About Celso L. Lobregat
Celso L. Lobregat grew up in Manila. He visited Zamboanga City when school was out then he was back to Manila. After he graduated college and finished his master's degree, that is when he decided to give Zamboanga City a try. He lived in Zamboanga City for awhile after his graduation and worked in their family business. Moved back to Manila and married his wife Nona Panlilio. He started his family there and had 3 children.
When his mother, Maria Clara Lorenzo Lobregat followed the footsteps of her father and got into politics as early as 1971 and then won the election as congresswoman of Zamboanga City in 1987, Celso knew that he too would be in politics. In the late 1980's Celso would be in Zamboanga more often. Through politics and the determination to help Zamboanga City grow and be better, Celso decided to stay in Zamboanga City and make it his home. He lived in Zamboanga City and his wife and children lived in Manila.
For the love of his mother and deep desire for public service, Celso made Zamboanga City his home and lived in their ancestral house located at 15 Nuñez St., Zamboanga City. Celso Lobregat has accomplished more and has done more for Zamboanga City in less than 25 years what other native zamboanguenio politicians have tried all their lives.
- As a politician Celso served Zamboanga City as:
- Congressman of Zamboanga City Lone district 1998-2004
- Elected Mayor of Zamboanga City - 2004-2007
- Elected Mayor of Zamboanga City - 2007-2010
- Elected Mayor of Zamboanga City - 2010-2013
- Congressman of Zamboanga City District I - 2013-2016, 2016-2019
What does the future hold for Celso Lobregat? By the end of his term as mayor in 2013 he will not be able to run for re-election. He has already served as mayor for 3 terms. Many are speculating that he should run for Senate. Zamboanga City is in dire need for a senator. Celso has the qualification. Does he have the political clout or financial backup to run as a senator? He certainly does.
The only senator that came from Zamboanga City was Roseller T. Lim and that was back in the 50's. It's about time that the City of Flowers, The Asian Latin City, El Orgullo de Mindanao has a new senator. That senator should be Celso L. Lobregat.
Since Celso Lobregat has served his last term as Mayor of Zamboanga City, he can't run for re-election. However, he wants to stay in politics so Celso has filed for his certificate of candidacy as the congressman for district one for the election year of 2013.
He won the election of 2013 for the term of 2013-2016 as Representative of District I.

Zambo extends P10M aid to calamity areas in Luzon

As a show of concern and compassion to the suffering brethren in Luzon, Zamboanga City has extended a P10 million assistance to 19 municipalities in Metro Manila and the neighboring areas affected by torrential rains and flooding early this month.
Mayor Celso Lobregat and some members of the City Council flew to Manila August 16 to personally turn over the city’s financial assistance to victims of the severe flooding through the mayors of affected local government units.
The turnover of checks was done in the presence of Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo [before the unfortunate plane crash] at his office in Edsa, Manila.
The P10 million donation was taken from the City’s Calamity fund and was approved for release during a meeting of the Lobregat-led City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (CDRRMC) in City Hall August 10.
Of the amount, P1 million was donated to San Mateo, Rizal through Mayor Jose Rodriguez. San Mateo is a sister town of Zamboanga City. The P9 million was shared among 18 other flood-stricken municipalities at P500,000 each.
These municipalities include Masantol, Macabebe, Calumpit, Paombong, Hagonoy, Obando and Bucaue, all in the province of Bulacan; Concepcion, Paniqui and Capas in Tarlac Province; Dinalupihan, Orani and Mariveles in Bataan; Sto. Tomas and Minalin in Pampanga; San Marcelino and Iba in the province of Zambales.
Together with Mayor Lobregat during the turnover were Councilors Rudy Lim, Myra Paz Abubakar, Rey Candido, Percival Ramos, Eddie Saavedra, NOnong Guingona and City Social Welfare and Development Officer Francisco Barredo.
During its session early this month, the City Council approved a resolution authorizing Mayor Lobregat to do whatever is necessary with regard to the massive calamity that hit Luzon.
Mayor Lobregat said the city’s donation is a way of showing sympathy and concern for fellow Filipinos in Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon. The amount, he said, will help alleviate the plight of the affected families.
Almost a hundred people were killed while 3.45 million others were affected by the heavy rains and flooding caused by southwest monsoon rains or habagat in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.
The recipient chief executives and representatives expressed all out gratitude to the city of Zamboanga for the donation stressing that it will go a long way in alleviating the lives of their displaced constituents. (Sheila Covarrubias)
