NAGA CITY — President Duterte has declared Aug. 18 a special non-working holiday in Naga City to allow residents to observe the fourth death anniversary of former Interior Secretary and long-time Naga City Mayor Jesse Robredo.

Proclamation No. 37, signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea on Aug. 9, acknowledged Robredo as a “champion of good governance.” It said Robredo was “instrumental in the implementation of far-reaching reforms in local governance.”

Robredo, husband of Vice President Leni Robredo, served as mayor of Naga City for 19 years (1988-1998, 2001-2010). During his stint, he earned numerous recognitions for good governance practices, among these the prestigious Ramon Magsaysay Award for Government Service in 2000.

The proclamation said Robredo’s “many virtues as public servant have permanently earned him gratitude to (Naga City) he led, and the Republic he served.”
