Vice Mayor Lazatin eyes renaming of street in honor of Kapampangan heroine
San Fernando City Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin wants to rename a downtown street in honor of a Kapampangan heroine Nicolasa Dayrit-Panlilio.
The local heroine and women’s icon nursed sick and wounded Filipino soldiers who fought against Americans.
The Pampanga politiko said he will push for the renaming of V. Tiomico Street after Panlilio to recognize her heroism.
Panlilio’s remains are interred at the Hizon-Henson house, her family’s ancestral home, along V. Tiomico Street.
“Looking into the contributions of Nicolasa Dayrit to the country’s history, and of course the significance of this road to her which houses her ancestral home, I just thought that it might be more appropriate to name it after her. But of course, this is with all due respect to Vicente Tiomico who was an appointed mayor of the city for one year and has his own share in the city’s history,” Lazatin explained.
