Albert S. Garcia is the incumbent Governor of the province of Bataan.
The eldest son of former Governor, now 2nd District Congressman Enrique “Tet” Garcia, Gov. “Abet” has been exposed at a very early age to the rigors of political life.
In 1998, at the age of 28, “Abet” decided to try his own hand in politics by joining the Balanga, Bataan mayoralty race. Winning the said elections, he became the youngest mayor ever to be elected in the history of Balanga. Within two years as municipal mayor he was able to work out the conversion of the once sleepy town into a component city of Bataan making him the First City Mayor of Balanga City. He sought re-election in the May 2001 elections which he won easily without any opposition.
In 2004, he succeeded his father as representative of the 2nd district for three (3) consecutive terms. Due to his dynamism and political savvy, he garnered a coveted post in the House of Representatives.
