‘Di epalitiko! Rico Golez refuses to take credit for gym repair


Unlike other politikos who want their names on every government project, Paranaque City Vice Mayor Rico Golez is perfectly happy to serve his constituents without fanfare.

In a Facebook post, Golez shared how residents of Classic Homes Village thanked him for taking care of the repair of their gym’s roof. However, he said he refused to take credit for it.

“Pinaliwanag ko na hindi ko to project pero ‘A Project of the People of Paranaque.’ Galing po sa buwis nila ang project na ito,” Golez said.

The vice mayor said he merely made sure that the gym roof’s repair would be funded, and that government funds were used for the project.

Golez’s father, the late Congressman Roilo Golez, would surely be proud to have raised a humble public servant.
