It has been a few weeks since former Las Piñas City mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar passed away at age 74. Naturally, people in the city got emotional over his death and at the same time, memories of his legacy of leadership and service came back. Not only did Las Piñas City win awards or got recognized for excellence during his time as mayor from 1995 to 2004 and 2007 to 2016, the Friendship Route was established which changed the dynamics of local traffic flow. The late Aguilar was also one of the first local chief executives in the nation to introduce free basic and secondary education.
This past weekend, incumbent Las Piñas City mayor Imelda Aguilar issued a message of gratitude to all those who expressed their love and condolences for her late husband.
To put things in perspective, posted below is the said message that was published via the city’s official Facebook page.
Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Las Piñas City during the time of Vergel “Nene” Aguilar was mayor, what do you best remember him for? Were you able to see him in person many times? Was there a time you attended a meeting with him at his office at City Hall?
