Title: Former Tubigon Mayor Paul Lasco Returns To His Creator
Post by: U.S. of America on July 06, 2008, 08:08:12 AM
       Former Tubigon Mayor Paulo Manigo Lasco died on June 22, at the age of 68.

      “Boy” as he was fondly called by friends, was married to Delia Fuentespina of Davao with  whom he had three sons and two daughters.

      His body lies in state at his residence in barangay Pooc Occidental, this town. His body will be cremated today at Rolling Hills Funeral Homes in Cebu City.

      Mayor Lasco used to be a junior editor of the defunct Philippine Free Press in Manila in the late 1960’s and rose his way to the ranks.

      He became a municipal public development officer (MPDO) of this town, then later elected as vice mayor for one term.

      He served as the mayor for three successive terms from 1998-2007.

      As mayor, he was instrumental in modernizing this town by initiating the construction of the two-story Tubigon commercial complex in 2004.

      Two years later, the old market structure was gutted by fire.

      He was also instrumental in the construction of the Tubigon cultural and sports center, renovation of the municipal hall and the improvement of the town plaza.

      Lasco also initiated the establishment of the municipal waterworks system and supported the Philippine Ports Authority in upgrading the town’s port into what it is at present.

      He was also instrumental in the construction of a controlled dumpsite facility and a modern abattoir in a 3.2-hectare lot in barangay Macaas.

      Lasco also initiated the construction of a post-harvest facility in barangay Cahayag and an experimental laboratory building for crabs and multi-species facility in barangay Matabao as just among the several projects he made, aside from the different bridges and farm-to-market roads he accomplished for the development of this town.

      Lasco pursued a vision and a dream to improve the quality of life of the constituents, a legacy he wanted to leave for the generations to come. - Bohol Sunday Post Newspaper
