About Gregorio Balid Veluz
Gregorio Veluz was appointed Councilor of Quezon City in 1954 by President Magsaysay. His term lasted for 6 years; all of which he was awarded Most Outstanding Alderman. Gregorio’s role in politics became more prominent than ever as he became the campaign manager of the Nacionalista Party. As Councilor of Quezon City, he saw to it that schools be erected so that all children may become educated. Due to his dedication, the Pura V. Kalaw Elementary School in Project 4 and the Quirino Public High School in Project 3 were established. He also made sure that a quality city hospital was nearby — thus, the development of the Quirino Memorial Hospital along Katipunan Avenue. Gregorio was also instrumental in the development of the Araneta Center in Cubao.
