Check out this rare old photo of three former leaders in Northern Mindanao taken in one setting. They are (from left): the late former Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Pedro N. Roa, the late former Bukidnon Governor Carlos O. Fortich and the late former Vice President Emmanuel N. Pelaez.
Photo was taken at St. Augustine Cathedral where they acted as sponsors at a wedding. The fourth person at right was the late Virgilio Neri, a respected businessman who had a street in Carmen named after him. Photo was probably in the late 70s between 1978-1980 when Roa was City Mayor. At that time, Fortich was Governor of Bukidnon while Pelaez was an Assemblyman representing Misamis Oriental.
