Gov Bong Lacson, Vice Governor Jeffrey Ferrer, Sangguniang Panlalawigan Members, and Capitol employees paid tribute to former governor, Alfredo Marañon, Jr. at rites held in front of the Provincial Capitol in Bacolod City, Friday.

Gov Bong said that the former governor was among the keenest political minds of the province. He said that he considers it a privilege to have worked with him for six years as vice governor, and he learned a lot from him.“The people of Negros Occidental share the grief of his demise, and will always remain grateful for his devotion to service and his commitment to the advancement of Negros Occidental,” he added.
