This is false.
An LGU building in La Trinidad has an elevator from much earlier.
As early as 2016, the Senior Citizen Multipurpose Building in La Trinidad, Benguet had an elevator to cater to the senior citizens utilizing the building.
The building, started during the administration of Artemio Galwan, former La Trinidad mayor, which was completed and opened for use in 2016, during the term of Edna Tabanda as mayor of La Trinidad.
