RICHARD GOMEZ RUNNING FOR CONGRESSMAN IN THE 4TH DISTRICT OF LEYTE



Richard Gomez, a Filipino actor and model, filed his certificate of candidacy on December 1, 2009 at the local office of Commission on Elections in Leyte.

He formally launched his bid to grab the congressional seat in the 4th district of Leyte under the Liberal Party. I think Goma, as he is known to many, is the second TV personality who is running for an elective position in my province. Cristina "Kring-Kring" Gonzales-Romualdez is running again as a councilor in the City of Tacloban.

Gomez is not a native of Ormoc. He is not a Waray nor a Cebuano (or Bisaya). His wife, Lucy Torres-Gomez, is. In fact, there is a pending disqualification case before COMELEC against him because the petetioner argues that he is not a resident of Ormoc City. If he wins, will he stay in Ormoc City to take care of his constituents' needs and help them as much as he can? Otherwise, his efforts will be in vain. Well, let the people of the 4th district of Leyte decide whom to vote.

His opponent would be Eufrocino "Dodong" Codilla, under the ruling Lakas-Kampi-CMD, who is a well-known politician in Ormoc City.

The 4th district of Leyte is composed of Ormoc City and six (6) municipalities, namely, Albuera, Isabel, Kananga, Matag-ob, Merida, and Palompon. As of August 1, 2007 its population is 398,908.
