San Jose is located at the northern part of Cebu City around 14 kms from the Cebu City Hall. It is bounded by Barangay Talamban at the south, Barangay Bacayan and Butuanon River at the East, Barangay Pulangbato at the North and Barangay Budla-an at the West. It has around 300 has jurisdictional lot area and composed mostly of mountainous and hilly terrain.

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:
- Ms. Lilia Cogtas as the BET Chairperson;
- Mrs. Tomasa Nena Damaolao as the second member;
- 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:
- Pascual Opigal - Bolho
- Eufemio Minoza - Tigbao
- Nicolas Borgonia - Tigbao
- Rogidilio Arinasa - Capangi-an
- Fructuso Seno - Bolho
- 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.

San Jose chief still richest barangay captain in Cebu City
Thursday, June 11, 2009
By Rene H. Martel
SAN Jose’s neophyte village chief is the richest Cebu City barangay captain for the second straight year.
From a net of P17 million last year, Barangay Captain Merinisa Arinasa’s statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN) this year showed an increase of around P3 million.
She listed her real properties as totaling P17.15 million, which include inherited agricultural land, house and lot, three residential lots, and a piece of property in Tabuelan town.
She owed banks P3.06 million but has P6.44 million in personal and other properties, which included four vehicles and heavy equipment–two backhoes, three dumptrucks, two mini-trucks, and a payloader that were all bought in 2008.
The Arinasas are into construction and sand and gravel extraction.
In an interview last year when Sun.Star Cebu published a feature of her, Arinasa, now 55, said her properties, which she said were acquired through “guts, risks, and honesty,” are all declared in her SALN.
Next to Arinasa in terms of net worth is Inayawan Barangay Captain Rustico Ignacio, who said in his SALN that he is worth P15.085 million and without any liabilities.
He indicated exactly the same amount in his SALN last year.
Ignacio, who is into the scrap-buying business, among other ventures, owns land and buildings in Inayawan, Poblacion Pardo, Tejero, T. Padilla in Cebu City; Lapu-Lapu City; and in Olango Island.
The third richest Cebu City Barangay Captain is Domingo Lopez of Tinago, who has P14.745 million worth of properties, including land along M. J. Cuenco Ave. and Barangay Bacayan in Cebu City, Sogod town, Talisay City, and Masbate province totaling P11.1 million. He also has three vehicles worth P3.645 million.
Guadalupe Barangay Captain Eugenio Faelnar is the fourth richest, with P12.608 million worth of jewelry, five residences, three vehicles, and cash in the bank. He, however, has liabilities of P600,000.
Next to Faelnar is Day-as Barangay Captain Rey Cañada, who has P10.48 million in assets and P100,000 in liabilities.
Cañada reported inherited residential and agricultural lots totaling P4.8 million and P10.48 million worth of personal properties, which include audio equipment and three vehicles.
Rounding up the top 10 are Quiot’ Vicente Ramos (P9.07 million, with P350,000 in liabilities), Tejero’s Jessielou Cadungog (P8.2 million, with P80,000 in liabilities), Buhisan’s Rustica Asid (P6.141 million), Sambag I’s Jerry Guardo (P6.42 million, with P400,000 in liabilities), and Banilad’s Mary Luz Tabar (P5.497 million).
Like Ignacio, Asid declared total assets exactly like what she indicated in her 2008 SALN.
Excluding Faelnar, Ramos, Guardo, and Asid, all the 10 richest barangay captains of Cebu City are first-timers in their job.
The list did not take into account Talamban Barangay Captain Alvin Arcilla’s assets, who has personal and other properties worth P820,000.
While he indicated real properties in his SALN, the value of a house and lot each in Talamban and in Barangay Pit-os; an Internet café; a lot each in Sitio Tag-ube and in Barangay Pit-os; and a factory in Tawason, were not indicated.
On the other hand, Sta. Cruz’s Jerome Lim replaced Guba’s Renerio Limotan as the poorest barangay captain.
Limotan, who declared his wristwatch worth P2,200 and a class ring worth P4,000 as his only assets last year, now has P34,700 in personal and other properties. He, however, said he has a P60,000 loan with the Cebu CFI Cooperative.
Lim, who reported P36,000 worth of personal and other properties, has a P150,000 loan with the CFI.
Parian Barangay Captain Mark Balaga, single, has the lowest assets with just P21,000 in personal properties.
He only owns a cellphone worth P9,000; watch, P3,000; and an airconditioning unit worth P21,000, and owed the CFI P100,000 in loans.
The SALN is a financial statement that public officials are required to submit to the Office of the Ombudsman every year.
Republic Act 6713, or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees, requires them to submit a declaration, under oath, of their assets, liabilities, net worth and financial and business interests.
They are also mandated to declare the assets of spouses and unmarried children under 18 years old who are living with the family. The names of relatives working in the government should also appear in their SALNs.
The SALN helps the anti-graft office keep track of any drastic change in the net worth of public officials or unexplained wealth.
Many “lifestyle checks” begin when questions are raised about SALN reports.
