Governor Francis “Chiz” Escudero and National Historical Commission of the Philippines chair Rene Escalante led the unveiling of the bust of former Sorsogon governor Salvador C. Escudero, Sr.

In his speech, Gov. Chiz highlighted the importance of recognizing the history and learning from it in order not to repeat the mistakes of the past.

“Para sa gobernador, kapupulutan ito ng aral upang hindi na muling ulitin ang mga pagkakamali ng nakaraan,” the provincial government said.

“Sa kanyang talumpati, ipinaliwanag naman ni Escalante ang konteksto ng pagtitipon at kahalagahan ng historical marker. Ibinahagi rin niya ang mga aral mula sa Ikalawang Digmaang Pandaigdig at sa naging buhay ni Escudero Sr,” it added.

Present during the activity were Bishop Alan Dialogo, Rep. Ditas Ramos, PCol Bargamento, PCol Bausa, and Sorsogon first lady Heart Evangelista Escudero.

“Dumalo rin ang mga opisyales ng Panlalawigang Pamahalaan ng Sorsogon, mga lokal na pamahalaan, at mga unipormadong lingkod-bayan mula sa Philippine National Police at Philippine Army,” the Capitol said.
