Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. and Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia were among the thousands of people who attended the funeral of Negros Oriental Gov. Agustin Perdices.
Leonardia authored General Assembly Resolution No. 2011-01 of the League of the Cities of the Philippines, expressing the deep sympathy of the LCP, and its heartfelt condolences to the family of the late governor, who was also former Dumaguete City Mayor, who died of stomach cancer at St. Luke’s Hospital at 76.
The LCP resolution said it “joins the Perdices family, constituents and all those who hold him in high esteem on this sad occasion in mourning over the passing of a man who gave the best years of his life in the service of his people.”
The resolution said Perdices was the epitome of a good public servant who was dedicated, reasonable, concerned and humble; that during his watch, Dumaguete metamorphosed into an educational hub and commercial center not just in Oriental Negros, but in the entire Negros Island.
That during his term as City Mayor, Perdices was a dedicated and active member of the League of Cities of the Philippines and that, his passing is a great loss to the Province of Negros Oriental including the City of Dumaguete, as well as the League of Cities of the Philippines, where he served as Regional Representative in the 19 years that he was mayor, the resolution added.
A copy of the resolution was furnished the Perdices family so they may know the shared and sincere sorrow and heartfelt sympathy and support of the LCP, Leonardia said.
The resolution was adopted during the 5th General Assembly of the League of Cities of the Philippines, January 7 to 8, at the Century Park Hotel in Manila, Leonardia added.*
