Calapan City Mayor Arnan Panaligan took a trip down memory lane 16 years ago when he became the governor of the Oriental Mindoro province.

Panaligan shared a photo of his oath taking as governor on December 1, 2004.

“16 years ago today, December 1, 2004, I took the oath as Governor of Oriental Mindoro when the incumbent governor, Bartolome Marasigan, died earlier that day,” said Panaligan.

“Judge Manuel Luna, Jr administered the oath while Board Member Dr. Romeo Infantado held the Bible as my father, Leandro Panaligan (between me and Board Member Infantado) and Board Member Ernesto Liwanag (in red shirt) witnessed the occasion,” he added.

Also present during the oath taking was the provincial police director. The oath taking was held at the residence of Judge Luna.

Panaligan would then serve another term as governor of the province until he ran again as Mayor of Calapan in 2013.

Panaligan is currently serving his last and third term in office.
