At the proclamation, Sagarbarria said, “I am happy and honored that the City of Gentle People gave me another 36 months to serve them.” 

He won in all 30 barangays. Dumaguete City has a total of 73,270 registered voters.

The official turnout in Dumaguete based on the 90 precincts canvassed is 79.43%, which is higher than previous elections.
