed office on Thursday.

The new mayor said they had a smooth transition on Wednesday, June 29, 2022. The transition team of Sitoy-Cho had turned over documents that Suan’s team has yet to review.

In his inaugural speech on Friday, July 1, Suan hoped that the day would be the last day of animosity towards the camp of Sitoy-Cho.

He wanted reconciliation. So he urged his supporters to extend a hand of friendship and start the healing process.

“Dili ko kamo hangyoon kon dili ako kamong orderan nga suruya ang inyohang kontra sauna (I am not just asking you but ordering you to visit your former enemies),” he said.
