Acting Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome officially launched his re-election campaign, unveiling the full slate of candidates running for deputy mayor and Pattaya City Council under the “We Love Pattaya” party banner.
“Today, we officially introduce the ‘Rao Rak Pattaya’ party, whose purpose is to purely serve residents,” Itthiphol said May 11 at the SK Pattaya building. “We hope to continue the work we started and expand and develop other important systems such as water, electricity and public utilities so Pattaya can become a top international destination and tourism attraction.”
