Gualberto, BTC Chairperson said. “Those who don’t drink were also there to enjoy the night with the great music provided by the Edralins and the Baggak Band and be with their friends.

The Simple Bauangeno: Mayor Eulogio Clarence Martin P. De Guzman III

When being Mayor is just a job

We met at Barangay Dili, Bauang, because Mayor De Guzman, or Mayor Martin, was on his routine barangay meet-and-greet. I was told that he made sure he was constantly immersing with his constituents, and met with all the barangay officials at least once a month. And then I knew I was going to interview someone extraordinary.
Mayor De Guzman was born into a political family. Being a fourth generation politician in a long line of politicians in La Union, he is very familiar with political life. However, he didn’t really plan on entering the political arena at first. He was in the US, a practicing licensed accountant, when his father was afflicted with cancer. He then had to come home and it was then when the question was posed on him. He refused the offer and went back to the States, and as fate had it, went back to La Union to pursue a life in governance. He became mayor of Bauang, then became vice governor of La Union, sat in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan for two terms, and then back to the mayoral seat. He is now on his second term as mayor.

“If you’re vice governor, the work is legislative. But when you’re a mayor, the work is more administrative.” He explained that the work as mayor is more challenging because as an administrator, he implements what is legislated, and deals with issues on a day-to-day basis. He added, “sometimes, I also act as a legislator because with whatever action I want to do, I will have to consult the Sangguniang Bayan.”

Particularly in addressing the issues of Bauang tourism, he admitted that the task is “very challenging.” He went into politics when Bauang tourism was in a slump, as tourist’s attention was more focused in places like Boracay.
