Engr. Eliseo G. Lagman took his oath of office as a full-fledged new member of the Baguio Water District Board of Directors before Mayor Benjamin B. Magalong in a simple ceremonial rite in the
presence of the District’s top level Management at the BWD Office on January 12, 2023. Engr. Lagman will represent the Professional Sector, the same sector which the late Director and his father, Engr. Felino D. Lagman, represented prior to his untimely demise mid- October 2022.

The younger Lagman took a hint of the vested duties upon making his entry two months prior in an acting capacity, taking over the remaining term of Engr. Felino. Engr. Eli was nominated by the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers, Inc. (Baguio-Benguet chapter) and was appointed by Mayor
Benjamin B. Magalong through a confirmation letter dated 15 December 2022.

He is due to serve his six (6) years term as a BOD for the Summer Capital’s lone public water utility from 01 January 2023 until 31 December 2028. Engr. Lagman will be amongst three of the fresh
professional talents to join the BWD Directors chosen under the term of Mayor Magalong, following the appointment of Directors Jonathan A. Vergara and Kenneth S. So in 2021 who filled the sectors left vacant due to the expiration of the terms of Dr. Joanne J. Balderas and hotelier Peter L. Ng on December 31, 2020.

“You do not owe this position to me nor to anyone as you were chosen because of your qualifications and capabilities as a representative of your sector.” Mayor Magalong clearly stated prior to reciting the oath of office to Engr. Lagman. BWD General Manager, Engr. Salvador M. Royeca, on the other hand, welcomed the new Director banking on the knowledge, experience, and
expertise in his respective field which can deliver a significant contribution to the continued
improvement and development of the Baguio Water District.
