Governor Alfredo Galicia Maranon, Jr. was born in Sagay City, Negros Occidental on December 21, 1935. Today, he is one of the most distinguished, respected and recognized leaders of Negros Occidental. I worked with the good governor some 8 years ago and saw for myself why he is so.
Last week, on my birthday – December 14, 2018 – out of the blue, he decided to raise my hand as his choice for mayor of Bacolod. I considered it as his birthday gift to me. Today, on his birthday, I have nothing to give that would mean a lot to him. He has everything. And has lived a full life. All I have are these pictures – which show how much he has done for both Negros Occidental and Bacolod City.
These images are all I have as a present to a man who is very dear to me because he gave me a chance to be part of his journey as a leader.
I can go on with more pictures of the Governor to show all the things he has supported but let me show the posters of the projects which the governor supported and funded for ICT.
At the end of the day, these images will show how a man has dedicated his life in helping the province and Bacolod. I will always look up to him as my mentor and my example. I thank the Lord for allowing our paths to cross. Happy Birthday Governor!!!
