He later became the Governor of the Nueva Ecija Province in the Philippines from 1959 to 1992, making him the longest serving politician serving one government position in the Philippines.

World War II

Joson was the captain of Squadron 213 of the guerrilla fighters in the Philippines. Along with Captain Juan Pajota, he led the Philippine guerillas during the Raid at Cabanatuan, the largest rescue of prisoners of war in US military history.

After the war, Joson took part in helping rebuild the infrastructure of the Philippines. He was subsequently elected as the Governor of Nueva Ecija, the same province in which the raid took place. He served from 1959 to 1992. Joson conceived the idea of a capitol building in Palayan City which was finally established and opened on January 25, 2002 by his son, Tomas N. Joson III who also became the governor of the province. On August 5, 2004, a hospital was dedicated in his honor and college was also named after him.
