Bamban Mayor Alice Guo Stresses She’s Single

Mayor Alice Guo is Single?

ALICE GUO – The mayor of Bamban, Tarlac, stressed that she’s single.

Alice Leal Guo is a businesswoman and politician currently serving as the mayor of Bamban, Tarlac, since June 30, 2022. She has been a member of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) since 2023, having previously been an independent. Guo has an extensive business background, with significant shares in at least 11 companies.

Guo’s political career began with her filing for candidacy as an independent in October 2021, eventually winning the mayoral race in May 2022. Her tenure has been marked by controversy, particularly concerning alleged links to Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs). Senators have accused her of being involved in illegal POGO activities and questioned her Filipino citizenship due to inconsistencies in her documents and testimony.

Despite denying any involvement with POGOs and stating her opposition to them, her properties have been linked to POGO operations. These operations were raided for illegal activities, including human trafficking and cybercrimes. Amidst these controversies, she has faced inquiries from both the Senate and the Department of the Interior and Local Government, with recommendations for her suspension.

In a recent Senate hearing, Bamban, Tarlac Mayor Alice Guo denied having a spouse or boyfriend, refuting claims by Senator Jinggoy Estrada that she has a partner involved in POGOs. “Wala po akong boyfriend. Wala po akong partner… Wala rin po akong POGO business, your honor,” she said.

Guo also denied owning a POGO business and stated that she would ban POGOs in her town due to their links to human trafficking and scams. Despite previously supporting POGOs for economic reasons, Guo now opposes them. This stance shift follows a raid in Bamban where nearly 900 people were rescued from a compound linked to illegal activities. Senator Estrada has also changed his position and now supports banning POGOs in the Philippines.
