Ester Hamor is running against Sally Lee who is in her second term as Mayor, and she had been previously Governor and 6 years as city mayor in 2000 as the first mayor of the city when it was created.

The camp of Lee was subjected to various criticism from the public because of various issues such as no clear program in public health care, transportation, garbage and a lot more.

The Lees have been in a local politics for more than three decades, Their patriarch, Raul Lee, became mayor of then municipality of Sorsogon, and had stayed in power as Governor. Last year, Raul was sentenced by the Sandiganbayan for violation of the graft and corruption law. At present, his son (Bobet Lee) is now the incumbent Governor who is running for Congressman in second district.
