Catbalogan City’s 12th Charter Annivesary

Tomorrow, June 16, 2019 is the 12th Charter Anniversary of the City of Catbalogan for it was in 2017 when Catbaloganon overwhelmingly ratified its status through a plebiscite. 

However, let us remember that for a moment, our cityhood was halted for nearly two (2) years due to the petition filed by the League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) at the Supreme Court (SC) and was only restored towards the end of 2009 when SC reversed its decision with finality to our favor along with the other affected fifteen (15) cities.

Twelve (12) years as a city, three (3) of the youngest cities in Eastern Visayas along with Baybay in Leyte and Borongan in Eastern Samar as compared to older cities in the region, Catbalogan has long been the cabecera or capital of the whole island of Samar since 1616 during the Spanish occupation, and today still the leading and most competitive city in the island.

With the new administration to be installed in July 2019, a new leadership will take the helm of Catbalogan City and lead it towards continued progress and strengthened services anchored on “rig-on nga pag-ugop” or strong regard towards the whole constituency.

Happy Charter Anniversary Catbalogan!
