Phuket: Patong’s first woman Mayor confirmed, starts work
PHUKET: The election of Chalermluck Kebsup as Mayor of Patong has been confirmed by the Election Commission, and Patong’s first woman mayor has already started work, effective last Wednesday (May 21).
She told The Phuket News today, “The first thing I am going to do is to prepare to solve the flood problem, followed by the garbage problem and then the Mafia.
“I want to create a situation where those who are doing everything legally do not have to pay influential people.”
Mrs Chalermluck won the election on April 26 with more than half the votes cast, leaving incumbent mayor Pian Keesin with just 3,330 votes out of 8,500 cast.
