HONEST CITIZENS -- Baguio officials honored yet another batch of honest citizens, cab driver Juanito Pacho (center) and Dominic Naulgan (2nd from right), for their honesty when they  returned huge cash to their rightful owners. -- Bong Cayabyab



The city government recognized two honest citizens of Baguio who returned valuable items to their owners during Monday’s flag raising ceremony at the City Hall grounds. 

The city council recently passed resolutions numbered 119 and 120 commending Juanito Tacio and Dominic Naulgan for their display of honesty.

Tacio, a taxi driver returned valuables worth P48,000, passport with re-entry visa and important documents.

Despite the adversity of life, it never entered Tacio’s mind to take advantage of the circumstances. “Kahit na mahirap ang buhay, kailanman ay hindi sumagi sa isipan ko na kunin ang pera dahil alam kong may nagmamay-ari nito,” said Tacio.

“The noble deed of Pacio serves as an inspiration to other taxi drivers as well as the constituents of the city of Baguio to practice honesty and trustworthiness,” reads the resolution commending the cab driver.

Naulgan, a resident of Sto. Rosario Valley, has displayed honesty by returning the wallet of Zandro Atanacio.

Atanacio, a former employee of the city government is presently employed at the Office of the Solicitor General in Makati City. He lost his wallet containing cash, identification cards and important receipts. He lost his wallet upon arrival in Baguio for a vacation with his family on March 18.

“The good man, Naulgan prevailed over material need considering his economic status and such act of honesty in the midst of economic difficulties is worthy of emulation,” reads the resolution commending him.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan expressed appreciation to Tacio and Naulgan.

“May your display of honesty be an inspiration to every Baguio citizen.

Honest citizens previously awarded by the city government received not just plaques of commendation.

Taxi driver Reggie Cabututan was granted a scholarship worth P220,000 and a possible starting basic salary up to P1.7 million a month as his reward.

Cabututan, who drives the Dustin Brant Taxi owned by an operator from Philex Mines, Tuba, Benguet, returned the luggage left inside his taxi on Jan. 21 by Trent Shields, an Australian business executive. The luggage contains huge cash, valuable items and the passport of Shields, one of the executives of Australian-based Coder Factory company, who came to Baguio for a business trip.

In 2010, the Peoples Against Trade-Abuse & Scams Inc., a non-government organization based in Quezon City, said it was impressed by common feedbacks from travelers and visitors that Baguio is one if not the most highly-urbanized city with most number of honest taxi drivers.
