Ormoc City Mayor Lucy Torres-Gomez Joins the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary

The Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary just named its newest member, AUX COMMO LUCY TORRES-GOMEZ PCGA.

The Ormoc City mayor’s oath-taking ceremony in the city was led by coast guard commandant Admiral Artemio Abu last Friday, October 7. According to the admiral, the honorary rank of auxiliary commodore signifies the mayor’s responsibility to “uphold peace on the coast, as well as on land.”

Her husband, Leyte Fourth District Rep. Richard Gomez, participated in the ceremony with Auxiliary Captain Diether Ocampo, who is also an active PCGA member.

Mayor Torres-Gomez also reportedly expressed her “utmost gratitude” for the faithful service of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) to Ormoc City in her speech and its continued support of local government programs and policies.
