Former Las Piñas City Mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar (1947-2021)

Last week, August 20, 2021 became a sorrowful day as former Las Piñas City Mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar passed away which the City Government of Las Piñas confirmed. He was 74-years-old and left a legacy of public service having served as the head of the local government unit (LGU) for a grand total of eighteen years (1995-2004 and 2007-2016). His wife Imelda is the incumbent Mayor and their daughter April Aguilar-Nery is the incumbent Vice Mayor.

From the City Government.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the official statement issued by Mayor Imelda Aguilar which the City Government released on August 20…

It is with profound sorrow that our family announces the passing of my husband and our patriarch, former Mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar.

At the age of 74, Nene joined our beloved Creator today, August 20, 2021, at 4:12 am, succumbing to a heart ailment after being confined at St. Luke’s Medical Center – Global City.

Nene, it pains all of us that you are no longer with us, but we know that you have accomplished your mission in this world, not only to your family and loved ones, but to the hundreds of families you have served and supported throughout your years in service.

As the current Mayor of Las Piñas, the legacy and selfless public service you have rendered as mayor for 18 years to the people of Las Piñas will serve as my inspiration. Your years as the local chief executive have led to the unprecedented growth of our city. We will miss you very much.

We invite our loved ones, friends, and all of the people of Las Piñas to remember him and celebrate his life and the love and joy he has imparted to all of us.

For the newcomers reading this, former Mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar led the LGU for almost twenty years. According to local history, he first became mayor at a time when Las Piñas was still a municipality. Las Piñas formally became a city on March 26, 1997 and that was within Aguilar’s first term. Under his leadership, socio-economic development followed and the new city got recognized. There is no denying that Las Piñas became progressive and continues to progress and has emerged as one of the most notable cities of South Metro Manila.

A look back at a few of the many achievements of the city under Mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar.

In an article published by Philippine News Agency (PNA), Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar paid tribute to former Mayor Aguilar and expressed his sorrow. Posted below is an excerpt…

In a press statement, Andanar said it pains him to lose Aguilar who had been a father figure to him.

“It’s with great sorrow, sadness, and pain that I grieve the loss of a father figure like former Las Piñas Mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar who passed away today, August 20, 2021, due to a heart ailment,” said Andanar.

Aguilar’s passing was announced by his wife, incumbent Mayor Imelda Aguilar, through a statement posted on the official Facebook page of City of Las Piñas.

Aguilar, 74, passed away on Friday morning at St. Luke’s Medical Center at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

Andanar remembered Aguilar, whom he fondly called “Papa Nene,” for the latter’s “unselfish public service, commitment, and dedication to lead and generate great changes” in Las Piñas City.

He also hailed Aguilar for giving “unparalleled” progress to Las Piñas City and its people.

“You have touched the lives of so many people, but your silent demeanor was a gushing river of wisdom and affection that brought happiness and, most of all, love to our small family,” Andanar said. “Papa Nene, you may have left us in this world and have joined our Creator, but the memories and teachings you have shared with us all will be remembered perpetually.”

He left behind four daughters — Las Piñas Vice Mayor April Aguilar-Nery, Dr. Aivee Aguilar-Teo, Alelee Aguilar-Andanar, and Anne Aguilar.

He was also Senator Cynthia Villar’s brother.

He was a property developer before entering public service in 1992. He then served as mayor of Las Piñas City for six terms, first from 1995 to 2004, and from 2007 to 2016.

His father Dr. Filemon Aguilar, was also a former Las Piñas mayor.

During his term, Las Piñas was recognized as one of the best-managed cities in the country, according to the city’s official website.

National and international awards, including the United Nations Award for Environmental Protection, were handed out to the city under his term.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a long-time Las Piñas City resident who lived when former Mayor Vergel “Nene” Aguilar led the City Government, what is the best thing you remember about him with regards to public service?

COVID-19 Crisis: SM Southmall certified safe in Las Piñas City

SM Southmall, a major shopping and lifestyle destination located along Alabang-Zapote Road in Las Piñas City, recently received its Safety Seal and Vice Mayor April Aguilar-Nery was present during the inauguration ceremony at the mall.

To put things into perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the news report published by the Manila Bulletin. Some parts in boldface…

SM Southmall has been awarded with the safety seal. With Las Piñas rolling out the safety seal inspection in the region, SM Southmall is the first mall city to receive the seal.

Present in the inauguration were the Vice Mayor of Las Pinas City, Hon. April T. Aguilar; Chief of the Business Permits and Licensing Office Mr. Willy Gaerlan; Bernice Baculi, AVP of Operations for SM Southmall and Sally Chandumal, Mall Manager of SM Southmall.

“I am very pleased to be here in SM Southmall for the awarding of the safety seal certificate wherein SM Southmall is the first to pass the safety seal inspection conducted by our team,” says BPLIO Head Willy Gaerlan, “we hope we will maintain the standard we’ve already received.”

SM Southmall continues to excel in its safety and sanitation protocols with temperature checks, one-way signs, social distancing rules, alfresco dining, safety protocol officers and constant hygiene maintenance to ensure the safety of its customers.

In my personal observation, SM Southmall and SM shopping malls, literally, went the extra mile in keeping their facilities sanitized, cleaned and orderly. As for what the Safety Seal is, it is the indication that the establishment is compliant in terms of the standard safety protocols and other related requirements. In nearby Muntinlupa City, the Alabang Town Center (ATC) was certified with the Safety Seal and other malls in the city applied for the seal.

Going back to Las Piñas City, the Safety Seal continues to make its presence felt even more. Already offices in Las Piñas City Hall got certified with the Safety Seal making them safe for people to visit. The City Government has a team dedicated on handling Safety Seal certifications.

For South Metro Manila residents reading this, SM Southmall’s safety certification is a big help not just to the mall itself and to its business partners, but also to anyone who needs to be at the mall for their respective needs, dining, and business transactions.

COVID-19 Crisis: Las Piñas City vaccination sites inspected by DILG undersecretary Jalosjos

In a very recent report by the Manila Bulletin, an undersecretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) visited one of the vaccination sites of Las Pinas City although the City Government’s own Facebook page showed that two vaccination sites were visited – one at SM Southmall (pictured in Manila Bulletin’s report) and the other at University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Gym-1.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from Manila Bulletin’s report. Some parts in boldface…

COVID-19 Crisis: A4 patients vaccinated in Las Piñas City while newest vaccination site opens

The wave of vaccination of patients under the A4 category has reached Las Piñas City! According to a report by the Manila Bulletin, the City Government of Las Piñas received guidelines from the Department of Health (DOH) which paved the way to launch A4 vaccination locally. As with other cities in the National Capital Region (NCR), Las Piñas officially took part in the  launch event that took place on June 7. Not only that, a new COVID-19 vaccination has been established locally.

For the details, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin’s report. Some parts in boldface…

The Las Pinas City government has started the inoculation of the A4 priority group or economic frontliners with the addition of a new vaccination site that will cater to around 300 people per day.

Vice-Mayor April Aguilar said the new vaccination site is located at The Village Square located along Concha Cruz Drive corner Alabang-Zapote Road, Las Pinas City. This is the 16th vaccination center in the city.

Aguilar said four more vaccination sites will open in the city.

She said the latest and biggest vaccination site that opened on June 2 was The Tent, Vista Global South in C5 Extension, that can cater to around 650 to 1,000 people a day.

The vice-mayor said the city government already received the guidelines from the Department of Health (DOH) on the vaccination of persons under the A4 category.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt (note: translated from Tagalog) from the City Government’s official Facebook page post regarding the matter. Some parts in boldface…

The Las Pinas City Government, led by Vice Mayor April Aguilar, joined today in the NCR 8+ Virtual Commitment Ceremony and Symbolic Vaccination of A4. Vice Mayor April and other Metro Manila Mayors swore in and attended via Zoom.

Also present at the scene were DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez, DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello, PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, Secretary Carlito Galvez, Secretary Vince Dizon where they all gave messages. The Chair of Senate Committee on Health and Demography Sen. also delivered a special message. Bong Go as well as DOH Secretary Francisco Duque III and the last is the message of Dear President Rodrigo R. Duterte for the people encouraging to get vaccinated and be safe.

Currently, the City Government is continuously conducting the master listing of A4 so that when the National Government issues guidelines, we will immediately vaccinate in the said category.

For clarification, A4 is the category pertaining to frontline personnel in essential sectors, including uniformed personnel according to the Department of Health (DOH). Previously, COVID-19 vaccination programs served patients categorized A1 (workers in frontline health services), A2 (all senior citizens) and A3 (persons with comorbidities).

More on the City of Las Piñas, it should be noted that the City Government, the barangays and other strategic partners have been working hard to have their constituents vaccinated for COVID-19 and help the unvaccinated citizens to come forward by registering for the free vaccines.

In recent times, the City Government launched a third way of helping people get registered, that over 80,000 residents have gotten vaccinated (first and second doses altogether), and those who got vaccinated can qualify to win prizes in a special raffle draw under the incentive program of Las Piñas City Representative Camille Villar. The City Government already announced that additional vaccination sites will be established.

More on the vaccination of patients under A4 category, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Ramon Lopez stated that this development will boost the Philippines inoculation program as well as its economic recovery.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: Are you categorized as an A4 patient for COVID-19 vaccination? Have you checked with the local authorities about this matter?

For those living in Las Piñas, does this development encourage you to get registered and join the line for the free COVID-19 vaccines?

COVID-19 Crisis: A new way of registering for free vaccines in Las Piñas City now available

To ensure that more of the constituents can get registered to avail of free COVID-19 vaccines, the City Government of Las Piñas added a third option of registering and has since been implemented. This was revealed in a recent news report by the Manila Bulletin.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

Aside from the manual and online registration, Vice Mayor April Aguilar said Las Piñas is also offering on-site assisted registration in the city’s vaccination venues.

Aguilar said registration officers will be deployed in vaccination sites to assist visitors or passers-by who wish to be listed for vaccination.

In a recent post by the City Government on its official Facebook page, those who register on-site will be given a profiling form for them to disclose their details. This third way of registration should attract the attention of those who don’t have smartphones or computers, those who don’t have access to the Internet and those who could not register themselves the manual way.

In relation, the number of residents who got vaccinated has exceeded the 80,000 mark. In fact, most recently, the latest count was updated by the local health office as 86,137 as of June 2, 2021. The breakdowns are 57,597 who were vaccinated with the first dose, and 28,540 residents who received successfully their second dose. The grand total of Las Piñas should reach 100,000 soon.

Let this be a key reference for you.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: Are you an unregistered Las Piñas resident who feels intimidated with the manual and online registration methods that were available? Does the addition of on-site assisted registration encourage you to get registered? If you were to choose among the three methods, which one appeals to you the most?

Does this latest development from the City Government encourage you to get registered and line up for the free COVID-19 vaccine?

To those who got vaccinated already in Las Piñas City, how long did it take you to get vaccinated during your time at the local vaccinate site? Were the personnel gentle and helpful towards you? Were walk-ins allowed?

To Las Piñas City residents who successfully got vaccinated with two doses, are you thankful to the City Government officials, personnel and their strategic partners for organizing the local vaccination program during this time of crisis?

COVID-19 Crisis: Las Piñas City Government to add five more vaccination sites

Last time around, SM Southmall and SM Center Las Piñas became the new locations for the additional COVID-19 vaccination sites in the City of Las Piñas and went on with the vaccination services of local residents who previously registered through the city’s system.

That’s not all, however. According to a recent report by the Manila Bulletin, the City Government of Las Piñas announced that it will add not one, not two, but FIVE more vaccination sites so that they can reach their target of vaccinating six thousand people per day.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

The Las Piñas city government will add five more vaccination sites to achieve its goal of inoculating 6,000 persons per day.

Vice-Mayor April Aguilar-Nery disclosed the plan of adding five vaccination sites in the next two weeks as part of the city government’s “Ligtas na Las Piñeros, Lahat Bakunado” vaccination program.

During the Bakuna Benefits segment of Angkas chief transport advocate George Royeca, Nery said the city currently has a total of 15 vaccination sites from 10 barangay covered courts, two hospitals — the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center and the Las Piñas Doctors Hospital, and three additional sites at the SM Southmall, SM Center, and Robinsons Mall.

The vice-mayor said the city government is planning to add five more vaccination sites since Mayor Imelda Aguilar wants all city residents to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The city also aims to inoculate 300 residents per vaccination site per day for a total of 6,000 persons per day.

Nery said the city government purchased 300 AstraZeneca and 200 Novavax vaccines to achieve the mayor’s goal of inoculating all city residents.

To date, a total of 40,000 frontline health workers, senior citizens, and adults with comorbidities have received their first dose of vaccines and 15 for the second dose.

If you do the math, the City Government’s plan of establishing new sites will push their current total of 15 vaccination sites to 20 vaccination sites. While the report published details sourced from Vice Mayor April Aguilar-Nery, there is no indication as to when exactly will the planned new vaccination sites be set up. No details yet as to where exactly will the five new vaccination sites be set up at. It would be nice, however, if all the five upcoming new vaccination sites will be established in airconditioned places so that it will be more comfortable for the patients, especially the senior citizens (and the less abled persons among them).

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: Are you a Las Piñas resident who is happy to learn that five brand new vaccination sites will be established within the city? If you were able to visit any of the vaccination sites located at the open-air, covered basketball courts in the city, was the venue comfortable enough?

Does this latest announcement from the City Government encourage you to get registered and line up for the free COVID-19 vaccine?
