‘Provincial historical officer’ proposed in Bukidnon

MALAYBALAY CITY –  The Bukidnon Provincial Board has passed a resolution Thursday proposing the creation of the position of a provincial historical officer to pull together Bukidnon’s history, lead the creation of a provincial library, and propose ways to honor past leaders.

The resolution urged the provincial governor to hire a provincial historical officer using general funds.

The officer is tasked to collate and annotate the history of the province, including its towns and cities and to recommend the construction of a provincial library. The proposed officer will also be assigned as the head of the proposed provincial library.

In his explanatory note, proponent board member Nemesio Beltran Jr, said it is important for the people of Bukidnon and for the next generations to know their past, including their past leaders.

The new officer will also be tasked to study the feasibility and possibility of constructing monuments for all the departed governors and vice governors, and recommend where the monuments will be erected, including budgetary requirements.

Beltran, a son of a vice governor who later assumed as governor, also proposed the giving of appropriate memorabilia to the family of the governor and vice governor honored.

The historical officer will also become a protocol officer to arrange necrological services in behalf of the Provincial Government of Bukidnon and do other functions as may be instructed by the governor.

The resolution was passed following the death on July 27 of World War II veteran and local hero Esmeraldo Cudal, who was a survivor of the Bataan death march. He was elected vice governor March 1980 to April 1986. (Walter I. Balane)
