I’ve heard lots of feedback from each of their loyal followers, yet who can really say which one performs better?  These two well-known political figures who used to be “buddies” constantly bicker and throw all sorts of accusations at each other, which result to massive negative public impression towards them.  But, which of the two performs better as a Cebu City Mayor – Tomas, who served us for 9 years or Rama, who has already served us for 2 years and is still the current Mayor of the city?

  1. Alex says:

    I pick Mike Rama, but my motives are strictly personals.

  2. Cebu Jobs says:

    I pick Rama because from the past years i see economic growth in cebu!

  3. Gerry says:

    Mayor Mike is far better than Tomas

  4. Sayitlouder says:

    Between the healthy and the sickly? Mike Rama ko. Between the honest and the corrupt? Of course, Rama. The competent lawyer and the grumpy undergrad? Rama jud. The unusually humane and the stiff-necked congressman? Ari na lang kong Rama.

  5. Lansangtalinis says:

    Rama akong pili-on. I saw him work to raise the income of the city of Cebu from P975 million sa tuig 2010 ngadto sa P3.365 billion in July 2012. Wa jud na maabot sa tibuok administrasyon ni Tommy, gikan sa tuig 1988 hangtod 2010.

  6. Cebu Jobs says:

    I will probably pick Rama over Osmena because as I’ve seen so far. Cebu City has been more progressive than it was when Tommy was still the mayor of Cebu City. In terms of corruption, I can’t say but I’m sure both of them do this.

  7. MenRet says:

    @cebujobs…what progress rama did, can u please give exact details? I pick osmena, few words more project now and the future for cebu. rama more on talks, singing, drama, radio commentator VERY LESS PROJECT OR NO PROJECT AT ALL

  8. MenRet says:

    THIS SITE IS FULL OF BIAS PEOPLE.CUM.ON BE HONEST TO YOUR SELF. GIVING LUXURIOUS CAR TO HIS BARRANGAY OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS, IS THAT PROGRESS? BUDGETING 5 BILLION A YEAR, BUT RIGHT NOW ONLY 3.3 BILLION COLLECTING, ONLY FEW MONTHS END OF FISCAL YEAR. WAKE UP

  9. donnau1 says:

    I really don’t mind if Obama win this election because I think that he has been doing a wonderful so far but if Rama wins it would be as it we have to start over from scratch again.

  10. Osho says:

    I like Mike Rama he is hard working and he did work in our city.

  11. Donaldo Ramos says:

    BIAS INDEED hehehe Wake up people. Who are you? a girlfriends or boyfriends of Mike Rama?

  12. AmbotLngNNyo says:

    Rama is one of the desciples of queen of darkness in capitol, now suspended queen…BIRDS OF THE SAME FEATHER *L*** TOGETHER!!!

    RAMA IN MAY 2013 ELECTION WILL BE 6 FT. UNDER BY TOMAS OSMENA

    USAPA NA INYO MGA ARTISTA…CGE TILA MGA SHAMCEY…

  13. leonora nacua says:

    of course we are TEAM RAMA AS WE SAID MAYOR MIKE RAMA EVEN HE IS A TWO YEARS SERVICES ALL HAVE PROGRESS, NICE.COMFORT AND BEAUTY….

  14. M1ndH4ck says:

    Team rama ko. i’m a relative but i’m not choosing him because i’m a relative. my cousin did some stupid stuff before and his mother went to mike for help. mike basically just said if you do the crime you do the time. didn’t move an inch to help.
    I like that in a leader. no favorites even if your family.

  15. Young Citizen says:

    all i can say is that, what more can it do if we are rooting for a leader who is physically and psychologically healthy? what would you prefer, be a puppet who will follow everything a leader says and commands, or be the one whose voice be heard and considered by a leader? make your votes count without any price at all!

  16. Russell Lopez says:

    Mike Rama .. Together We Can Make Things Happen.. Fight lang Team RAMA

  17. jOanimegirl_21 says:

    I will vote for team RAMA.. he is kind, humble , and a responsible leader. Attitude is a big impact on serving the nation. I like his humility and service sa mga Cebuano. Rama jud mi kay daghan benepisyo maskin lesser years in service kang Tomas.. CCMC public ghapon og mas limpyo na compared saona. Mga senyor citizen og disable nako nga paryente malipayon ayo kang Rama kay inatiman ang benepisyo. Maayo man pud si Tomas daghan nsad cya services before but I think better si Rama mopadayon sa iyang pagpapalambo diri sa Cebu. May the best win. God bless us all Cebu. 🙂

      Spppllleeeeeiiiirrtttzzzz,

      Good day!

      It is better if you place here your proof of all your accusations!

      1. You’ve said that the doctors and nurses were there sitting and not doing anything even the patient is dying! Have you heard that the hospital has already the Patient Satisfaction Survey before they lift the hospital? Try to ask. Have you heard that during Your mayor’s time he tried to sell the hospital! Did he do something to improve that hospital? Where was he?
      2. Wala bani nga mga kawatan sa panahon ni tomas? Tan awa iya gbuhat dba naa niya ang duha ka sakyanan nga ghatag sa bigfoot? and it can be seen and he is using it? Can you answer that? Kinsa run ang kawatan?
      3. Sa panahon ni Mike Rama pila na ka mga drug addicts, pushers and the like and na dakpan? Based on the performance of CITOM they improved based on surveys. Bantay pana imo wala pa nahitabo and for sure it will not happened.
      4. Imagine that most of those employees in City Hall where under the administration of your mayor Tomas! So does it mean he employed those lazy people?

      Maam/Sir show your proof all of your accusations where all speculations and not invalid!

      Careful kay mabalik na ninyo tanan!

      Pulos ra bantay imo gpanulti so pasabot dili tinood or possible ra nga mahitabo… but I know it will not happen.

      Thank you and God Bless! 😈
