The LGU-Tiwi in Brief

Tiwi, the Philippines' richest source of geothermal energy, began as a barrio of Malinao before it was formally organized as a politically independent pueblo in 1696. In the extant records of the municipality, the first chief executive of the municipal government was Don Lorenzo Mancilla installed in 1776. The present municipal building was built during the incumbency of Mayor Maximino Cruel in 1919. It was renovated during the term of Mayor Naomi Corral in 1990.

Currently, the municipal government of Tiwi is administered by Hon. Mayor Patria C. Gutierrez. Her stint in the UN as chairperson of International Union of Local Authorities (IULA) Task Force for Women in Local Governance, has gained for Tiwi a remarkable distinction in the area of women empowerment.
