RAMON G. LACBAIN 11: HARDWORKING VICE GOVERNOR OF ZAMBALES
Olongapo City, Philippines
Ramon G. Lacbain 11 of Subic, Zambales had entered the arena of politics in the province as a young man. First elected as Member of the Provincial Board and hanged on for three terms then, Vice Governor for two terms including the present. This writer had an earlier encounter with him when he was an officer of the defunct Reserve Officers Training Course (ROTC) and then, were together as mentors at Mondriaan Aura College during the 90s. The young leader then, did not know about the ROTC encounter with this writer.
Professor Ramon G. Lacbain 11, had imprinted his good name and untainted reputation as a politician in the minds and hearts of the people of Zambales which makes him return every now and then. He is a “returnee vice-governor for the second time” at the present administration of a Governor Hermogenes E. Ebdane, Jr., a none traditional politician (notrapo).
Honorable Ramon G. Lacbain is a hard working vice governor. Despite of his heavily loaded desk as presiding officer of the Provincial Board, he finds time to do and attend to other community service oriented activities. The latest of such activity initiated and spearheaded by the good vice governor was the “FIRST MEDICAL-DENTAL & FEEDING PROJECT” on April 02, 2011 in Barangay Omaya, San Narciso, Zambales. The community of Omaya is described as the remotest hence, the project was not only highly desired but, it was very necessary. See Table 1 below.
