ILIGAN CITY/24 June 2013—Mayor Lawrence Lluch  Cruz today officially bade farewell to employees of City Hall and his constituents as he sets to leave the executive seat of government on mid-day of 30 June.

Cruz, a lawyer by profession, has been in public service for 28 years, the last nine of which were as city mayor of Iligan.

His mayoralty was met with challenges, the biggest of which was when the city was struck with the floods caused by Typhoon Sendong, leaving hundreds of residents dead while those who survived, homeless.

Even in his last weeks as mayor, Cruz has been calling for his constituents to cooperate with the incoming chief executive, Mayor-Elect Celso Regencia, saying that Iligan must remain united under the circumstances and not allow a political divide to hinder its development. He further urged councilors-elect to pass ordinances and institute projects that would give due priority to public good.

Broadcaster Francisco Dusdus commends this move.  “It is important that the outgoing Mayor must lead in supporting the incoming administration.  It will set the tone for the new era and everybody’s awareness to help and be vigilant all the time,” he said.

As he met City Hall employees, many thanked him for his leadership and service.

Cruz delivered his term report on 16 June, as the city celebrated its 63rd anniversary. (The PhilSouth Angle)
