The Honorable Albert Raymond S. Garcia is the incumbent Representative of the 2nd Congressional District of Bataan. The eldest son of the late Enrique “Tet” Garcia who also served as Governor and Representative of the 2nd District of the province, Cong. “Abet” has been exposed to the rigors of political life at a very early age.
Long before he became the Representative of the 2nd District of Bataan, he already held firmly to the belief that Bataan could stride its economic growth and provide its citizens a better if not the best quality of life if it becomes the preferred location of eco-industrial investments.
He started to take the challenging prerequisites of this vision by entering the political arena and public service at a very young age. At 28, he proved to everyone his political maturity and genuine public service that he won all of his races, some of which were unopposed.
His victory in the 1998 Balanga mayoralty race made him 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.
In 2004, he reached the next ladder of his political career as Representative of the 2nd District of Bataan, serving for three (3) consecutive terms.
When he assumed the gubernatorial post in 2013, the province adopted the vision that by 2020, Bataan will have the lowest poverty incidence resulting from quality growth attaining top level human development index in the Philippines.
Returning to Congress, he was appointed as member of the influential Commission on Appointments (CA). Armed with decades of public service, Congressman Garcia seeks to push for meaningful legislation that will benefit not only Bataeños, but every Filipino as well.
