IC Calaguas: The Chief Legacy

In the arena of political strategy, Chief Adviser and Tactician IC Calaguas stands unrivaled, commanding unparalleled respect and admiration. Her profound impact and strategic brilliance set her apart in a league as a true leader among us. Her vast influence, generosity, hands-on approach, and multifaceted roles as a public servant, brand ambassador, media icon, animals rights advocate, and community organizer have left an indelible mark on all who have had the privilege to work alongside her.

IC, or as I fondly call her, ‘my Boss Chief,’ embodies the essence of a masterful political strategist. Her pivotal role in the acclaimed governance, marked by numerous awards, has set the stage for a promising house bid in Pampanga’s premier district following the two successful terms of Angeles City Mayor Carmelo ‘Pogi’ Lazatin Jr.

Her keen insight and strategic mind have guided many through the intricate maze of political landscapes. She possesses an uncanny ability to anticipate challenges and devise solutions that not only address immediate issues but also pave the way for sustainable success.

Generosity is a hallmark of IC’s character. Her contributions extend far beyond her professional endeavors; she is a benefactor whose impact resonates within us. Her willingness to share her resources, knowledge, and time has fostered growth and development in countless organizations and individuals, including this writer and my family.

Upon the assumption of Mayor Cong Pogi into office in 2019, IC’s invaluable assistance led to the release of my terminal leave credits as a former city employee from 2007-2010, which had been on hold for nine years, testifying to her kindness and impartiality. At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, she also helped us access vaccines, further showcasing her compassionate nature. She was equally thoughtful during Father’s Day, birthdays, and Christmas holidays.

IC’s hands-on approach sets her apart. She is not one to delegate from a distance; instead, she immerses herself in the work, leading by example. Whether coordinating events, managing crises, or engaging with stakeholders, her vibrant presence is felt, and her influence is transformative.

An organizer par excellence, she has the ability to bring people together and orchestrate successful initiatives is unparalleled. Her meticulous planning, attention to detail, and ability to inspire collaboration have resulted in numerous achievements that stand as testaments to her capabilities. Include the recent grand and historical declaration of Cong Pogi in his house bid, which drew thousands of attendees from provincial to barangay officials, sectoral leaders, and former barangay officials from Pampanga’s First District.

As a media icon, IC’s commitment to truth and integrity has been unwavering. Her journalistic endeavors have always aimed to inform, educate, and empower the public. Her dedication to delivering accurate and unbiased news has earned her the respect and trust of many.

She works hand in hand with the magnanimous Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel, ACEDIPO Irish Bonus-Llego, GAD Officer Mina Cabiles, ACTO Head Anneleen Antonio, senior staff Jane Calimquim and Mike Lising forming a formidable team that has created a lasting impact on the betterment of the city.
As Mayor Pogi moves to Congress, IC’s role becomes crucial. Her strategic acumen and political foresight, proven during the late Carmelo “Tarzan” Lazatin’s term, will be essential in navigating national legislation.

Together, Cong Pogi and IC will drive positive change, advocating for policies benefiting Angeles City, Pampanga’s First District, and the entire nation.

The next chapter in Cong Pogi’s career will be marked by success, fueled by IC’s unwavering support and expertise. Her dedication and diverse skills will ensure impactful legislation and meaningful progress. IC is not just a political strategist, brand ambassador, media icon, and organizer; she is a beacon of dedication, integrity, and generosity.

Her legacy will continue to inspire and guide us, reminding us that within each of us lies the potential to make a difference, just as my Boss Chief IC has done throughout her illustrious career. When I joked, “Don’t leave us behind,” she replied with a warm laugh and said, “NEVER!!!”
