Here’s how Bert Romulo traces his roots to Valenzuela’s founder


The former senator became part of Valenzuela’s ceremony last Wednesday.

Mayor Rexlon Gatchalian welcomed former Senator Alberto Romulo and his wife, Lovely, for the wreath-laying ceremony in honor of Dr. Pio Valenzuela, who is marking his 150th birth anniversary.

Why, you ask? Apparently, Mrs. Romulo is a granddaughter of the city’s icon. Her full name is Lovely Valenzuela Tecson-Romulo.

She is a living link to history.
