The retired Major General turned 72 this year!
Along with her Sunday reflection, Davao City Mayor Beng Climaco shared how their family celebrated the birthday of her husband Trifonio (or “TP” as she fondly calls him). Due to the pandemic, their usual celebration turned to greetings over the phone and plans to see each other hopefully by Christmas.
Even with an 18-year age gap, the couple got married on February 28, 2009 – the date coinciding with the birthday of the Politiko’s late uncle, Cesar Climaco, to honor his influence in her life.
Mayor Beng Climaco is now on her third and last term as mayor of Zamboanga City. Her husband Trifonio Salazar was the Commander of the 1st Infantry Division based in Jolo, Sulu from 2004 to 2006, and later on became the new chief of the Philippine National Intelligence Coordinating Agency in 2010.
