Here’s the response of Mayor JR Sears, according to this Philstar report
Local Politics Again?
Seares, however, suspects “politics” in the disconnection. Seares said “it wasn’t true an electric jumper device was found in his house or whatsoever”
The mayor is running against Abreco board president David Guzman in Dolores town. Seares is the cousin Abreco general manager Loreto Seares Jr., but they are reportedly at odds with each other.
Seares added that even Abreco could not show him his alleged tampered meter.
“Mismo empleyado Abreco nangibagaga (It was told to me by an Abreco employee),” he said in Iluko dialect.
Abreco, however, said they found a soldered seal in the mayor’s electric meter, bolstering their suspicion of tampering.
An electric meter is sealed with an Energy Regulatory Commission seal.
“Once there is a showing that it is destroyed, it gives evidence that it is tampered,” an Abreco officer who begged off to be named explained.
Seares was reportedly hostile while Abreco linemen were attempting to inspect his meter
