The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of San Jose, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines

HISTORY ON THE CREATION OF BARANGAY SAN JOSE By Barangay SanJose on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at 6:30 PM

(Excerpt from the accounts of expert witnesses who were present and who have participated in the process of the creation of Barangay San Jose) - First Barrio Captain Rolando Basirgo, Public School Teacher Ms. Lilia C. Bontuyan, Lupon Coordinator Jesus Borces and Brgy Councilor Edgardo Borces.

BARRIO SAN JOSE, before its creation into a new barrio, was considerably a remote hilly terrain comprised by the five (5) sitios of Barrio Talamban, namely: 1) Sitio Panuayon, 2) Sitio Kapangi-an, 3) Sitio Kantumagsing, 4) Sitio Tigbao (Sun-ok) and 5) Sitio Bolho. A substantially populated community that is geographically situated on the outskirts of Barrio Talamban. Unfortunately, it has no roads , electricity and piped water system due to its a far-off location that can only be accessed through existing footpaths or carabao cart trails. The people communing in this area felt being neglected by the leadership and officials of it's original barrio (TALAMBAN) in terms of public services and facilities. The concentration of projects and developments like roads, thoroughfare, waterworks system and electricity were then only devoted on the "poblacion" plains of the Barrio Center. Sometime in 1971, Mrs. Lorenza Borces with her close friend and companion, Mrs. Melitona Colina, initiated the idea of consolidating the five (5) sitios to form into one barrio that is separate and distinct from that of Barrio Talamban under the following justifications;

To enable the new barrio to secure for itself new roads and other public service facilities, precisely for the progress and enhancements to the lives of it's constituents;
To secure distinct governmental budget appropriations for health services, education, as well as other economic incentives under the city-wide development plan of the Cebu City government.
To obtain faster development for basic needs such as public roads, electricity and water system.

These two proponents initiated the holding of the historical meeting among concerned constituents in a chapel at "Sitio Panuayon" that was owned by the late Agapita "Pitang" Tudtud-Catunggal and her family. The latter's husband Atty. Jose Catunggal was also present in that meeting. He later on became instrumental in the drafting of the initial documents that were submitted as primary documents in the application for the creation of a new barrio.

Aside from the direly needed public services and facilities, the proponents also discussed the need to do away with the unpleasant and weird-sounding nomenclatures of the component sitios and to adopt the proposed changes;

Sitio Tigbao (Sun-ok) to be renamed as Purok I
Sitio Panuayon to be renamed as Purok II
Sitio Kapangi-an to be renemaed as Purok III
Sitio Cantumagsing to be renamed as Purok IV
Sitio Bolho to be renamed as Purok V

They then proceeded to discussed about the name that the new barrio shall thenceforth be called and a quick suggestion that immediately met the approval and support of those who were present was that the new barrio shall be nominated as "Barrio San Jose".

This was easily pinpointed due to the unanimously felt need to devote the new barrio under the name of a Saint. It happened that one of the devotions practiced in that chapel wherein the first proponent's held their meeting is SENIOR SAN JOSE. Incidentally one of the well-respected lead personality in attendance during that meeting was a name-sake of the Patron Saint in the person of Atty. Jose Catunggal.

Thus the quorum decided via "Viva Voce" to call the new barrio as BARRI0 SAN JOSE and this became among others, as one of the proposals presented for adoption before the pre-listed COMELEC voters of that time. The signatures of voters were solicited to be affix opposite their respective names as listed on the "petition" that Atty. Catunggal drafted and submitted on November 4, 1971 for the creation of a new Barrio San Jose.

This said "petition" was then submitted to the City council of Cebu City, which under the sponsorship of the late Hon. Florencio Urot served as the main basis for City Ordinance No. 733. The said Ord. No. 733 was passed and thus confirmed the consolidation of the five (5) sitios and consequently legalized the creation and existence of the new BARRIO SAN JOSE that is separate and distinct from Barrio Talamban.

As a consequence for its creation, sometime on early months of 1972, a synchronized Barrio Election was mandated and was actually held. Several Public School Teachers were alternatively offered the task to chair the Board of Election Inspectors (BEI) but who declined for the simple reason that they were mostly constituents of Barrio Talamban and that they were also significantly affected by the creation of the new barrio. Finally, as an answered prayer of the proponents, the task was ultimately coursed through then Ms. LIlia Cogtas, a Talamban Elementary School Teacher who happened to have hailed from one of the sitios in the newly created barrio. The task was accepted and the Board of Election Tellers was appointed and constituted .

The composition of the Board of Election Tellers (BET) were as follows:

  1. Ms. Lilia Cogtas as the BET Chairperson;
  2. Mrs. Tomasa Nena Damaolao as the second member;
  3. Mr. Jesus C. Borces as the third member.

On January 5, 1972, the residents and officials of Barrio Talamban filed a case asking for issuance of a Restraining Order to prevent Barrio San Jose from holding their election on January 9, 1972. But Presiding Judge Francisco Tantuico denied their prayer.

The election was successfully held on January 9, 1972 with the three groups of registered political candidates for Barrio Captains with their respective line-up for Barrio councilmen were likewise certified.

First Group: led by Simplicio Tudtud of Sitio Panuayon for Captain with complete line-up of barrio council candidates.

Second Group: led by Leodigario Ferolino of Sitio Tigbao for Barrio Captain with complete line-up of Barrio Council Candidates.

Third Group: led by Rolando Basirgo of Sitio Bolho for Barrio Captain with complete line-up of Barrio council candidates.

As the barrio Election progressed, the BEI were threatened by Atty. Pedro C. Son of Barrio Talamban. He particularly pinpointed the then Chairperson of the BEI, Ms. Lilia Cogtas to answer for a lawsuit if the conduct of the election would proceed. Equipped with legitimate appointments from the Provincial Governor, the BEI nevertheless proceeded with the holding of the election until it was finished.

HON. ROLANDO BASIRGO won in that election and became the First Barrio Captain Elect.

The FIRST BARRIO COUNCILORS were elected in this particular order:

  1. Pascual Opigal - Bolho
  2. Eufemio Minoza - Tigbao
  3. Nicolas Borgonia - Tigbao
  4. Rogidilio Arinasa - Capangi-an
  5. Fructuso Seno - Bolho
  6. Robinson Minoza - Bolho
  • The First Appointed Barrio Secretary was Mrs. Lorenza Borces
  • The First Appointed Barrio Treasurer was Mrs. Tomasa Nena Damaolao

As the newly elected Officials of Barrio San Jose were sworn into office, the legal battle ensued. The elite leaders of Barrio Talamban made good of their threat. The Chairperson of the BEI, then Ms. Lilia Cogtas and the newly elected Barrio Officials were being sued.

The case for illegal conduct of election was docketed at Branch 14 RTC, Cebu City under the sala of the Hon. Judge Juan Y. Reyes. At this instance, it was the young Atty. Alvin Garcia of the Duterte Law Office, who happened to be a close friend of the appointed Barrio Secretary Mrs. Lorenza Borces, appeared as counsel in behalf of Barrio San Jose.

Correspondingly, City Council sessions were held wherein the elite personalities and leaders of Barrio Talamban appeared to voice out their opposition and thus presented their contention that the creation of Barrio San Jose under Ordinance NO. 733 should be declared null and void. They mainly alleged that the creation of the new barrio was without the knowledge and permission of the mother Barrio of Talamban.

Fortunately, a strong defence was put up by elected Barrio Capt. Rolando Basirgo with the assistance of the appointed Barrio Secretary Mrs. Lorenza Borces which built up an irrefutable proof on the legality of the creation of the new barrio. They produced the verified photo copies of the signed petition asking for the creation of Barrio San Jose wherein the number one petitioner that affixed his signature was the then Barrio Captain of Talamban Hon. Eleuterio Minoza. The signature of the Talamban Barrio Captain during that time was taken as an unquestionable consent of Barrio Talamban that favored for the creation of Barrio San Jose.

As a result, the Cebu City Council passed City Ordinance No. 813 which is an amendment on the City Ordinance No. 733, defining the boundaries of the newly create Barrio San Jose, in terms of jurisdiction of all the adjacent barrios as well as the boundary that separates between the mother Barrio Talamban and this barrio. A portion of Sitio Tigbao was reconstituted back to Barrio Talamban in consideration for the location of the residence of it's Barrio Captain, the then Hon. Eleuterio Minoza that was accordingly specified and defined.

The newly elected barrio council under the First Barrio Captain Rolando Basirgo continued to discharge their functions as officials of the newly created Barrio San Jose and regularly held their council sessions in the makeshift Barrio Hall at the lot donated by Mrs. Ana Borgonia-Borces in Purok 1 (Sun-ok), San Jose. But sometime in the year 1976, Capt. Rolando Basirgo could not carry anymore of his functions due to work and transfer of residence to a far away place, thus he entrusted his duties and responsibilities to the Barrio Secretary Lorenza Borces and authorize her to attend ABC meetings and follow-up projects in his behalf. The Barrio Council did the same by executing an affidavit to that effect. Barrio San Jose under the watch of Mrs. Lorenza Borces slowly transformed into a lively progressive place as some important infrastructure projects were put in like the electrification project to the entire barrio and the opening of farm to market road to Purok 5, (Bolho) all the way to Barrio Pulangbato. Through Mrs. Borces, many investors were also brought in to buy pieces of properties which was the key to the setting foot of many institutional facilities and subdivision projects like the Kauswagan Community Hospital, FSPIF, CITE, OAD, MLhuillier Properties, Maryville Subdivisions and many others.

On May 17, 1982, a Second Synchronized Barrio Election was conducted and the Election Tellers prepared the Minutes of the Election and Election Results. Barrio Secretary and Acting Barrio Captain Lorenza Borces was elected the second Barrio Captain of Barrio San Jose.

On March 15, 1986, Presiding Judge Juan Y. Reyes issued the decision in favor of the creation of Barrio San Jose and upholds the barrio as a "de facto" unit recognized by the new government.

On June 11, 1992, The Court of Appeals XIII Division before Associate Justices Justo P. Torres Jr., Arturo B. Buena and Pacita Canizares-Nye in its Case No. CA-G.R. No. 16391-CV rendered the decision affirming the March 15, 1986 Appealed Decision of the Regional Trial Court, and accordingly upholds that Ordinance No. 733 as amended by Ordinance No. 813 providing for the creation of Barrio San Jose is valid and binding, being within the power of the City Council of Cebu to enact.

AND THUS this narrative on the history of the creation of BARANGAY SAN JOSE which humbly remains amenable and receptive to any vital information that were missed out in this narrative.

All submissions/contributions of additional information regarding the creation of BARANGAY SAN JOSE shall be gladly accepted, recorded and collated. This material shall be subjected to a process of verification and confirmation and shall ultimately be incorporated in the historical account for the creation of our barangay.
