Maximino Jaen Noel
(29-May-1879 – 6-Jul-1969)
Son of Florencio Noel and Filomena Jaen;
Politician; with Troadio Galicano, Vicente Urgello and Primitivo Sato, the only Carcaranons to sit in the National Legislature;
Replaced his older brother Mariano as Presidente Municipal 1916 for two terms until 1922; became congressman 3d District of Cebu until 1966; led pro-Osmeña family in political uphill battle against the alliance of Cuenco and Vicente Rama (district) and Mariano Mercado in Carcar, disadvantaged by Rama’s owning a newspaper, Bag-ong Kusog; only the fusion of Osmeña and Cuenco forces provided a truce on anti-Noel propaganda but which was already somewhat ingrained in Carcar consciousness; on the other hand, as politics go, the other half of Carcar did not believe a single word.
Married to Lucila Florido Cuico with 4 children.
Brothers Mateo, Vicente (mayor 1906-10), Maximino (mayor 1916-22), and Mariano Noel (mayor 1910-16, 1922-29)
