Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez turned emotional while giving his speech during the Tatak Ormoc 2018 Consumers Choice Award on Saturday, June 22, at Sabin Resort Hotel.
In his message, the dynamic father of #theCityOfBeautifulPeople said being the highest-ranking government official here is no easy because he had to live away from his wife, 4th District of Leyte Representative Lucy Marie Torres-Gomez, and daughter, Juliana.
Despite this, Mayor Richard continues to work hard to make Ormoc a better city for all Ormocanons. Though being miles apart from his loved ones can be, at times, frustrating, the actor-politician said he is pleased that the people here are very cooperative.
“I want a beautiful city. I want Ormoc to be progressive. I want all of us to be happy. Ang layo na ng inabot natin from where we are when we started it 2016,” Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez revealed. “It’s hard to be a Mayor but when I’m with Lucy, I’m very happy at sometimes kaming dalawa lang, but I think of my daughter. It is hard because I live here (Ormoc) alone.”
“My family is in Manila, Juliana and Lucy. But I’m very happy because all of you are very cooperative,” Mayor Richard added. Thank you so much.”
