His legislative track record and service mainly focused on the protection and preservation of the environment and public’s safety and welfare;

WHEREAS, known for his principles and passion as a public servant, he is also an active church worker who serves as a lay minister at the San Roque Chapel, Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

WHEREAS, believing that a councilor’s duties and responsibilities go beyond the confines of the legislative halls, Councilor Cortez, Jr., is one of the city officials who have done remarkable services in terms of giving rescue, response and relief in times of calamities to the Olongapeños. 

Con’t. of Resolution No. 73, Series of 2016.

WHEREAS, the Sangguniang Panlungsod recognizes his significant efforts and contributions to the welfare of the City of Olongapo and gives a heart-warming welcome as the newly elected City Vice Mayor that will lead the office in its new legislative endeavours;

NOW, THEREFORE, with the unanimous accord of the Members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod present;

RESOLVED, AS IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED, by the Sangguniang Panlungsod in session assembled, to commend, as it hereby commends outgoing City Councilor Aquilino Y. Cortez Jr. for his invaluable contributions as a public official and a three-termer City Councilor of Olongapo for CY 2007-2016.
