Acting Governor Victor Balite guided the members of the LVGP led by national president Laguna Vice Governor Katherine Agapay who went around the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Offices. Balite also showed them some of the historical and cultural features of the Provincial Capitol building, which was constructed in 1855 to serve as a tribunal, prison and military quarters for the Spanish colonial government.
