Antique leaders take oath in historic EBJ plaza

June 27, 2022
Today, Antique officials gathered at the Evelio B. Javier Freedom Park to take their oath as elected leaders of the province.
Senator Loren Legarda administered the oath of Governor Rhodora J. Cadiao, Vice-Governor Edgar Denosta, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Members of the North and South Dsitrict, municipal mayors, municipal vice mayors and Sangguniang Bayan members in the South District of Antique.
“Three times I have been doing this, taking my oath of office with my beloved sisters and family up here as the governor of the province of Antique”, shared Gov. Cadiao after she took her oath. “Salamat gid sa inyo pagsarig kag sa inyo pagpalangga. Thank you for the thrust and challenge.”
During her two terms, Gov. Cadiao pushed forward the salary increase for provincial government employees, strengthened social services and disaster response, gave scholarship opportunities to over 22, 000 college students, and improved province-owned hospitals, schools, and barangay facilities, to name a few.
Sen. Legarda also administered the oath of her younger brother, Antonio Agapito Legarda, Jr. as he starts his first term as congressman of the lone district of Antique.
In his inaugural speech, congressman-elect Legarda said that he had entered a new milestone in his life from private citizenship to public servant. “it is my fervent desire to work on a central theme that would guide me in the coming three years. And that is unity and continuity. There’s a saying that goes, ‘in unity, their strength’. In order to achieve strength for our province, we must unify and involve the three most important sectors of our society. We must unify the government, the private sector, and of course, the people.”
Meanwhile Sen. Legarda swore in as senator-elect with Punong Banrangay Macario Bagac of Brgy. Mag-aba, Pandan as her administering officer.
Meanwhile, remaining elected officials from the north district are expected to conduct their inauguration tomorrow in Culasi. (PIO LAVEGA)
