The actor-turned-politician even revealed that Carmelo Locsin, Sr. will be the running mate of Congresswoman Lucy. Incumbent city vice mayor Toto Locsin, Jr., for his part, will enter the council race.

The lady solon already hinted at the political plans of the Ormoc Development Team during a public engagement in October. Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez, previously, stated that she and Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez will be switching posts in the upcoming elections.

No other details have been made public as of yet. However, should Congresswoman Lucy be elected as Ormoc City mayor, she is expected to continue the projects and programs of the current administration come 2022.

In July, the Gomez couple enjoyed comfortable leads against the Codillas. Congresswoman Lucy won against her opponent Eufrocino “Winnie” Codilla Jr. with a total of 177, 938 votes. Richard Gomez, on the other hand, assumed his second term as Ormoc City mayor after surpassing Engr. Eric “Beboy” Codilla with a whooping 77,537 votes.

“The very same kind of work that they have seen for the past several years that I have been their representative,” the lady solon told Rappler when asked about her plans for the 4th District of Leyte in the next three years.
